Invading Russianforces launched a missile strike on the village of Desna in Chernihiv Oblast in northern Ukraine early on May 17, killing and wounding several village residents, Chernihiv Governor Viacheslav Chaus said in a video on Facebook.
He said that around 5 a.m., enemy aircraft launched four missiles, two of which hit buildings in the village.
Chaus added that rescue teams and law enforcement officers are working on the scene.
"Preliminarily, we have dead and many wounded," he said.
Desna was likely targeted because it houses a training center for the Ukrainian military.
