Russian troops attacked the village of Drobysheve and the city of Mykolaivka in Donetsk Oblast, as well as Kherson, inflicting casualties among civilians, local authorities reported on March 28.

Russia shelled Mykolaivka with guided munitions, killing one woman and damaging at least 11 multi-story buildings and 11 houses, according to Donetsk Oblast Governor Vadym Filashkin.

In Drobysheve, at least one person was injured, but the information is still being clarified as of 4 p.m. local time, the governor said.
