On the evening of June 27, Russian troops shelled the city center of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk region. As a result, a local cafe was destroyed by an enemy missile hit. Nearby multi-storey buildings, commercial premises, vehicles, a post office, and other facilities were also affected by the explosion, with windows, glass, and doors shattered.

As of June 29, the bodies of twelve dead victims (including three children) have been recovered from the rubble. 60 people have been injured (including one child), and eleven more citizens have been rescued, reported the State Emergency Service of Ukraine. Search and rescue operations were finished.

Update: Ukrainian writer Viktoriia Amelina died in the hospital in Dnipro, informed public organization PEN Ukraine. She became the 13th victim of the Russian missile attack on Kramatorsk on June 27.

“In the evening, two Iskander missiles were launched [by Russian troops – ed.] when people had just returned home from work. The criminal regime of the Russian Federation continues its tactics of terror against peaceful Ukrainians. We will find all those who give criminal orders and everyone who carries them out. Punishment is inevitable,” stated Andrii Kostin, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

On June 28, Russian forces also shelled the private sector of the village of Bilenke in the Kramatorsk district. Due to an attack, five local residents were injured.

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the enemy has been regularly shelling Kramatorsk, killing innocent civilians. In April 2022, Russian terrorists launched two Tochka-U missiles at the Kramatorsk railway station during the evacuation of civilians. Due to an attack, 61 citizens were killed and 121 more injured, including 16 children.
