Russian troops have fired on the Zolochiv community from helicopters, leaving two children wounded. The relevant statement was made by Suspilne, referring to Zolochiv United Territorial Community Head Viktor Kovalenko.
“Zolochiv has been extensively fired on today. Detached houses and enterprises were destroyed. Then, Odnorobivka, a village at the border with Russia, came under fire. Eight houses were damaged, and four houses were completely destroyed there. After that, they started to fire on the neighboring village of Oleksandrivka [also at the border with Russia – Ed.]. Two helicopters got there and opened fire. Two children, 9 and 11 years old, were wounded, in the neck and hip area. They were taken to the hospital,” Kovalenko told.
Power transmission lines were damaged, and the villages that came under fire were left without electricity, according to residents.
