On Sunday, a Ukrainian missile attack on Sevastopol in the Russian-annexed Crimea peninsula killed two people, including a two-year-old child, and wounded 22, according to the city’s Moscow-appointed governor. Sevastopol, a Black Sea port city and naval base on the Crimean peninsula annexed by Russia in 2014, faces regular fire from Ukraine, but the casualties from Sunday’s attack were unusually high.

“According to provisional information, today’s attack by Ukraine’s armed forces on Sevastopol killed 2 peaceful residents, one of them a 2-year-old child,” Sevastopol governor Mikhail Razvozhayev wrote on Telegram.

The governor stated that Ukraine had launched five missiles, which Russian air defenses intercepted over the sea. However, fragments fell onto the shore area, injuring people with pieces of shrapnel. Razvozhayev mentioned that the missile fragments struck shore areas in the north of the city, causing a house and woodland to catch fire.

Earlier on Sunday, the governor stated that a drone launched by Ukraine on Russia’s southern Belgorod region killed a man. Belgorod governor Vyacheslav Gladkov reported that three Ukrainian attack drones struck the town of Graivoron, located a few kilometers from the border with Ukraine, with one drone hitting a car park near a multi-story block of flats.

“A peaceful civilian was killed. The man died from his wounds at the spot,” Gladkov wrote on Telegram, while three were wounded.
