Hits were reported in Donetsk on the border of two districts. One of the settlements in the region was left without power due to the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attack, according to the Telegram channel Donbass News.


Explosions were heard in the center of Donetsk. In particular, it is reported that the air defense of the Russian Federation was operating.

Later, it became known about hits in two districts:

  • Voroshilovskyi;
  • Kyivskyi.

As noted by Novosti Donbassa, “the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Donetsk People's Republic" is located in that area. At the same time, the exact place of the strike is still unknown.


The head of the occupation administration of Yasynuvata, Dmytro Shevchenko, reported that a drone dropped a munition, which damaged the city's power supply system. The town is currently without electricity.
