KYIV (Reuters) – A Russian airstrike killed at least three people and injured two more in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine on Thursday, local governor Oleh Sinehubov said.

Two bombs hit a car carrying civilians and set a residential building on fire, Sinehubov said. He posted several photographs of a badly damaged burning building and a wrecked car.

Reuters could not independently verify the report or images.

Both sides deny targeting civilians in the war that Russia launched against its neighbour in February 2022.
