Two people have been injured and four more have been rescued from the rubble of 11 houses damaged as a result of shelling in Ukraine's Luhansk Oblast, Luhansk Governor Serhiy Haidai reported on the Telegram messenger on March 27.
He said that the Ukrainian troops continued to push the Russian army out of the towns of Rubizhne and Popasna, where the invaders had managed to gain small footholds.
"Street fighting is underway in some districts of these cities," Haidai said.
"With the support of artillery, enemy troops tried to storm in Popasna, but suffered losses. They shelled their own positions with mortars."
The governor added that infrastructure facilities had also been damaged as a result of shelling.
"Three more high-rise buildings and eight private houses were damaged by Russian fire in Sievierodonetsk, Lysychansk and Rubizhne," he said.
"A school in a village near Lysychansk, the infrastructure of an ambulance station in Sievierodonetsk, as well as two wholesale warehouses also came under fire."
