  • Ivan Fedorov, the head of Ukraine’s southern Zaporizhia region, said three people died in the town of Huliaipole after their house was hit by a Russian shell.
  • A woman was killed in a Russian attack that hit an apartment block in Kupiansk, in the northeastern Kharkiv region.
  • In Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, five people were injured in a Russian attack.
  • In Russia, meanwhile, Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said one woman was killed after shrapnel from a shot-down Ukrainian drone hit a car. Authorities said they brought down 12 drones in the Belgorod region and three over Bryansk.

Weapons
