Russian troops dropped a guided aerial bomb on the city of Kharkiv on May 27, killing a woman and injuring at least 12 other people, local authorities reported.

The industrial area of the Kholodnohirskyi district reportedly came under fire. Russia attacked a local civil enterprise, damaging production facilities, Governor Oleh Syniehubov said.

Moscow's forces also attacked an area near the residential buildings in the Shevchenkivskyi district of Kharkiv, Mayor Ihor Terekhov said. No casualties or damages were reported.

"Two enterprises were hit, one of which produces sweets and the other specializes in agricultural machinery," said Serhii Bolvinov, the head of the investigative department of the police of Kharkiv Oblast.

"There was not a single military object at these enterprises. This is another war crime."

Russian forces launched new offensive operations in the north of Kharkiv Oblast on May 10, exposing Kharkiv and a number of border settlements in the region to heavy attacks.

Moscow hit a building materials hypermarket, "Epicenter," on May 25. The attack killed at least 18 people and injured 48, the governor said.
