Russian troops struck the village of Ivanopillia in Donetsk Oblast on Feb. 20, killing one person and injuring two, according to Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko.

Russia also hit Toretsk and Avdiivka with artillery and a missile and used multiple launch rocket systems to target the village of Novyi Komar, the governor reported.

The attacks destroyed and damaged a school, an "invincibility center" (such centers offer residents an opportunity to warm up, charge their phones, and connect to the internet during power outages), shops, a cafe, industrial enterprises, and cars, Kyrylenko added.

Earlier, Donetsk Oblast Governor said that Russian forces had attacked 12 settlements and one community in the region over Feb. 19, killing three civilians and wounding one more.

With the Russians intensifying attacks on civilian infrastructure in Donetsk Oblast, Kyrylenko urged the remaining residents to evacuate.
