Emergency officials reported that a Russian missile attack on Friday on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s hometown in central Ukraine resulted in the death of one policeman and at least 52 injuries, while a separate attack in the southern Kherson region claimed the lives of three people.

Russian attacks were widespread overnight in the country, according to officials, including the strikes.

Moscow is currently making an effort to solidify its political position by holding local elections in areas that it has illegitimately annexed, including some that it still does not control.

In a statement, the foreign ministry of Ukraine said that it did not recognize the “fake elections.”

The attacks happened shortly after drone debris was discovered in Romania and 16 people were killed in a Russian attack on a market in eastern Ukraine.

Residents in the area began to worry that the war might spread to the NATO-member nation bordering Ukraine as a result.

In the attack on Zelenskyy’s hometown of Kryvyi Rih on Friday, ten buildings were damaged.

According to Ihor Klymenko, Ukraine’s minister of internal affairs, three of the people who were rescued from the rubble were in critical condition.

Klymenko shared images on Telegram of a burning building, burned wood, and emergency personnel rescuing injured people.

According to Klymenko, three more people died on Friday after a Russian bomb exploded in the village of Odradokamianka in the southern Ukrainian region of Kherson.

A funeral service for an 18-year-old who was one of 16 people killed on Wednesday in a Russian attack on a market in Kostiantynivka in the eastern Donetsk region of Ukraine was also taking place on Friday.

The attack, which left the market in a fiery, blackened ruin and injured 33 other people, overshadowed a two-day visit by American officials.

Antony Blinken, the secretary of state, sought to evaluate Ukraine’s three-month-old counteroffensive.

With the announcement of an additional $1 billion in aid, Blinken’s visit signaled continued U.S. support.
