The eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk has come under renewed Russian attack Thursday, one day after a strike there left at least three people dead, according to a CNN team in the city.
Two missiles landed near an ongoing rescue operation in the residential neighborhood that was hit on Wednesday night.
CNN bore witness to the missile strikes on the city – hearing the first incoming strike, and then seeing the second.
According to preliminary information, Thursday’s strikes have resulted in civilian casualties, said Pavlo Kyrylenko, head of the regional military administration, but it was not clear how many.
“Kramatorsk shook again with explosions as the Russians launched two more missile strikes,” Kyrylenko said on the messaging app Telegram. “Again, they hit the city center, residential buildings.”
The city's mayor, Oleksandr Honcharenko, confirmed that there had been a strike on Kramatorsk and urged residents to stay in bomb shelters.
Wednesday night's attack left eight people wounded, two of whom are in critical condition, Honcharenko said.
