According to Yermak, Russian troops hit the city with two S-300 missiles and fired four rounds from BM-27 Uragan systems.

Earlier in the day, Kyrylenko reported that Russian attacks had injured five civilians in Donetsk Oblast over the past 24 hours.

Donetsk Oblast is the site of the war’s fiercest fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces, as Russia seeks to occupy the entire Donbas, comprised of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

Kostiantynivka is located 13 kilometers west of the embattled town of Bakhmut, currently the main hotspot of the war.
