Two Russian missile strikes at Khmelnytskyi Oblast have left three people injured – including two children – regional governor Serhiy Hamaliy said in a Telegram post on Aug. 25.

“The shockwave from two Russian missile strikes in Khmelnytskyi’s Shepetivka has shattered windows and knocked outdoors in several private homes and a local school,” said Hamaliy.

According to the official, a local woman and her two children required medical treatment afterwards.

“They sustained minor injuries from the broken window panes; they’ve been provided with professional medical care,” Hamaliy concluded.
