At least eight civilians have been wounded after Russian forces struck the city of Mykolaiv on March 27, regional authorities said.

Mykolaiv Mayor Oleksandr Senkevych wrote at 2:32 p.m. local time that, according to preliminary information, a ballistic missile may have struck the city.

Mykolaiv is situated less than 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the southern front and regularly comes under attack from Russian forces.

There is minor damage in four residential buildings, mostly broken windows in apartments, according to Senkevych.

Mykolaiv Oblast Governor Vitalii Kim reported 30 minutes later that there were six injured people, including one in serious condition, but did not provide any more details.

A drone strike against Mykolaiv overnight on March 25 injured 11 people, two of whom were hospitalized, Kim said.
