Russian shelling killed two people and injured another in Kurakhove, a city in the Donetsk region, a Ukrainian official said Sunday, APA reports citing CNN.
“The Russians shelled Kurakhove with artillery," Pavlo Kyrylenko, head of the Donetsk region military administration, said via Telegram. He reported that, in addition to the three victims, four homes were damaged.
“This is not the first time Kurakhove has come under enemy fire — the Russians are consistently and purposefully aiming at civilians,” Kyrylenko said.
The official urged the remaining civilians to leave the Donetsk region in order for their safety.
