Three people were killed and other three suffered injuries in a Russian strike on the Donetsk Oblast city of Pokrovsk on the morning of July 8, the State Emergency Service reported.

The attack on Pokrovsk came amid a widespread series of Russian strikes across Ukraine, including Kyiv, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, and other cities.

Governor Vadym Filashkin said that there was preliminary information about attacks on other locations in Donetsk Oblast, but the extent of the damage and potential casualties was unknown.

The strikes took place on the eve of the NATO summit in Washington, where Ukraine hopes to receive long-term aid commitments from the allies.
