Russian strike on Ukrainian town of Selydove leaves two civilians dead and eight wounded
On Tuesday night, November 21, the Russian forces once again struck the city of Selydove and the Novohrodivka community in the Donetsk region, killing two people.
Eight others sustained injuries of varying degrees of severity, Rubryka reports, citing the Donetsk Regional Prosecutor's Office.
According to law enforcement, on November 20 at 23:35, the Russian army attacked the city of Selydove, presumably using the S-300 missile system.
"The target for the occupying forces was the city hospital, where people were receiving treatment. As a result of the shelling, eight citizens suffered concussions and shrapnel wounds, and one person died," the statement said.
Russian rockets also hit an enterprise in the Novohrodivka territorial community. A 63-year-old employee, who was on one of the premises, died from the sustained injuries.
The prosecutor's office reported that the buildings of the medical institution and the enterprise suffered significant destruction, and vehicles were also damaged.
The prosecutor's office is conducting a pre-trial investigation under Part 2 of Article 438 (violation of laws and customs of war) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

As Rubryka reported earlier, on the night of November 21, the Russian forces carried out a massive air attack on several regions using missiles and Shahed kamikaze drones. Ukrainian defenders downed 10 Shahed dromes and an Iskander-K missile.
As reported by the General Staff, the Russians used four guided S-300 anti-aircraft missiles, an Iskander-K cruise missile, and 11 strike UAVs.
The Russian forces shelled Selydove before. Last week, Russian invaders shelled a residential building, causing a collapse of the entrance in the city of Selydove, Donetsk region. Four people died in that incident.
