Russian troops attacked the village of Zolochiv in Kharkiv Oblast, killing two people and injuring 13, including a child, Kharkiv Oblast Prosecutor's Office reported on May 1.

Russia carried the strike out at around 10 a.m. local time with KAB aerial bombs and damaged buildings and cars, killing a 62-year-old man and his 38-year-old daughter who were sitting inside one of the vehicles.

A 77-year-old man and a 74-year-old woman were hospitalized with injuries, Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov said. Men aged 35 and 50, a 41-year-old woman, and an 11-year-old boy were also wounded and provided necessary medical attention, the governor reported.

Administrative buildings, a bank, and over 20 cars were damaged, and one house was destroyed in the attack.

Russia has recently intensified attacks against Kharkiv and Kharkiv Oblast, using missiles, glide bombs, and drones to destroy energy infrastructure and kill civilians.

On April 30, Russian forces struck two districts of Kharkiv, killing one person and injuring nine.
