Quote from Fedoruk: "A missile attack on the Bucha hromada (a hromada is an administrative unit designating a town, village or several villages and their adjacent territories – ed.): the blast wave left houses in Babyntsi and Vorzel settlements without roofs and windows. Some of the buildings have their supporting structures damaged. In total, about four dozen houses were damaged. An enemy missile was shot down outside the settlement, so a crater was the only consequence. Relevant services are working there."


Details: The mayor added that the missile was shot down near the village of Buda-Babynetska.

No one was injured in the attack.


At the same time, the head of the OMA added that thanks to the work of the air defence forces, no hits to residential and critical infrastructure were recorded.


According to him, 7 private houses, several outbuildings and a car were damaged as a result of the falling missile debris. Windows were smashed, and facades and roofs were damaged.


Kravchenko promised that the OMA, together with the hromadas, would provide the residents of the damaged houses with all the necessary assistance.
