Dead and wounded in a missile attack in Ukraine

According to official information, a residential building in the southeastern city of Kryvyi Rih was bombed during the Russian attacks on Ukraine. At least six people were killed, writes the military governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region Serhiy Lysak.

Three cruise missiles managed to push back the air defenses, while others hit civilian targets. It is also said that there were 25 injuries.

A state of air alert has also been declared in several other regions of Ukraine. Authorities there said the Russians fired cruise missiles again, including at the capital, Kiev. There, however, their air defense shot down all enemy flying objects. Reports of drone strikes were received from the eastern city of Kharkiv.

Russia reported attacks in Kursk Oblast

Meanwhile, Ukraine bombed villages in Russia’s Kursk Oblast this morning, Russian sources said. Roman Starovojt, the governor of Kursk, said in a Telegram that several houses were damaged and two were on fire. Gas and electricity supplies were cut off.

The villages of Tgorkino and Glushkovo, near the border with Ukraine, were affected. There was no information about possible victims. Ukraine has almost never committed attacks inside Russia or on Russian-controlled Ukrainian territory.

Also this morning, a fire is said to have broken out at an oil refinery in Russia’s Krasnodar Territory. The Russian media company RBK, citing local authorities, reported that the fire had been contained. The cause of the fire is not clear.

The United States is concerned about North Korea

Meanwhile, the United States has expressed concern about possible arms sales from North Korea to Russia. Despite statements to the contrary by the government in Pyongyang, North Korea handed over a shipment of weapons including infantry and rocket missiles to the Wagner Mercenary Force in November 2022, according to a US State Department spokesperson.
