KYIV (Reuters) – Three people were killed and six wounded in a Russian attack on Ukraine’s southern Mykolaiv region on Monday, Ukrainian emergencies service and a local official said.

“In the afternoon, as a result of a missile attack on (the town of) Snihurivka, a fire broke out in a coffee shop, a car shop and a tyre service, and a blast wave damaged a self-service car wash,” the service said in the Telegram messaging app.

“The bodies of two people were found during the rubble removal,” it added.

The Mykolaiv governor later said the death toll had risen to three.
