Russia launched S-300 missiles at the city of Kostiantynivka in the early hours of March 24, killing three women, the Prosecutor General's Office in Donetsk Oblast wrote on March 24.

According to the Prosecutor General's Office, one of the missiles struck the local relief center, known as "invincibility centers" in Ukraine, and another landed nearby.

"Invincibility centers" were set up across Ukraine following the onset of Russia's mass missile strikes in fall 2022 targeting energy infrastructure. They allow local residents to charge their phones, connect to internet, get warm, and have some rest.

The three women killed were internally displaced people from Bakhmut, Chasiv Yar, and a nearby village, the Prosecutor General's Office wrote.

Additionally, one civilian was killed and another was injured in Chasiv Yar by Russian attacks over the past 24 hours, according to Donetsk Oblast Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko.

One person was also injured in Avdiivka and another in Toretsk.

A total of 1,430 people have been reported killed and 3,258 injured in Donetsk Oblast since the start of the full-scale invasion, according to Kyrylenko. However, these numbers do not include casualty rates in occupied Volnovakha and Mariupol, as they are currently impossible to calculate.
