THE Russia announced today that its forces hit two ammunition depots in his area Chernihiv in Ukraine.

Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Russia had destroyed an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system in the Kharkiv region and a radar station near Odessa.

Russia also said it had shot down a Ukrainian drone near Fidonisi, a remote island occupied by Russia on the first day of the invasion.

Meanwhile, a Russian air strike in the northeastern Ukrainian city of Novgorod-Siversky has killed at least three people and injured 12 others overnight, local rescue services say, citing AFP.

“Three people were killed and 12 were injured in an airstrike” in Novgorod-Siversky, a spokesman for the rescue squad said in a statement.

“Today around 00:10 to 00:23, the enemy launched an air raid, possibly from a (pursuit) Su-30SM,” Ukrainian forces said in a statement.

“(The Russians) have hit critical infrastructure, including schools. Other administrative buildings and homes have also been damaged,” Chernihiv regional governor Vitsislav Chaus said earlier this morning.

He accompanied his message with many photos, which show completely destroyed buildings, charred cars and a cloud of smoke rising from the rubble.

Novgorod-Siversky, which had a population of 15,000 before the war, is located about 50 km from the border with Russia, in an area that had remained relatively intact since Russia withdrew from the region in late March.
