A Russian attack against the city of Novomoskovsk in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on June 13 injured around five people, including a three-year-old girl, Governor Serhii Lysak reported.

The girl suffered a blast injury, burns, and cuts. She has been hospitalized and is in a condition of moderate severity, the governor said.

Another girl, aged 12, suffered shock and will be recovering at home, Lysak added.

The attack damaged 91 houses, five education institutions, and a gas infrastructure facility. Emergency services extinguished a fire that started by the attack, Lysak said.

Novomoskovsk, a town with a pre-war population of over 60,000, lies on the northern outskirts of the regional center, Dnipro. Dnipropetrovsk Oblast in central-eastern Ukraine suffers regular strikes by Russian missiles and drones.

An attack on the residential area of the city of Kryvyi Rih on June 12 killed nine people and injured 32, including five children, said Oleksandr Vilkul, the head of the city's military administration.
