Russian forces shelled the Kurakhove settlement in Donetsk Oblast on Aug. 24, damaging a supermarket and injuring four women, the Donetsk Oblast Prosecutor's Office reported.

According to the prosecutors, Russia launched the attack at around 11 a.m., targeting Kurakhove's center with artillery.

The shells hit a local supermarket with civilians inside. The four women aged between 25 and 66 suffered blast injuries and bruises, one of them was rescued from underneath the rubble, the prosecutors said.

All of them have been provided with medical assistance, the report noted.

Other projectiles hit an administrative building, near which two cars caught on fire. The shelling further damaged a critical infrastructure building and a residential building in the settlement, according to prosecutors.

According to Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko, during the past day, Russian attacks killed one person in Chasiv Yar, and injured two in Iskra and two more in Avdiivka.
