Russian troops hit the city of Kostiantynivka in Donetsk Oblast with an Iskander cruise missile in the morning of Oct. 8, injuring four people, reported the acting governor Ihor Moroz.

Among those injured is a nine-year-old girl, Moroz said.

The attack damaged 19 residences, 10 multistoried buildings, a boiler house, a gas pipeline, a power line, and a car, according to Moroz.

The city of Kostiantynivka lies close to the front line and is a common target of Russian strikes.

Moroz once again urged local residents to evacuate from the city.

"Kostiantynivka is constantly under enemy fire. It is dangerous to stay in the city!" Moroz wrote on Facebook.
