Russian forces launched a missile attack on a residential area of Kostiantynivka in Donetsk Oblast, injuring at least three people, the State Emergency Service said on April 12.

Settlements in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk Oblast suffer from daily Russian attacks due to their proximity to the front line. Heavy fighting continues in Donetsk Oblast as Russia seeks to occupy the entire region.
