Some 700 public infrastructure facilities have been damaged and destroyed by shellings in Donetsk over the past three weeks, the head of the city administration, Alexey Kulemzin, told the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Wednesday.

“The shellings don’t stop, in the last three weeks we have had about 700 facilities destroyed and damaged. This includes schools, kindergartens and residential buildings. <…> The shellings of civilian facilities continue,” he said.

The mayor noted that on Wednesday two schools were shelled and two kindergartens were destroyed. “Here [from Ukraine’s side] all kinds of heavy artillery weapons are used to shell residential neighborhoods,” he added.

Early on Wednesday, the Ukrainian military struck a district of Donetsk. The projectile hit a house and also damaged windows of a number of buildings.

According to the DPR’s people’s militias, two residents were killed and four others, including a 1.5-year-old child, were injured when the roof collapsed.
