Nine wounded, including four children, in Russian bombing of southern Ukraine
Kiev ( Ukraine ) (AFP) - Nine Ukrainians, including four children, were injured Saturday in Russian bombing of the city of Voznesensk, near a nuclear power plant in the southern region of Mykolaiv, according to the region's governor, Vitaly Kim.
Kim wrote on the Telegram application that the children ranged from three to seventeen years old, "and all of them are in critical condition," stressing that a girl lost an eye in the attack.
Voznesensk is located about twenty kilometers from Ukraine's Prevdinokrainsk nuclear power plant and about 70 kilometers from Mykolaiv.
The bombing affected a residential building and a number of houses in Voznesensk, which includes about 30,000 people, according to what the State Emergency Service said on Facebook, publishing pictures of a destroyed building.
Heavy and continuous Russian bombardment targets the Mykolaiv region near Kherson, which has been almost completely captured by Russian forces since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Andrei Yermak, director of the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, condemned the attack, saying, "Voznesensk is a terrorist area, which prompted Russia to strike a residential building."
"Our goal is to make not only the current generation of Russians take responsibility, but also their children and grandchildren. Russia will pay the price," he added.
The Ukrainian army confirmed in the morning, on Telegram, that four Russian Kalibr cruise missiles had been shot down near the city of Dnipro (center-east), launched across the Black Sea, by an S-300 air defense system.
Ivan Federov, the mayor of Melitopol in the Kherson region, who lives in exile, confirmed on Telegram that Ukraine had bombed a Russian military base in this occupied city.
On the ground, the Ukrainian army reported Russian attack attempts, especially in the Donetsk region near Bakhmut, Zaitseve and Kudima. And the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine confirmed in a statement this morning that "the battles are continuing."
