On the night of 6 February, Russian forces conducted two missile strikes on the small town of Zolochiv in Kharkiv Oblast, targeting a hotel, the Prosecutor Office of Kharkiv Oblast reported.

Since the onset of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, authorities have documented over 18,170 instances of war crimes by Russian military personnel within Kharkiv Oblast, according to Volodymyr Tymoshko, Head of Kharkiv Oblast Police Office.

The attack led to the complete destruction of the hotel, resulting in the tragic death of a two-month-old baby boy, who was born on 4 December.

His 21-year-old mother sustained injuries, and two other women were also wounded.
