Before the full-scale Russian invasion, 2,063 people lived in Pavlivka in the Vuhledar community. Most of them were evacuated before June 13, when the occupation of the village began. Pavlivka was occupied for three months, but by the end of June, the Ukrainian armed forces released the village from the Russians. On June 27, the evacuation of local residents resumed, because the village is still in the front line and is constantly receiving heavy shelling. In just a few days after Pavlivka was liberated, 91 people, including seven children, were evacuated.
