Two people have died and three more have been injured by the impact of a Russian projectile on a multi-storey building in the city of Bakhmutin the Ukrainian province of Donetskas reported by the Ukrainian authorities.

The military governor of the Donetsk region, Pavlo Kirilenko, has reported this attack and others that have caused the death of a third person on his Telegram account. “In just one day the Russians have killed three neighbors in the region of Donetsk and they have injured four others”, he pointed out.

Specific, Kirilenko You have mentioned Russian attacks against Konstiantinivka, Niu York, Avdiivka and Soledar that have caused damage to six buildings of various heights, two private homes and a commercial warehouse.

“In New York there are three houses damaged and in Konstiantinivka Two rockets have hit, one in a kindergarten and another in a university”, he explained. “The shelling continues on Torski and Zarichni and also on Siversk, although there are no casualties,” she stressed.

Donetsk has resisted, so the Russian army has increased its manpower and resources around Bakhmut.

Taking Bakhmut would cut off Ukrainian supply routes and open an avenue for Russian forces to push towards Kramatorsk and Sloviansk, two key Ukrainian strongholds in Donetsk.

Like Mariupol and other disputed cities, Bakhmut has suffered a long siege and spent weeks without running water or electricity even before Moscow launched massive attacks on public infrastructure across Ukraine.
