Russian forces carried out attacks against nine Ukrainian oblasts over the past 24 hours, Ukraine's Defense Ministry media center said on April 12.

According to local authorities, two civilians were killed, and nine more were wounded in the Russian attacks.

Russian attacks were reported in Donetsk, Kherson, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Sumy, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv, and Luhansk oblasts in the east, south, and north of Ukraine.

Russian forces struck Kherson Oblast 35 times, using heavy artillery and aviation, the regional administration said. The attacks reportedly killed one person in the region as well as damaged a church, power lines, a port in the city of Kherson, and an enterprise in Beryslav.

One civilian was killed in Donetsk Oblast's Vuhledar, and eight more people were wounded in Bakhmut, Toretsk, and Novokalynove, according to Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko.

Russian attacks also damaged four houses and a road in Kharkiv Oblast's city of Vovchansk and caused a fire in a field near Izium, added Syniehubov.
