Russia launches deadly missile strike on Ukraine’s Mykolaiv


One person was killed and 23 people, including a child, were wounded in a Russian missile strike on an apartment block and houses in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv in the early hours of Thursday, officials said.

“At night, Russia bombarded Mykolaiv with four Kalibr missiles launched from the Black Sea,” President Volodymyr Zelensky said on the Telegram app. “The high-precision weapons were aimed at private houses, a historic building, and a high-rise building. For now, we know about one dead and 23 wounded, including a child.”

Regional Governor Vitaliy Kim said the emergency services put out several fires caused by the missile debris and that they were clearing the rubble.
