Five people, including two children, died on Sunday during Russian shelling in Donetsk, its governor Pavlo Kyrylenko has confirmed.
Meanwhile three others died in the Kharkiv region and 14 were injured as a result of continuous shelling through the day, which happened to be Orthodox Easter, a major holiday in both Russia and Ukraine.
“Today, when Orthodox Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, the Russians killed five people in Donetsk region,” tweeted Kyrylenko earlier. “Among the dead are two children aged 5 and 14.”
For many Ukrainians, the day was spent under a strict curfew.
“I am grateful to all the residents of Kharkiv region who refrained from visiting the churches this Easter,” posted Kharkiv governor Oleg Synegubov on Telegram. “As well as the clergy for understanding the situation and a well-considered decision not to hold night services.”
