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.
As Ukraine was celebrating the 31st anniversary of its independence on Aug. 24, Russia launched a flurry of long-range missiles at targets across the country, with 189 air raid alerts active throughout Ukraine throughout the day.
Enemy missiles struck Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, Mykolayiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kyiv oblasts.
