About 1,000 people remain in frontline Orikhiv, living in basements
Mykola Vinichenko, head of the Orikhiv Military Administration, says that most of the buildings in the town have been destroyed, with about 10% that were not directly hit
He said this on Espreso TV.
"The enemy hits Orikhiv every day. Currently, there are fewer UAVs. Frontline villages like Novodanylivka and Novoandriivka are suffering more. Enemy artillery is constantly shelling, and people in Orikhiv live in basements. The town has been without electricity and gas for a year and a half, so we are bringing in generators with the help of volunteers and distributing solar-powered lamps to the people. The situation in Orikhiv is very tense," said the head of the Orikhiv City Military Administration.
According to him, there is practically no building in Orikhiv that is not damaged. If the roof of a building is slightly damaged, it is considered to be no damage in the town. Most of the buildings are destroyed, there are about 10% of high-rise buildings that were not directly hit.
"People will spend the winter in basements. We will provide them with coal, 2 tons per household. There are four wells in the town, and water is delivered to local residents every day. As of today, up to a thousand people remain in Orikhiv and do not want to leave their homes. We helped evacuate those who wanted to leave the town. However, people are waiting to return to their destroyed houses. The most important thing for them is to go home," he said.
