Russian attacks against Ukraine killed one person and injured 15 over the past day, regional authorities said on June 17.

Russia targeted a total of nine Ukrainian oblasts — Chernihiv, Poltava, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, Kharkiv, and Donetsk. Casualties were reported in the latter three regions.

A Russian attack on the village of Nova Poltavka in Donetsk Oblast injured seven people, Governor Vadym Filashkin said.

The Pokrovsk and Bakhmut districts also came under Russia's attacks. Two people were injured in the town of Krasnohorivka and one in the town of Toretsk, according to Filashkin.

In Kharkiv Oblast, a Russian air strike damaged four houses and an ambulance in the village of Pisky Radkivski, Governor Oleh Syniehubov reported. A 13-year-old boy, a man, and a woman suffered injuries, he added.

Russian forces also attacked a children's camp in the city of Kharkiv with aerial guided bombs overnight on June 16, damaging a building, according to Syniehubov. No casualties were reported.

Russian attacks against Kherson Oblast damaged seven houses, critical infrastructure, a car, and a gas pipeline, said Governor Oleksandr Prokudin. Two people were injured in the region over the past day, according to Prokudin.

Russian "kamikaze" drone also attacked a car in the village of Osokorivka in the morning of June 17, killing a man born aged around 50, the governor reported.

In the first half of May, Russia opened a new front to its war against Ukraine in dramatic fashion. The two-pronged offensive on Kharkiv Oblast unfolded on the back of some of the most difficult months for Ukrainian forces, overstretched and depleted after a brutal winter and early spring campaign
