Kiev, The conflict is increasing once again in the war between Russia and Ukraine. Missiles were fired from Russia at several residential buildings in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine. Due to this many buildings have been destroyed. At least one person died in this. Many families were buried under the debris. The attack from the Russian side with long-range weapons continues. This information was given by local authorities of Ukraine on Thursday. Ukraine’s Minister of Internal Affairs Ihor Klymenko said Russian military units fired six S-300 missiles simultaneously at night.
The missiles hit three cities in the Donetsk region: Pokrovsk, Novohrodivka and Mirnohrad. Emergency workers pulled the body of a 62-year-old man from the debris of a destroyed high-rise building in Novohrodivka, officials said. He said that four more people, including a child, may be buried under the debris. Officials said that a multi-storey building, nine houses, a police office and several vehicles were damaged in the attacks in Pokrovsk. Emergency personnel rescued a man who was covered in blood and holding a six-month-old baby.
Attack for the fourth time in a month
Sarhil Dobryak, head of the city administration, said the city has been attacked for the fourth time in the past month. “They are destroying the civilian population,” he said. All three towns are near the city of Avdiivka, where fierce fighting has taken place in the past few months. There are routes from Avdiivka to areas of Donetsk still under Ukrainian control. Ukrainian officials said recently that Russian forces have stepped up attacks in eastern Ukraine and are trying to establish dominance around the key cities of Bakhmut and Avdiivka.
