At least three people have been killed in a Russian attack in Ukrainian Zaporizhzhya, regional governor Ivan Fedorov said according to the newspaper The Kyiv Independent.

According to Fedorov, two men and a woman were killed when a building was hit in the attack. Another person is said to have been injured.

The region of Zaporizhzhya has been hit hard by attacks from the Russian side. Last Friday, at least four people were killed and 20 injured after a robot attack.

The situation around the town of Tjasiv Jar is also described as “difficult”. According to the military, there is constant Russian shelling.

Tjasiv Jar is an important logistics center for the Ukrainian military. The state is located a couple of kilometers west of Bachmut, which Russia took control of last May.
