44 people were injured and one policeman died in a Russian missile attack on President Zelenskyy’s hometown in Ukraine

One policeman was killed and at least 44 people were injured in a Russian missile strike on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s village on Friday, according to emergency authorities. According to authorities, it was one of several Russian strikes that occurred overnight around the nation.

The assault on Kryvyi Rih resulted in the destruction of ten structures. Ihor Klymenko, the minister of internal affairs for Ukraine, said that three of the survivors were in critical condition. Klymenko shared images on Telegram of a burning building and rescue personnel rescuing wounded people.

According to Klymenko, three other persons were wounded in a Russian missile strike on the eastern city of Sumy. According to regional governor Oleh Kiper, Russian soldiers also used drones to attack the western Odesa area for the seventh time in a week. There were no casualties recorded.

Mykolaiv’s southern area was also a target, according to governor Vitalii Kim, who posted on Telegram.

One person was wounded, according to the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, in a Russian missile strike on the southern Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia.

A burial service for an 18-year-old who was one of 16 persons killed on Wednesday in a Russian airstrike on a market in Kostiantynivka in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk area was also conducted on Friday.

The attack, which left the market in a fiery, burnt-out ruin and overshadowed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s two-day visit, which was intended to assess Ukraine’s three-month-old counteroffensive and signal continued US support by announcing an additional USD 1 billion in aid.

In reaction to Russia’s withdrawal from a grain pact for the Black Sea and its assaults on Ukraine’s grain supply, Britain said on Friday that it will hold a meeting on global food security in November.

The declaration was made as British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak arrived in India for a meeting of the Group of 20, where he intends to rally support from across the world to lessen the effects of the conflict on the world’s food supply.

The administration of Sunak said that Royal Air Force planes would fly over the Black Sea in an attempt to dissuade Russia from attacking grain-transporting cargo ships from Ukraine.

The UK government stated that it would “monitor Russian activity in the Black Sea using our intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities, call out Russia if we see warning signs that they are preparing attacks on civilian shipping or infrastructure in the Black Sea, and attribute attacks to prevent false-flag claims that seek to shift blame from Russia.”
