Russian strike kills one, injures eight in Ukraine's Mykolaiv region

(Reuters) - A Russian missile strike on Ukraine's southern Mykolaiv region on Wednesday killed one person and injured eight more, the regional governor said.

Vitaliy Kim said on Telegram that a civilian facility was struck in the town of Voznesensk.

A local mayor was among the injured, he added.

Ahead of the strike, Ukraine's air force announced an air raid alert for the southern regions due to Russian aviation activity.
