The governor of Donetsk, just over 100 kilometers southwest of Novidar, said that three civilians were killed on Saturday in a Russian attack on a residential area in the town of Kostjantinivka in eastern Ukraine.

Another 14 were injured in Saturday’s attack, which also caused material damage to four apartments and a hotel, said Donetsk region governor Pavlo Kirilenko.

– Rescue crews and police officers are working at the scene of the tragedy to help people and comprehensively document another crime committed by the Russian occupiers of our country, Kirilenko wrote on Telegram.

Earlier on Saturday, Kirilenko said at least four people had been killed in the Donetsk region in the past 24 hours.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday that the situation on the front remains “extremely acute”, especially in Donetsk where Russia is stepping up its offensive.
