The attack on a bakery occurred during a busy period on Saturday, partially destroying the building. Sources in Russia's Investigative Committee told the media that the bombardment was likely carried out with the use of a U.S.-made HIMARS multiple rocket launch system, supplied to Kiev by the West. "As a result of a strike on a bakery by the Ukrainian nationalists, 28 civilians were killed, including one child," the acting head of the LPR, Leonid Pasechnik, wrote on Telegram on Sunday.
