An eight-year-old child was injured in Kirovohrad Oblast, where an unnamed critical infrastructure object was targeted. The condition of the wounded is not known.

13 houses and almost three dozen garages were damaged.

The targets of today's Russian attack were power generation and transmission facilities in Poltava, Kirovohrad, Zaporizhzhia, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, and Vinnytsia oblasts.

Rinat Akhmetov's DTEK energy holding reported that its thermal power plants were targeted, in particular.

"The enemy fired at three of our TPPs. This is already the fifth massive attack on the company's energy facilities in the last month and a half."

Previous attacks took place on March 22 and 29, April 11 and 27.

Since March 2024, Russia has carried out four massive strikes on Ukraine's energy system, knocking out up to 8 GW of electricity generation capacity. The previous mass attack took place on April 27, when the Russians launched 34 missiles (21 were shot down).
