BAKHMUT, Ukraine — At least four civilians were killed in the frontline city of Avdiyivka some 700 kilometers southeast of Kyiv, after the city was massively shelled by Russian-backed separatists at 7 p.m. local time, Ukraine’s National Police reported on May 13.

Reports on social networks said that a private house was destroyed with a direct hit that immediately killed four people, leaving two female children without parents. Authorities said the girls had been taken under police protection.

Social media users claiming to be in the separatist-occupied city of Makiyivka wrote that they heard the Russian-backed militant forces firing artillery rounds against Avdiyivka from a position at the Lisne cemetery.
