As can be seen in the new Maxar Technologies satellite images, a series of bombings of military strikes are wreaking havoc across Ukraine.
Volnovoka: In southeastern Ukraine, about 35 miles (55 km) north of Mariupol, much of the small town of Volnovoka is in ruins – destroyed by military strikes. Where some buildings once stood, only burnt structures remain.
On Wednesday, Russian state media interviewed pro-Russian separatists in the Donbass area of the city.
The roof of the city’s railway station looks like it was pierced inside. The buildings to its northeast have their roofs knocked off as well. The only evidence that some buildings were near Central Square was their burnt walls.
In the northern part of Volnovoka, a church and an apartment building were destroyed. Garbage around them is seen covering the ground.
In a roundabout facing the northwestern part of the city, almost all the buildings seen in the satellite image were significantly damaged.
Chernihiv: Dozens of Russian self-propelled howitzers and several rocket launchers are found in a field about 10 miles (17 km) northeast of the city of Chernihiv in northern Ukraine.
In East Chernihiv, you can see many houses burning around a roundabout.
In another satellite image, the multi-purpose playground Chernihiv Stadium caused massive damage to the stands and a large impact groove was found in the center of the stadium.
Kharkiv: In In northeastern Ukraine, several houses are on fire near a large apartment building in the central Kharkiv region. Further north of the city, a snow-covered field near the airport at the Kharkiv Aircraft Manufacturing Company is filled with ditches.
