UKRAINE, KHARKIV OBLAST, June 12 — At night, Russian troops shelled a fire station in the village of Lyptsi, Kharkiv region. A fire broke out in the aftermath of the Russian attack, reported the State Emergency Service (SES) in the Kharkiv region.

Towns and villages of the Kharkiv Oblast, especially border settlements, came under massive Russian artillery shelling and airstrikes since Russia launched a new ground offensive north and northeast of the region in the Vovchansk and Lyptsi directions on May 10.

Today, the Russians destroyed the building for the second time. According to the SES, the staff was not injured, and no equipment was damaged.

As reported by Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov, the Russian army injured two people in the Kharkiv Oblast over the past day. The Russians hit a car with an FPV drone, injuring one man in Vovchansk. The shelling also injured a woman in the village of Kutkivka, Kupiansk district.
