On 12 September, Russian troops shelled Krasnohorivka and Avdiivka in Donetsk Oblast, killing two civilians and wounding three more, the Prosecutor’s office of Donetsk Oblast reported.

The Russian army shelled the village of Krasnohorivka with artillery, killing an elderly married couple.

“One of the 152-mm shells hit a private house where an 84-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man lived, killing both of them,” the Prosecutor’s office wrote on its Telegram channel.

Another 70-year-old woman was also injured. She was concussed and suffered burns.

Early in the morning, Russian shelling wounded two civilians in their home in Avdiivka. Two women suffered shrapnel wounds and fractures.
