Toretsk shelled by Russian proxies
The Russian occupation forces have attacked the Ukrainian-held town of Toretsk in Donetsk region, one civilian has been killed, according to the main department of the National Police in Donetsk region.
The population of Toretsk (formerly Dzerzhynsk, renamed in 2016 under the de-communization law) is about 34,000 people. Late in July 2014, the town was liberated from illegal Russia-backed formations of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People Republic (DPR). Since then, it is regularly shelled by the occupation forces.
