“Chasiv Yar was attacked in the night: four buildings and a kindergarten were damaged. In the morning, Russians carried out a missile attack on Kramatorsk — the missile fell near a kindergarten,” Kyrylenko notes.

A tense situation is currently occurring in the Soledar urban community: Rozdolivka, Fedorivka, Vasyukivka, Paraskoviivka, and the Soledar outskirts are under fire.

On 14 January, Russian forces conducted a massive shelling of Ukraine. In the city of Dnipro, a missile fell on a multi-storey residential building, destroying one of the sections of the building entirely. Over 200 flats were destroyed.

As of 19 January, 46 people were killed in the attack on Dnipro. Eleven people are considered missing, bodies are still being identified. Over 80 people were injured.

Twenty four people are still hospitalised, three of them in critical condition, a nine-year-old girl among them.
