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.
