One person was killed in a Russian missile attack on the town of Merefa, around 30 kilometers from the city of Kharkiv, on Jan. 7.

Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov wrote on Telegram that a 50-year-old man was killed as a result of the attacks.

Russian forces also attacked the outskirts of Zaporizhzhia on Jan. 7.

The attacks took place amid the Kremlin’s supposed “Christmas truce,” which it said would last from Jan. 6 to Jan. 7. Russia broke the truce within an hour of when it was meant to come into effect.
