In the latest series of attacks and shelling in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, six people were killed in the shelling attack by Russia in the Donetsk region of eastern Ukraine, say Ukrainian emergency services.

So far, the rescuers have only found five bodies in the rubble, while another person died in hospital.

Heavy fighting continues in the east and Russia has also been advancing slowly. Moreover, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu has ordered generals to focus on destroying Ukraine’s long-range missile and artillery weapons.

They are furthering their advance by setting fire to wheat fields and grain storage silos. Just a day ago, the Russian ministry mentioned a Russian missile strike on the Donetsk village of Kostiantynivka. The Ukraine war waged by Russia has killed nearly 250 mercenaries while destroying 19 military vehicles.

However, none of these claims could be independently verified.

Recently, the US also supplied long-range missiles, including precision-guided High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (Himars), to Ukraine.

These rocket systems (Himars) are far more accurate than Russia’s capable systems.
