A Russian attack on the town of Semenivka in Chernihiv Oblast killed a woman on April 9, Governor Viacheslav Chaus reported.

Chernihiv Oblast is located on Ukraine's northern border with Russia and was invaded and partially occupied during Russia's initial onslaught in February 2022.

Russian forces withdrew from Chernihiv Oblast in April 2022, but due to its proximity to the border, the region is still being attacked regularly.

A Russian drone attacked a bus in the Novhorod-Siverskyi district of Chernihiv Oblast on March 22, injuring three people, according to Chaus.

"If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
