The Prosecutor's General’s Office said that the Russian army hit the town of Kostiantynivka, the village of Mykolaivka near Kramatorsk, and Maksymilianivka near the town of Mariinka, damaging houses, residential buildings, cars and civilian infrastructure.

One of the injured is in critical condition.
