However, Russian media denied Ukrainian Army’s claim. Russian news agency Tass said that a mineral fertilizer storage facility exploded in the area and a market, hospital and houses were damaged in the explosion.
Kyiv has reported now eight HIMARS and a truck-mounted missile launcher with high accuracy reported PTI. Notably, the US has promised to send four more HIMARS to Ukraine to fight Russian soldiers.
The fighting has now intensified in Donetsk. Rusia is eying to take full control of Donetsk to consolidate its position in the Donbas region. Since 2014, Russian-backed separatists controlled most parts of the Luhansk and Donetsk republics. Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.
In other parts of Ukraine also, 16 civilians were reportedly killed in the Russian shelling in the past 24 hours. At least 48 civilians were also injured in the shelling, reported The Associated Press. In Donetsk only, nine civilians were killed.
