Russian-backed authorities in the Donetsk region say that a 6-year-old child has been killed and about 20 people injured by Ukrainian shelling of the town of Volnovakha.
Denis Pushilin, acting head of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic, said the incoming rockets "were recorded in an absolutely peaceful, busy neighborhood - near a bus stop, a school and a humanitarian warehouse."
In addition to the rocket attacks, Pushilin said that a "6-year-old girl was killed in the Volnovakha district. The tragedy occurred due to the remote mining of the area, which AFU (Armed Forces of Ukraine) has been carrying out for several days, and one of the mines hit the yard of the house where the girl lived."
Remote-mining involves firing batches of mines over distance.
Earlier, Moscow-backed authorities said about 20 people had been injured, according to the official Russian news agency TASS.
Volnovakha is on a crucial land route between the frontlines and Russian-occupied Mariupol. The town's administration said that three civilians had been seriously wounded.
Kyiv has not commented on the Russian claims, which CNN cannot independently verify.
