The shell hit a lecture hall of a railways university in the Kiev district in northern Donetsk, injuring a young man aged 20 and other men who were working there, the statement reads.
Another man was wounded as shells hit a kindergarten in the city.Several buildings in Donetsk have been seriously damaged and a local chamber of commerce and industry has been completely destroyed as a result of the shelling, according the ministry.
Earlier this week, two teenagers were killed in a school shelling while playing on a sports field in Donetsk. Three other locals sustained various injuries and were hospitalized. All the victims were aged between 11 and 21.
Russia’s Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case into the deadly school shelling. Amnesty International has earlier called for an immediate and unbiased investigation into the attack.
