At least three people were killed and five injured in a Russian attack on the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv on Wednesday morning, according to the region’s military governor.
“The Russian occupiers carried out a missile attack on Mykolaiv,’’ Vitaly Kim, the Governor of the Mykolaiv region, wrote on Telegram.
He added that one missile had hit a high-rise building.
Local authorities called on people to remain in air raid shelters and not to post pictures of damage caused by the attacks.
Elsewhere, Russian troops in Eastern Ukraine were attempting to encircle the strategically important city of Lysychansk in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine.
This is according to the Ukrainian general staff’s situation report.
Russian troops were reported by the Ukrainian military to be on the southern edge of the city, while pro-Russian separatists reported that fighting was already underway inside the city.
Russian attacks were taking place around the town of Bakhmut, west of Lysychansk, the general staff report said.
Two bodies were recovered after an attack on the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro on Wednesday morning.
According to local media reports, six missiles were fired in total at Dnipro on Tuesday, one of which hit a car repair shop.
