Months of bloody battles in the Ukrainian town of Soledar have left it demolished even while battles continue. Soledar, located along the front lines of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, is in the Donetsk Oblast of the eastern region in Ukraine.
Recent satellite images from Maxar Technologies show before and after images of Soledar, a salt mining town on the outskirts of Bakhmut, where more intense fighting has happened. One image from Soledar is from August 2022 while the other is from earlier this month. One has lush, green grass and buildings, homes and schools standing. In the other photo, a snow-covered area is dotted with remnants of shellacked buildings barely still standing.
Here’s what Maxar tweeted Wednesday displaying their images.
