The police said 15 cities and towns, including Bakhmut, Konstyantynivka, and Avdiivka, came under attack.

Russia attacked the region with S-300 missiles, aircraft, Grad and Uragan multiple rocket launchers, artillery, mortars, and tanks, according to the report.

Donetsk Oblast Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said in his daily briefing that two civilians were killed and four were wounded over the past day.
