Late at night, a shell hit an unfinished high-rise building in Kramatorsk, destroying two entrances. The shock wave damaged windows in nearby houses. Fortunately, no one was injured.

“The Russians continue to strike the towns far from the front line. They want to kill as many civilians as possible and sow panic. That’s why evacuation is the only right choice now! Evacuation saves lives!” the head of the region emphasized, addressing those who still stay in the region.

On February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, massively fire on residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages, using artillery, MLRS and ballistic missiles.
