Ukrainian drones and missiles kill four people in Russia and Crimea after bombing of Kharkiv kills three

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russian authorities said four people were killed in Ukrainian drone and missile strikes on Sunday, a day after Russia bombed Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, killing three people and leaving dozens in hospitals left behind.

Three people – including two children – were killed by falling debris when five Ukrainian missiles were shot down in Sevastopol, a port city in Russia-annexed Crimea, said Mikhail Razvozhayev, the city’s Moscow-installed governor. Nearly a hundred people were injured, he said.

One person was killed and three were injured in Russia’s Belgorod region, bordering Ukraine, when three Ukrainian drones attacked the town of Grayvoron, regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said.

Air defenses shot down 33 Ukrainian drones over the western Russian regions of Bryansk, Smolensk, Lipetsk and Tula overnight, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday. No casualties or damage were reported.

The attacks came after Russia hit Kharkiv with four aerial bombs on Saturday afternoon, hitting a five-storey residential building and killing three people. Regional Governor Oleh Syniehubov said 41 people were still being treated for injuries on Sunday.

In a video address after the attack, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky urged Ukrainian partners to strengthen air defenses.

“Modern air defense systems for Ukraine – such as Patriots, accelerated training of our pilots for F-16s and, above all, sufficient range for our weapons – are really necessary,” he said.

Two people were injured by falling debris when two Russian missiles were shot down over the Kiev region overnight, Ukrainian air force commander Mykola Oleschuk said.

Regional Governor Vadym Filashkin of Ukraine’s partly occupied Donetsk region said Russian attacks on Saturday killed two people and wounded four.
