Volunteers from Estonian NGOs Vaba Ukraina and Ukraina Abi came under Russian missile attack on the morning of Oct. 6, Vaba Ukraina wrote on social platform X , formerly known as Twitter.

Vaba Ukraine did not provide further details on the location of the attack or the number of volunteers who came under the strike.
