Three people were killed and twelve injured in a Russian bombing attack on Selydove, near Donetsk, eastern Ukraine.. This was reported by local authorities. The shots hit nine apartment buildings and the hospital in the city, located about twenty kilometers west of the front line, the local council said on Telegram. According to the same source, there would also be a child among the dead. About a hundred patients from the damaged hospital were evacuated to other hospitals in Pokrovsk and Myrnograd, the governor of the Donetsk region, Vadym Filachkine, added on Telegram.

No source immediately specified the type of attack (missiles, drones or artillery). Selydove, which before the war numbered about 21 thousand, is located on the outskirts of the large city of Donetsk, occupied by Russia since 2014. Furthermore, two Ukrainian drones were intercepted on Wednesday evening by Russian air defense over the Belgorod region, near the border with Ukraine, another on Voronezh and six others on the Black Sea, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense cited by the Ria Novosti agency.
