A Russian missile attack on the city of Smila in Cherkasy Oblast on April 25 hit a critical infrastructure facility and injured six people, authorities reported.

Explosions were reported in Cherkasy Oblast at 6:30 a.m. local time. The explosions followed a warning from the Air Force of the threat of a Russian missile strike in the area.

Serhii Ananko, the mayor of Smila, wrote on Telegram that Russia had attacked a critical infrastructure facility in the city.

Ihor Taburets, the governor of Cherkasy Oblast, also said that a critical infrastructure facility had been struck and damaged but did not specify what it was.

Taburets said there were no deaths reported but that six people had sought medical assistance. All the injured victims refused hospitalization.

The attack also damaged 47 houses on several streets and the windows of a high-rise building.

Russia attacked the city with an Iskander-K cruise missile, Air Force spokesperson Illia Yevlash said.

Smila lies some 30 kilometers (~18 miles) southwest of the oblast's capital, Cherkasy, in central Ukraine.
