At least 10 people were killed and dozens wounded in Russian strikes on Ukraine in the past 24 hours, with Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv being the most affected cities. The attacks caused extensive damage to residential areas and public infrastructure.

In Zaporizhzhia, four people were killed and 23 injured, with more than 40 buildings damaged, including private houses and apartment blocks. Governor Ivan Fedorov described the missile strikes as devastating, leaving the city in a state of shock.

Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, also suffered casualties with six people killed and 11 wounded in overnight missile strikes. Mayor Ihor Terekhov reported significant damage to residential areas in the Shevchenkivskyi district, including schools, kindergartens, and apartment buildings.

Ukrainian Air Force Commander Mykola Oleschuk revealed that Russia launched six missiles and 32 Shahed combat drones at Ukraine, with three missiles and 28 drones intercepted. The attacks not only caused loss of life but also created a sense of fear and uncertainty among the residents of the affected cities.

Despite the intense airstrikes, the Kyiv region managed to evade casualties, as reported by the Kyiv Regional Military Administration. The situation remains tense as Ukraine continues to face relentless attacks from Russian forces, leading to a growing humanitarian crisis in the country.
