The number of casualties from a missile strike on Selydove in the Donetsk region has increased by two more individuals. Currently, there are reports of 8 wounded and one fatality, according to the Donetsk Regional Prosecutor's Office.

On November 20, at 23:35, the Russian army reportedly targeted the city of Selydove, presumably using the S-300 missile system.

"The target was a city hospital where people were receiving treatment. As a result of the shelling, 8 civilians suffered concussions and shrapnel wounds, and one person died," officials said.

According to the prosecutor's office, enemy missiles also targeted a facility located in the territory of the Novohrodivska territorial community.

Under the procedural guidance of the Donetsk Regional Prosecutor's Office, a pre-trial investigation is underway in a criminal case related to the violation of laws and customs of war (Part 2, Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
