Three civilians were killed as a result of Russian shelling of the Donetsk region overnight into Sunday, according to Vadym Filashkin, the head of the Donetsk Regional Military Administration.

“Overnight, the Russians attacked Dobropillia with suicide drones – in the morning, rescuers retrieved the bodies of two people from under the rubble of a house. Additionally, this morning the enemy shelled Chasiv Yar with artillery, killing a 66-year-old man,” Filashkin wrote on Telegram.

In Dobropillia, two administrative buildings were damaged, according to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine. There was partial destruction of the buildings followed by fires involving furniture and building structures.
