Families of Ukrainian prisoners of war are demanding an investigation into the explosion that killed at least 50 people in a prison camp in the temporarily occupied village of Olenivka. Russian occupiers are shelling civilian infrastructure and residential buildings in the cities and towns of Ukraine every day. Due to a damaged water pipe, Mykolaiv still remains without a centralized water supply.
