Ukraine Says 51 Killed in Russian Missile Attack on Kharkiv Village  

HeadlineOct 06, 2023

Ukraine says 51 people were killed and six others wounded Thursday as a Russian missile struck a store and cafe in a village in the northeastern Kharkiv region. President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Russian assault was no accident.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “The Russian military could not have been unaware of where they were hitting. And it was not a blind strike. People gathered there for a wake, a Christian memorial dinner. Who could launch a missile at them? Who? Only absolute evil. More than 50 people died. Among them was a child, a boy, 6 years old.”’

Separately, officials said a Russian strike on residential buildings in Kharkiv killed a 10-year-old boy and his grandmother, while injuring 26 others. And Russian drones attacked a port in Ukraine’s Odesa region early Friday, damaging a grain silo near the Danube River.
