Russian forces hit an aid center, a health building and residences in the southern and eastern regions of Ukraine, killing three people and wounding at least 11, officials said today, Reuters reports.

In the morning, in the shelling of the city of Kherson in the south of the country, two people were killed and two were injured, Roman Mročko, the head of the city's military administration, said in the messaging application Telegram.

Four doctors were also injured when a Russian missile hit the health building, Mrochko said.

In an overnight rocket attack on the city, the humanitarian center "I am Kherson" was targeted, destroying the aid supplies, according to the statement of the International Rescue Committee.

No staff or visitors were injured, according to the statement.

Local officials said Russia fired two S-300 missiles, also damaging residential buildings nearby.

"We endured a sleepless night due to the relentless explosions as we witnessed our hub engulfed in flames. At dawn, the devastating aftermath revealed that almost everything had been reduced to ashes," said Natalija Humena, project coordinator at the center, IRC reported.

On Tuesday, Russian forces also used the "Grad" multi-barrel rocket system for a two-hour attack on the town of Chasiv Yar on the eastern front line, the General Prosecutor's Office announced.

A XNUMX-year-old resident died on the spot from his injuries, and five people were injured, the office announced on Telegram.

"At the time of the attack, people received water and bread from volunteers," the statement said.

Reuters could not independently confirm the details of either incident.

Russia has denied that it deliberately targeted civilians in its invasion of Ukraine that began in February 2022, even as thousands have been killed in Russian airstrikes across the country.
