Shelling has continued to rain on northeastern Ukraine overnight.
Oleg Sinegubov, the governor of the Kharkiv region, said settlements along the “border with the Russian Federation” were struck on Friday.
He said: “The Kupyan district suffers the most from shelling.”
Mr Sinegubov added that five people had been injured in Kupyan in the last 24 hours, including two sisters aged 10 and 17.
“A 45-year-old man was injured in the Chuguyiv district,” he said. “He was blown up by a mine while picking mushrooms.
“A similar accident happened to a 24-year-old resident of Izyum district, who was also picking mushrooms.
“I remind everyone once again that visiting the forests is now very dangerous due to the large number of mines and unexploded ammunition.
“Only in the past day, the State Emergency Service has defused 578 explosive objects in the region.”
