'Nothing left' - Rockets hit Ukraine's Kramatorsk

STORY: “I’ve worked here my whole life. This happened and I have nothing left,” local resident Nora said as she looked at boxes filled with goods – everything that was left of her business.

Ukraine said in August that it aims to evacuate two thirds of residents from areas it controls in the eastern battleground region of Donetsk as well as other frontline areas before winter.

Authorities describe the evacuation as "mandatory", but residents can opt out by filling in a form declaring their intention to stay.

Russia has repeatedly denied targeting civilian areas after launching what it called a "special military operation" in February.
