On the morning of October 6, Russian troops launched strikes with Iskander missiles at two city districts, targeting mainly civilian infrastructure. There are destruction and casualties.

Due to an enemy attack, 30 people were injured, including an 11-month-old boy. Two more citizens were killed, including a 10-year-old boy, reported Oleh Syniehubov, Head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration.

Survivors of the attack mostly have explosive injuries, shrapnel wounds to arms, legs, and face, as well as hematomas. Two victims have an acute reaction to stress.

As a result of the Russian missile strikes, 72 infrastructure objects in the central part of Kharkiv were damaged, of which 69 were residential buildings. In particular, the Kyivskyi and Osnovianskyi city districts were affected.

“Kharkiv, the Russian strike this morning (…) And I thank all our soldiers who, despite everything, are moving forward, destroying the occupiers and bringing the return of justice to Ukraine closer. Our resilience, our movement, and the daily losses of the occupiers are what should be the answer to Russian terror,” commented President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, another Russian terrorist act.

Just a day before, Russian forces shelled the village of Hroza in the Kharkiv region and hit a local grocery store and cafe. Due to an enemy attack, the building was completely destroyed, and more than 50 people were killed.
