At least two people were killed and 10 were injured after a Russian S-300 missile struck a local history museum in Kupyansk, Kharkiv Oblast, on Tuesday, April 25, according to Ukrainian officials.

Kharkiv Governor Oleh Synyehubov said the bodies of two women were found in the rubble. At least one of the victims was an employee of the museum, said President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Zelensky said Russia was “doing everything” to destroy Ukraine. “Our history, our culture, our people. Killing Ukrainians with absolutely barbaric methods,” he said.

Synyehubov said there were no military sites near the museum and accused Russia was deliberately targeting and terrorizing civilians.
