According to officials, Russian forces targeted the communities of Bilopillia, Myropillia, Yunakivka, Novoslobidske, and Velyka Pysarivka.
Officials recorded 80 strikes with mortars, grenade launchers, missiles, and artillery in the settlements.
Russia’s shelling of the Velyka Pysarivka community wounded one person and damaged one house, a car, an outbuilding, and a fence.
