53 civilians killed in Chernihiv on March 16

Fifty-three civilians have been killed in Russian shelling in Chernihiv over the past 24 hours.

Viacheslav Chaus, head of Chernihiv Regional State Administration, said this in a statement posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

"The enemy is exposing the city to systemic artillery and air strikes, destroying the civilian infrastructure of Chernihiv. Over the past 24 hours, 53 bodies of victims killed by the Russians have been brought to the morgue. The Armed Forces of Ukraine retaliate with devastating blows. The enemy is panicking and incurring losses," Chaus said.

He also dwelled on utility services and social problems. Despite continuous shelling, crews of electricians and other utility workers are constantly working in the city, trying to restore electricity, gas and water supply. Chaus advised everyone sheltering in basements without water and food to turn to the military.

He also spoke separately about the negotiations on the organization of an evacuation corridor.

"It depends not only on us, but also on the enemy. Until there is an agreement from the invaders, I will not send people to certain death," Chaus said.

Thirteen people lining up for bread in Chernihiv were killed in an artillery strike on March 16.
