On Thursday 5th October, a Russian Iskander missile struck a wake in Hroza village, Kharkiv, killing up to 52 people.
Ukraine’s second biggest city, Kharkiv, has suffered from thousands of missile attacks since Russia’s invasion. How are residents dealing with the destruction?
On September 22, 2023, a missile attack in Kremenchuk, Ukraine by Russian forces resulted in one death and 55 injuries, including six children, with AOAV recording a total of 16,852 civilian casualties from explosive weapons in Ukraine since February 24, 2022.
AOAV has rounded up 12 Russian weapons – Russia’s ‘dirty dozen’ – that have been linked to deadly attacks against the civilian population of Ukraine.
New analysis by AOAV has found that, since 2012, when Russian armed forces used explosive weapons in towns and cities, 98% of the resulting casualties were civilians.
From 17 to 18 Aug, Russian missile strikes on residential neighbourhoods in Kharkiv killed 17 civilians and injured 32.
