Seven people were killed when a shell hit a minibus in Donetsk, the Russian-appointed "mayor" of the city, Aleksey Kulemzin, said .
The pro-Russian authorities said that the shelling of three districts of Donetsk - Kuibyshevsky, Voroshilovsky and Kyiv - was carried out by Ukrainian troops. At the time of publication, there was no official information from the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ukrainian authorities about the shelling.
Another shell hit the territory of the Olimpiyskiy stadium.
Ukrainian journalist and blogger Andrei Tsaplienko said that the Russian Federation shelled the center of Donetsk in order to divert attention from the killing of civilians during the rocket attack on Uman and the Dnieper, and to accuse the Ukrainian Armed Forces of their own crimes.
Early in the morning of April 28, Russian troops launched a massive missile attack on the Dnepropetrovsk, Cherkasy and Kyiv regions. In Uman, a rocket hit a residential building, rescuers got the body of 16 dead, and the rubble continues to be cleared. In Dnipro, a rocket attack also hit a residential building, killing two people, including a two-year-old girl. In the city of Ukrainka, south of Kyiv, rocket fragments hit a residential building, injuring a girl.
A missile attack was also carried out from strategic aircraft on Kiev, said the head of the OVA, Sergei Popko. 11 cruise missiles were shot down over the city, as well as two drones. In total, 21 out of 23 Kh-101 / Kh-555 cruise missiles, as well as two operational-tactical UAVs, were destroyed during the missile attack , the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said.
