"One person was injured in Mykolaivka of the Kostyantynivka community," the statement reads.

The head of the region added that one person was injured in Kurakhivka. Isolated shelling was recorded in Avdiivka and Krasnohorivka. Over the past day, a total of 10 people were injured.

Shelling in the Donetsk region

Russian forces opened fire on cities and villages in the Donetsk region daily. Settlements near the front line and even relatively farther away are constantly under attack. That's why people are urged to evacuate to safer areas of Ukraine.

During a recent meeting of the Coordination Staff, a decision was made to expand the forced evacuation of children in the region. An additional nine communities expanded the list of settlements subject to evacuation.

The occupiers attacked the city of Pokrovsk the day before yesterday. As a result, nine people were killed, and 82 others were injured.
