Russian forces launched attacks on nine regions across Ukraine over the past 24 hours, killing at least one and wounding nine, regional governors said early on Feb. 19.

A man in the liberated town of Vovchansk in the northeastern Kharkiv Oblast was killed at home, according to Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov. He said that a projectile hit the victim's house during the shelling.

In a village near the liberated Kupiansk, Kharkiv Oblast, two civilians – a 53-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman – were wounded, and the Russian shelling also "seriously damaged" an educational institution there, Syniehubov added.

In the eastern Donetsk Oblast, Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko reported on Feb. 19 that two civilians – in the embattled city of Bakhmut and the village of Vozdvyzhenka (in the Bakhmut District)were wounded over the past 24 hours.
