In addition, the Russian drone strike damaged the house, power lines, and outbuildings, Viktor Kovalenko said. No one was injured.

Oleh Syniehubov, Kharkiv Oblast Governor, reported that on the evening of July 9, Russian troops shelled Kupiansk-Vuzlovyi in the Kharkiv region, damaging a residential building and destroying a house. The Russian attack killed two people and injured four others.

Volodymyr Tymoshko, head of the Main Department of the National Police in the Kharkiv region, said on Ukrainian TV on July 8 that over the past week, Russians had launched about 90 strikes with various types of weapons in Kharkiv and the region, most often targeting frontline settlements.
