Kyiv region police: woman killed at cemetery by missile strike

A resident of Plesetske, the Kyiv region, was killed yesterday by a missile strike, says the local police chief.


“A woman, 69, was at the cemetery during the air raid, honouring the memory of her husband, and was killed by the pieces of a missile. My condolences to the family of the deceased citizen,” he said.

Russia executed mass missile strikes upon Kyiv and several regions of Ukraine yesterday, killing at least one person. Russia’s Defence Ministry denies the strikes.

“All the destruction in the residential quarters of the Ukrainian capital, demonstrated by the Kiev regime, are the direct consequence of the fall and self-destruction of the air defence missiles launched by Ukrainian forces from the foreign-manufactured air defence systems deployed within the city limits,” the ministry said in a statement.
