Another attack occurred during the distribution of humanitarian aid in Sadove village, where a woman was injured.

The shelling caused significant damage, including to houses, farm buildings, power lines, gas pipelines, an official vehicle belonging to a postal operator, and three cars belonging to an organization involved in the distribution of humanitarian aid. Two women were injured during the attack. Meanwhile, the village of Zmiivka experienced an airstrike by the Russian army, resulting in damage to residential buildings and agricultural machinery.
