The Tochka-U missile hit the center of the 50th Victory Anniversary Square at a time when many people were walking around the place, Ludmila Rusanova, head of the Svatovski district administration, told the TASS news agency.
The injured were taken to medical facilities in Luhansk.
According to preliminary data, the fragments of the missile caused damage to windows, roofs of residential buildings, three civilian cars and a gas pipeline in the community.
The spokesman of the LPR People’s Militia, Ivan Filiponenko, reported earlier that the air defense forces had shot down another three Tochka-U missiles, also launched by the Ukrainian Army against Svatovo.
Moreover, one person was killed and several were injured as a result of a bombardment carried out on Friday by the Kiev forces against the town of Chernobayevka, in the Kherson region, a representative of the military and civil administration of the territory said.
Local authorities recalled that an 84-year-old man died on May 16th as a result of a bombardment using a BM-30 Smerch multiple launch rocket system loaded with cluster munitions, while another civilian was injured.
