Russian troops launched an S-300 missile at the city center of Kupiansk in Kharkiv Oblast on the morning of April 25, according to Governor Oleh Syniehubov.

The Russian missile hit a local history museum, killing one of its employees and wounding at least ten more people, President Volodymyr Zelensky reported.
