Another two S-300 [anti-aircraft] missiles hit the village of Krasnopillia. As a result of this missile strike, windows shattered in one building in Krasnopillia."

The invaders also shelled the village of Krasnopillia itself from the territory of the Russian Federation. There was a strike near a railway station and in a residential neighbourhood. Information about casualties and damage is being clarified at the moment. 

There was a mortar attack in Bilopillia hromada; nine strikes were observed.
