The Russian army shelled two towns in the Donetsk Oblast (eastern Ukraine), killing a woman, the Donetsk Oblast Prosecutor’s Office reported.

Russia regularly shells residential areas of Ukrainian towns, increasing the number of civilian casualties every single day.

On the night of 26 January, the Russian army fired two S-300 missiles at Novohrodivka in the Donetsk Oblast, according to the Donetsk Oblast Prosecutor’s Office. An 11-year-old boy who was sleeping in his room was wounded. His parents immediately went to the hospital, where the child was diagnosed with a cut wound to his leg. After providing the necessary assistance, doctors prescribed outpatient treatment.
