Russia attacked Kupiansk in Kharkiv Oblast with aerial bombs on the afternoon of Feb. 17, killing one woman and injuring at least five people, Governor Oleh Syniehubov reported.

Kupiansk, a crucial logistics juncture that was temporarily occupied by Russia in 2022, is coming under renewed pressure by Moscow's troops.

Syniehubov said that rescuers retrieved the body of a woman, aged 47, from the rubble after the attack.

According to the Prosecutor General's Office, Russian forces carried out the attack at 1:20 p.m. local time, targeting residential areas of the city.

One bomb hit a two-story apartment building, reportedly injuring two women aged 88 and 67.

Several people have been trapped under another house hit by a Russian projectile. Prosecutors said at around 5 p.m. that one woman was rescued from the building's debris, suffering injuries.

Authorities reported later that two men, aged 69 and 44, were also confirmed as injured.

According to a local police chief, Russian forces dropped at least 12 bombs on the city.

Russia launched air strikes against Kupiansk also at 2 a.m., injuring a 75-year-old man and 71-year-old woman.
