A two-month-old boy was killed as a result of a Russian missile attack on a hotel in the town of Zołochiv, northwest of Kharkov, said the head of the Kharkiv Oblast administration, Oleh Synehubov. The child’s mother was seriously injured.

“As a result of two attacks by the occupiers using S-300 missiles, a three-story hotel was ruined. Rescuers pulled out the body of a two-month-old baby boy, born on December 4, 2023, from under the rubble,” Oleg Synehubov, the head of the Kharkiv Oblast administration, said in a Tuesday entry on the Telegram channel.

Three women, aged 21, 28 and 39, were injured. Among them is the child’s mother. Her condition is serious.

Three rooms for guests

The hotel’s owner, Anatoly Tilnov, told Ukrainian TV Suspilne that there were three rooms for guests on the third floor of the building, and all of them were occupied at the time of the attack.

– I woke up at 2:20 a.m. (1:20 a.m. in Poland), after the first explosion, I looked out the window, and after a while there was a second explosion. I didn’t think it went there. It wasn’t very noisy, Tinow said.

The man said that a community center had recently been established in the ruined building: furniture had been brought there on the eve of the attack. There was also a shop on the ground floor of the building.

In the night attack in Zołochiv, seven private houses, 19 infrastructure facilities, two administrative buildings and at least five cars were damaged.

The BBC reminds that Russian attacks on the Kharkiv Oblast have intensified since the end of 2023.

Zołochiv is located only 20 km from the border with Russia.

At the end of December last year, a Russian Iskander missile struck hotel in the center of Kharkov. The Ministry of Defense in Moscow then stated that during the shelling of the city “representatives of Ukrainian military intelligence and the Armed Forces of Ukraine who took part in planning and implementing the attack on Belgorod” were destroyed.
