Russian troops struck the cities of Kupiansk and Vovchansk in Kharkiv Oblast on April 28, injuring two people, local authorities reported.

Kupiansk, a crucial logistics juncture that was temporarily occupied by Russia in 2022, has recently been under heavy attacks as Russia intensified its offensive efforts in the area.

Russia carried out an attack on Kupiansk at 10:50 a.m. local time, reportedly using a Grad multiple rocket launcher, according to the Kharkiv Oblast Prosecutor's Office.

The munition hit the house directly, blocking a 36-year-old woman under the rubble. She was released before the emergency services came and was provided with medical care at the scene.

A 52-year-old man got a stomach injury due to the attack. He was hospitalized, the Kharkiv Oblast military administration reported.

Russia also attacked the city of Vovchansk, 90 kilometers north of Kupiansk, on the same morning. The strike happened at 9:50 a.m. local time and damaged two houses. Casualties were not reported.

The day prior, a Russian drone attack injured a 52-year-old truck driver near Vovchansk.

Settlements like Vovchansk in Ukraine's northeastern Kharkiv Oblast are subjected to regular Russian attacks due to their proximity to the front line and the border with Russia.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
