RUSSIA: Two killed in strike on village 

TWO people were killed when a Ukrainian missile hit a Russian village near the countries’ border, the regional governor said Sunday.

Missiles hit the village of Suzemka, to the east of the frontier between the two countries, according to Alexander Bogomaz, the governor of Bryansk oblast.

“As a result of the strike inflicted by Ukrainian nationalists, unfortunately, two civilians were killed,” he said in a message posted on Telelgram.

“According to preliminary data, one residential building was completely destroyed, two more houses were partially destroyed.”

It comes after a week in which Russia renewed heavy missile attacks on Ukrainian cities, killing 23 people including a baby boy, and a massive fire broke out in Moscow-annexed Crimea after a suspected drone attack.

Moscow-installed officials in eastern Ukraine also reported that Ukrainian shelling had killed nine people including an eight-year-old girl in the city of Donetsk.
