Several people, including a child, have been wounded after a Russian missile struck the Chortkiv district of Ternopil Oblast late on June 11, Ternopil Governor Volodymyr Trush said in a Telegram messenger post on June 12.

He said that the victims had been provided with medical assistance throughout the night.

"Now we're working on eliminating the destruction and fixing the damaged property of civilians," Trush said.

At a briefing after the incident, Trush said four Russian missiles had hit at 9.46 p.m., injuring 22 people, including a 12-year-old child, Ukrainian news website Censor.Net reported.

He said the missiles had been fired from the Black Sea. Part of a military facility was destroyed, and four five-story residential buildings were damaged, he said.

Ternopil is in the central part of western Ukraine, with Lviv Oblast to the west and Khmelnytskiy Oblast to the east.

While some eastern and southern oblasts of Ukraine remain largely or partially under Russian occupation, Ukrainian forces have driven out Russian invasion forces from the northern oblasts of Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy.

The oblasts of Ukraine in the west and center of the country, and the south-central Odesa Oblast have frequently come under missile attack by Russia, with no part of the country remaining unaffected by Moscow’s full-scale invasion.
