A Ukrainian governor said on Sunday his region had been hit 44 times by Russian forces earlier in the day, including a school and a kindergarten.

Sumy Oblast governor Dmytro Zhyvytsky said areas attacked in his region included the communities of Bilopillia, Khotin, Seredyna-Buda and Krasnopillia. This included strikes.

Zhyvytsky said Russia used mines and drone explosives in Krasnopillia, while Bilopillia was hit by mortars 15 times, including damage to a school. A kindergarten and a school stadium in the Khotin community were also damaged in other attacks.

There were no reports of casualties, the Kiev independent newspaper.

The Sumy Oblast, which is located in the northeast of Ukraine and along the Russian border, is usually under regular fire.

Russia continues attacks in Ukraine after 326 days of war and more than 116,000 Russian casualties from the war. Russia on Saturday attacked the central city of Dnipro with Kh-22 missiles that destroyed high-rise apartment buildings in the city, killing at least 30 and injuring nearly 80 others.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky released a video on Saturday showing a nine-story apartment in Dnipro reduced to rubble, killing at least five people.

“Eternal memory of all whose lives were taken by [Russian] terror! The world must stop evil. Clearing debris in Dnipro continues. All services work. We fight for every person, every life. We find everyone involved in terror. Everyone will bear responsibility. Extremely,” wrote Zelensky.

The Attorney General’s Office in Ukraine said it was Russia’s 52nd Guards Bomber Aviation Regiment.

“According to preliminary information, the Kh-22 missile was used. This type of missile leads to the greatest human casualties, because the missile is extremely inaccurate, has a huge deviation. Therefore, the use of such weapons for targets in densely populated areas is clearly a war crime,” the Ukraine office said in a Telegram post. “This type of missile was used in Sergiivka and Kremenchuk. It can be launched by a single Russian unit – the 52nd Guards Bomber Aviation Regiment.”

The Kh-22 missiles were largely responsible for massive destruction and deaths Saturday in Dnipro, located in disputed eastern Ukraine, where Russia has already occupied many areas and is fighting to save that area.

The city of Dnipro has declared a three-day mourning period in honor of the 29 people killed in Saturday’s rocket attacks.

The Attorney General’s Office called Saturday’s attacks a crime against humanity because it was nowhere near a military facility.

“This tragedy is not just a war crime, it is a crime against humanity. A large-scale murder of civilians in Ukraine,” the agency said. “Every important piece of evidence will be documented. The investigation and prosecutors will bring to justice and bring to justice both those who launched the missiles directly and their commanders who gave this criminal order. The entire Russian military leadership.”

On Saturday night, Ukraine stated that it does not have enough equipment to shoot down missiles such as the Kh-22 or X-22 used in Dnipro.
