Several houses and civilian buildings were “damaged,” the official said.

In the northeastern Sumy region, a Russian missile attack killed two people and injured three, according to the regional military administration.

In the neighboring Kherson region, “one person was killed as a result of Russian aggression,” said Governor Oleksandr Prokudin.

The death toll from the Russian strike on May 25 on a hypermarket in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second city, rose to 19 dead after the death in hospital of an employee who was treated in particular for multiple burns, according to the prosecutor. general.

Kharkiv is the almost daily target of Russian bombings coming mainly from Russian territory. Russian troops launched an offensive in the region in early May, gaining ground against a struggling Ukrainian army, with the Kremlin vowing to do so in response to Ukrainian attacks on its soil.

Kyiv, for its part, says it is only attacking in depth the military sites of the Russian army used in particular to bomb its cities and its energy infrastructures for more than two years.
