Invading Russian troops launched four strikes at the industrial zone of the town of Kramatorsk, Donetsk Oblast early on July 18, local mayor Oleksandr Honcharenko wrote on Facebook.

 “A loud morning in Kramatorsk," he said.

"Four strikes at the industrial zone, it seems from the multiple launch rocket systems."

No casualties have been reported yet.

After the nearly-complete capture of Luhansk Oblast, the Russian army started shelling populated areas of Donetsk Oblast. The enemy is systematically shelling Slovyansk, Kramatorsk, and other settlements in the region.
