The war in Russia and Ukraine is live: six dead in the strike at the Kharkiv postal center

Following the attack of a Russian missile on a Ukrainian mail depot which left six dead

Russian forces maintained pressure on the eastern town of Avdiivka on Sunday and intensified shelling in the southern Kherson area.

Russia has focused on the industrial east since it withdrew after its failed advance on Kiev at the start of the February 2022 invasion and its forces have tried to maintain their positions in Kherson since They abandoned the region’s main city late last year.

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, in its evening report, said Ukrainian forces had repelled nearly 20 Russian attacks around Avdiivka, whose buildings were now largely reduced to shells. Russian airstrikes hit nearby villages, the statement said.

It comes as officials in southern Ukraine said on Sunday that the Russian military had used a record number of aerial bombs over the Kherson region in the past 24 hours.

Natalia Humeniuk, a spokeswoman for the Ukrainian army’s Southern Operational Command, said 36 missiles had been recorded in the region, with some villages hit by several strikes.

Separately, six people were killed in a Russian missile attack that hit a postal distribution center in Kharkiv, Ukrainian officials said, as Kherson has seen a record number of bombings in the past 24 hours.

Six killed in Russian missile attack on Kharkiv postal center, Ukraine says

Six people were killed and at least 14 others injured in a Russian missile attack that hit a postal distribution center in Kharkiv, a city in war-devastated northeastern Ukraine, Ukrainian officials said.

“Russian missiles hit the center of Nova Poshta, an ordinary civilian object,” President Volodymyr Zelenksiy said on the Telegram messaging app.

He posted a video showing the building with ripped out windows and scattered construction materials, with red trucks with Nova Poshta written in Ukrainian in front.

Oleh Synehubov, governor of the Kharkiv region, of which the city of Kharkiv is the administrative center, said several of the injured were in serious condition in hospital.

Those killed and injured were employees of the postal center, Synehubov said on Telegram. Police said the workers did not have time to run to the shelter because the siren sounded a second before impact.

Reuters was unable to independently verify this information. There was no immediate comment from Russia. Both sides deny targeting civilians in the war launched by Russia against its neighbor in February 2022.

Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, was devastated at the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion.

Three missiles aimed at Crimea shot down, says Russian-installed governor

Three Ukrainian missiles aimed at targets in Crimea were shot down on Sunday over a Russian-controlled area in southern Ukraine’s Kherson region, the Russian governor said.

Vladimir Saldo, writing on the messaging app Telegram, said the missiles were shot down over the town of Henichesk.

Russian troops occupied the Kherson region from the first days of the February 2022 invasion of Ukraine, but Ukrainian forces have regained control of the region’s main city and areas on the west bank of the river Dnipro. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.

Ukrainian, Russian leaders assess resources as their war enters winter

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he spoke by phone with U.S. President Joe Biden about Washington’s future support for Kiev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin visited a military base near the Ukrainian border, as countries at war were preparing their combat operations for the winter and next year.

Nearly 20 months of war have sapped the military resources of both sides. The fighting is expected to turn into a war of position and attrition as winter approaches, analysts say, with little change along the more than 1,000-kilometer (600-mile) front line.

Zelenskyy said Thursday evening that he had spoken to Biden about a “significant support package” for Ukraine. Western aid was crucial to Ukraine’s war effort.

Teenagers educate government about poisoning risk in Russia as Lords warn UK ‘unprepared’

The British government has been accused of failing to respond to the growing threat of political poisoning in the UK after an A-level student presented a report to the House of Lords highlighting its inaction.

Labor Baroness Kennedy KC, who chaired the panel at the Palace of Westminster on Thursday, highlighted Sophia Browder’s “revealing” research, but added it was “embarrassing” for the Government that a 17-year-old had to highlight her gaps.

Sophia is the daughter of financier Bill Browder, formerly Russia’s largest portfolio investor before being declared a national security threat by Vladimir Putin in 2005.

The British Army’s Royal Engineers have been training Ukrainian civil engineers to defend their energy sector against Russian attacks this winter.

The damage and destruction of critical national infrastructure (CNI) by Russian missile and drone attacks represents one of the greatest threats to the lives and safety of Ukrainian civilians since the invasion.

The two-week training program was developed at the request of Ukraine.

Ukrainians prepare firewood and candles to prepare for a winter of Russian strikes on the energy grid

In the humble courtyard of a destroyed house, a 13-year-old boy cuts firewood to prepare for winter. His mother, Tetiana Yarema, has been preparing for months, remembering last winter’s Russian strikes on energy infrastructure that plunged Ukraine into darkness.

“Those were dark days. I didn’t want anything. I just wanted to pack my bags and go abroad,” said Yarema, 48, who says she ended up staying because of her son’s insistence.

For the Yarema family, like millions of other Ukrainians affected by Russia’s war against Ukraine, winter is a particularly difficult time.
