Civilians in Donetsk Oblast live close to the front line and are frequently casualties of indiscriminate Russian strikes.

An aerial bomb killed a 72-year-old man in a village in Kramatorsk district, while Russian artillery strikes wounded two men aged 48 and 86 in Pokrovsk district.

In Toretsk, which has been targeted for the second day in a row, an aerial bombardment wounded one 54-year-old woman and three people aged 60. A Russian strike on two mines in Toretsk on Dec. 21 killed three civilians and injured five others.
