Russian forces launched attacks on eight Ukrainian regions in the country’s east, south, and north, using artillery and missiles to strike residential areas, Ukrainian officials said on Dec. 3.
In Donetsk Oblast, where the heaviest fighting rages, one civilian was killed in Soledar in the northern part of the region, Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported.
Four civilians across the region were wounded, he added.
In neighboring Luhansk Oblast, Governor Serhiy Haidai said that liberated areas of the region are now being bombarded with Russian S-300 missile systems, and “desperate battles” are taking place near Svatove and Kreminna.
Kharkiv Oblast also suffered from another day of bombardment, and areas near Kharkiv, Chuhuiv, Kupiansk, and Izium came under attack, according to Governor Oleh Syniehubov.
A 55-year-old in the city of Vovchansk, near Chuhuiv, was hospitalized after a Russian attack, the governor added.
Meanwhile, living conditions in Kherson Oblast remain dire.
Over the past day, Russian forces shelled the region’s territory 28 times, wounding one person, Governor Yaroslav Yanushevych said.
He added that the residential sectors of Kherson were also shelled, damaging residential buildings and other civil infrastructures of the city.
The Nikopol area in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, as usual, endured another night of Russian shelling.
