On June 28, Russia dropped a guided aerial bomb on New York, the Donetsk region. One of the shells destroyed an apartment building entrance, resulting in four deaths and injuring a child, according to the Donetsk Regional Prosecutor's Office.

Russian forces once again bombed the Toretsk community, reportedly using KAB-250 guided bombs.

"One of the shells hit a multi-story building, and as a result of the destruction of the entrance to a five-story building, four civilians aged between 43 and 76 were killed.

Additionally, a 39-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter were injured.

"The condition of the child is assessed as critical," the office noted.

Another shell hit a private sector, injuring a 45-year-old man in the head. In total, four people were killed, and three others, including a child, were wounded in this attack.

Shelling of New York

The town of New York in the Donetsk region is located approximately 5 km from the temporarily occupied city of Horlivka since 2014. As a result, the settlement is constantly under shelling.

For instance, in April, Russia conducted four airstrikes on New York. During that incident, two people were killed, and one person was injured.

Earlier, in January, due to Russian Federation strikes, a stairwell of a high-rise collapsed, and people trapped under the rubble suffered injuries.
