Russian attacks on March 2 injured two women aged 65 and 66 in the Nikopol district of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, as well as a 55-year-old volunteer near Kharkiv Oblast's Kupiansk, officials reported.

The injured volunteer suffered shrapnel wounds and was hospitalized, according to Syniehubov.

The northeastern city of Kupiansk was briefly occupied by Russian forces in 2022 before being liberated in Ukraine's surprise fall counteroffensive. In recent months, Russian forces began ramping up pressure against Kupiansk again, reportedly aiming to encircle this key logistics hub.
