A Russian attack on the town of Vovchansk in Kharkiv Oblast injured three people, Governor Oleh Syniehubov said on Oct. 6.
The shelling caused a building to catch fire, destroying three apartments.
A 76-year-old man, a 75-year-old woman, and a 25-year-old woman were hospitalized due to burns and carbon monoxide poisoning, Syniehubov said.
On Oct. 1, a 63-year-old man was killed by a Russian artillery attack while riding his bicycle in Vovchansk.
Vovchansk, located only a few kilometers from the Russian border, was liberated from Russian occupation in September 2022. Its residents come under regular attack from Russian forces.
