Another Russian missile hit a kindergarten nearby. A funnel with a diameter of 7 meters appeared on the site of the playground. The water main in the yard was also damaged, but emergency services were able to quickly locate the leak. Kindergarten is temporarily without water.

Later, the monitoring group “Belarus Guyun” shared in its telegram channel an intercepted conversation between a Russian dispatcher and pilots of the Russian Air Force bombers. They launched missiles across Ukraine, using the airspace of Belarus. The interception passage contains phrases:

– It’s over. Thanks for the cover-up.
