A Russian strike on the city of Tchortkiv, in western Ukraine largely spared from the violence , injured at least 22 people, including civilians, on Saturday June 11, and partially destroyed a military site, a local official said Sunday.

“Yesterday at 9:46 p.m. local time (8:46 p.m. French time), Chortkiv was hit by four missiles, all fired from the Black Sea,” regional governor Volodymyr Trouch said in a press conference broadcast on Facebook, adding that “there were 22 wounded, all hospitalized.” Among the victims, “there are seven women and a 12-year-old child”, continued the governor.

According to Volodymyr Trouch, also head of the administration of the Ternopil region, on which Chortkiv depends, “a military installation was partially destroyed” in the strike, “and residential homes were damaged”.

Western Ukraine largely untouched since invasion began

Chortkiv, which had just under 3,000 inhabitants before the Russian invasion, is located 140 km north of the border with Romania and 200 km south-east of Lviv, a large city in the western Ukraine.

Unlike the east and south of the country, which have been badly affected by the fighting between Ukrainian and Russian armies for three and a half months, the West has only very sporadically been the target of strikes by Moscow troops, which notably target military installations there receiving Western weapons.
