The shelling damaged a medical institution, two education buildings, a law bureau, close to a dozen residential buildings, and the electrical grid, the official said. There were no casualties, according to Lukashuk.

"The atrocities of the Russian army committed by the occupiers in Ukraine will not go unpunished. Anyone who gave and executed criminal orders will be held accountable," Lukashuk said.
