No fewer than 14 people have been killed in the city of Chernihiv, Northern Ukraine by a Russian missile attack.

Ukraine’s Interior Minister, Ihor Klymenko on Wednesday said the missile attack, which hit an eight-storey building in a densely populated area left 60 people injured.

According to the Minister, Three missiles had struck close to the centre of the city.

The attack came hours after reports of a Ukrainian strike on a Russian military airfield in occupied Crimea.


The minister said two children were among the casualties, adding that the police were searching the rubble for further victims.

Reacting, President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Russian strike would not have happened “if Ukraine had received sufficient air defence equipment,” and he repeated an appeal to Western allies to provide support.
