Russian drone strike kills two farm workers in Kupiansk district

On 20 February, a Russian “kamikaze” drone struck a civilian car in the Kupiansk district of Kharkiv Oblast, resulting in the deaths of two civilians, Oleh Syniehubov, Head of Kharkiv Oblast Military Administration, reported via Telegram.

Recently, Russian forces have intensified missile, airstrikes, and drone attacks on populated areas of Kharkiv Oblast amid daily attempts to conduct offensive operations in the Kupiansk direction to seize territories liberated by Ukrainian defenders in September 2022.

He detailed that around 16:50, in the village of Petropavlivka within the Kupiansk district, the drone targeted a civilian vehicle. The attack claimed the lives of a 38-year-old civilian driver and a 50-year-old civilian man at the scene, while a 48-year-old woman sustained injuries and was transported to a medical facility for treatment.
