Russia struck the town of Toretsk in Donetsk Oblast with artillery fire, destroying a two-story building and killing six people, Ukraine’s State Emergency Service reported via Telegram messenger on July 18.

The bodies of five of the dead have been recovered from under the rubble. Three more people were injured in the attack, with one succumbing to their wounds in hospital.

At the moment, search and rescue work at the structure has been completed.

After the nearly-complete capture of Luhansk Oblast, invading Russian forces switched to shelling the settlements of Donetsk Oblast. The invaders are systematically shelling Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and other cities in the oblast.
