📌 Yesterday evening, the russian army struck several times at the Kholodnohirskyi district of Kharkiv City. The occupiers hit an infrastructure facility.
As a result of shelling by russia, six people were injured in the Kharkiv region in the last 24 hours. Among them is a 16-year-old girl in the village of Petropavlivka, Bohodukhiv district. She is in severe condition.
📌 The occupiers fired S-300 rockets at a school in Mykolaivka (Donetsk region), where there was a civilian bomb shelter. There were 12 people there. The warehouse survived, and no one was injured.
📌 At 00:50, there was an attack on the Mykolaiv industrial zone with S-300 missiles. There was also artillery shelling of the Ochakiv water zone, and there were no casualties. Kamikaze drones attacked the port area of Ochakiv.
📌 The occupiers struck Nikopol (Dnipropetrovsk region) three times at night, hitting the power lines. They were fired from Hrad MLRS and heavy artillery. No one was injured, but more than ten high-rise and private buildings were damaged, and almost 8,000 families were left without electricity.

📌 Almost 700 thousand doses of poliomyelitis vaccine were given to Ukraine free of charge by UNICEF.
