A total of 17 civilians have been killed in Russia’s late night and early morning missile strikes on the city of Kharkiv. Two more civilians were killed in Russia’s missile strike on the city of Krasnohrad.

A married couple was killed in their own house in Krasnohrad, as Russian missiles struck the city. Their 12-year-old daughter was thrown out of the house into the yard by the blast wave. She was seriously injured. Two more civilians were reported injured in the city.

Syniehubov called Russia’s massive missile strikes on Kharkiv and Krasnohrad a terrorist attack and a violation of any existing rules of war.

“Russian terrorists deliberately fired missiles at residential houses,” Syniehubov stressed.

According to Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor’s Office Spokesperson Dmytro Chubenko, four civilians were killed and 22 injured in Kharkiv’s Slobidskyi District, 13 killed and 20 injured in Kharkiv’s Saltivskyi District, two killed and three injured in Krasnohrad.
