Donetsk, Jun 22 — DAN. Three civilians have been killed, seven injured over the past day as Ukrainian forces opened fire on the DPR over the last 24 hours, the Republic’s Mission to the JCCC said.

The enemy used heavy artillery, MLRS systems, mortars, and IFVs, firing a total of 255 rounds.

“A man, born in 1948, was killed, a woman, born in 1954, was killed, a six-year-old girl sustained fatal wounds in Makeyevka shelling,” the report reads.
Seven others were injured, including a teenaged girl. 

Forty-one households and infrastructure facilities have been damaged as a total of 13 cities and towns came under fire. 

The morning reports issued by the JCCC exclude information on casualties in the areas where active military action is ongoing.

Russia started a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine on February 24. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the decision was made after the DPR and LPR Heads addressed him asking for help.

The Russian leader said that Moscow is not planning to occupy Ukrainian territory, the only goal is to protect people who have been continuously shelled and subjected to other forms of genocide by Ukraine for eight years. *ot
