Russia shelled two villages in the Kupiansk district of Kharkiv Oblast on May 29, injuring at least seven people, including the elderly, children, and a pregnant woman, Governor Oleh Syniehubov reported on Telegram.
A strike against the village of Kivsharivka wounded three elderly women aged 73, 85, and 90, a pregnant woman, and two children aged 14 and 10.
Furthermore, a dormitory building, two private houses, and a gas pipeline were damaged in the village.
Officials released conflicting information on what weapon system did Russia use.
While the governor wrote the village was possibly struck by a ballistic Iskander missile, the Prosecutor's Office suggested that according to preliminary information, Russia used an FAB-250 guided aerial bomb.
The shelling of Hlushkivka, another village in the Kupiansk district, left one 60-year-old woman injured.
All the victims have been hospitalized and emergency services are on site, Syniehubov wrote.
