Ukraine: 14 killed, over 60 injured in Russian missile attack

Ukraine: 14 killed, over 60 injured in Russian missile attack

No fewer than 14 people have been killed in the city of Chernihiv in Northern Ukraine by a Russian missile attack.

Ukraine’s Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said the missile attack, which hit an eight-storey building in a densely populated area, also left 60 people injured.

Three missiles had struck close to the centre of the city.

The attack came hours after reports of a Ukrainian strike on a Russian military airfield in occupied Crimea.

The minister said two children were among the casualties, adding that the police were searching the rubble for further victims.

Reacting, President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Russian strike would not have happened “if Ukraine had received sufficient air defence equipment,” and he repeated an appeal to Western allies to provide support.

Chernihiv is only 100km (60 miles) from the Russian border.
