Seven people were killed when Russian forces allegedly opened fire Thursday on two evacuation buses, according to preliminary information, said the Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor’s Office.

Another 27 people were wounded as the buses travelled near the village of Borova, close to the contested city of Izium, the office added.

“A pre-trial investigation has been launched into violations of the laws and customs of war combined with premeditated murder,” the office said.
