    Ukraine, in Bakhmut with the Russians two kilometers from the center:

    Two places in the upper Valpelline, in the Aosta Valley, will remain isolated at least until Saturday due to two landslides that fell on regional road number 28 in the afternoon. Very popular with tourists fleeing the heat waves, Oyace and Bionaz are not at moment reachable by car.
    As the hours go by, the number of holidaymakers who cannot return to the valley increases. “At the moment there are about 13-14 people who cannot get off and to whom we will have to find accommodation for the night”, explains the mayor of Bionaz, Valter Nicase. Others find themselves stuck in Oyace.
    During a thunderstorm, in the late evening of Thursday the roadway was first invaded by debris from two different streams. Since this morning workers and mechanical shovels were at work to restore the road system. The new detachments took place when the works to reopen the road were almost completed. “It happened around 4 pm, during a fairly strong storm. Waves of mud came down, which touched some houses on the border, in the Condemine hamlet of Oyace”, explains Nicase, confirming that “no one was involved”. If in the other municipality, in Oyace, “the landslide has more or less the same front as the first, in Bionaz it occupies 100 meters, three times the size of that fall last night”.
