Russian attacks kill two in northeastern Ukraine, officials say

(Reuters) -Russian air attacks hit an industrial facility and a residential buildings in northeastern Ukraine on Friday, killing two people and wounding at least seven, local officials said.

Three children and a woman were hurt when guided bombs hit a central part of the town of Derhachi in the Kharkiv region, governor Oleh Syniehubov said on the Telegram messenger.

Two bombs struck an industrial facility in the Sumy region, regional authorities said. They gave no further details.

In a separate artillery strike on the Sumy region, two people were killed and three injured, the national police said.

The two neighbouring regions border Russia and have suffered frequent aerial attacks since Moscow launched its full-scale invasion in February 2022.

The strikes have become more intense in recent weeks, hitting civilian and energy infrastructure.
