Rockets hit Donetsk residential area, Russia-backed official says

Three rockets hit Donetsk in eastern Ukraine early Monday, the head of the city’s Russia-backed administration said.

In a Telegram post, Alexei Kulemzin said a shopping complex, pharmacy, meat-packing plant and residential building in the Kalininsky district were damaged as a result of the strike.

Search and rescue operations are underway and there are no reported casualties so far, Kulemzin added.

Remember: The city of Donetsk has been held by Moscow-backed separatists since 2014. Moscow regards it as Russian territory since claiming last year in violation of international law that it had annexed all of the Donetsk region — including the approximately 40% that lies outside Russian control.
