Ukraine on Friday said four people were killed and dozens injured as Russia launched a new wave of airstrikes in the center and east of the country.
“A Russian aerial bomb killed three civilians in Odradokamyanka - two women and a man. Four local residents were injured,” Interior Minister Igor Klymenko said, calling the strike in the southern region of Kherson a “war crime.”
Odradokamyanka is about 60 kilometers (about 40 miles) upstream of Kherson city and lies on the west bank of the Dnipro River.

“Rescuers of the State Emergency Service pulled out three more from under the rubble. They are in serious condition,” he said.
Photos he shared from the scene showed smoke spewing from the ruins of the building as rescue workers carried an injured person to an ambulance.
Over 40 people were injured in the city, local officials said.
At least three people were injured after Russia also struck the city of Sumy in northeast Ukraine, officials said, while one man was injured by a rocket attack on Zaporizhzhia in the southeast.
