There was no military, a fellow villager was farewelled: the police revealed the details of the RF strike on a cafe near Kupiansk
At the time of the Russian cafe shop in the village of Hroza, Kharkiv region, there were about 60 people there. People gathered to commemorate a buried resident of the village. There were no soldiers there.
The occupation army launched a missile attack on the building on October 5. The head of the Kharkiv regional police, Volodymyr Tymoshko, announced this on the department's Telegram channel. He emphasized, "Russia has committed a bloody crime against civilians".
As of 17:00, there are 51 dead (including one child) and seven wounded (including one child).
"Not a single soldier was there, just residents of the village, where 330 people lived until that day! And who says that this is not genocide, who says that Russians are people, who says that they are a people, not a horde? Show the relatives of the victims who is saying this nonsense!" Tymoshko said emotionally.
The Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Ihor Klymenko, who previously headed the National Police, said that a six-year-old child (according to his information, it was a girl) was a victim of the occupiers' crime.
As of 16:00, the rubble was still being cleared, as well as the identification of the victims. "A mobile forensic laboratory is working at the scene of the tragedy," Klymenko said.
Klymenko told United News that the enemy attack took place at 13:24 on Thursday.
Seven people were seriously wounded. "All of them are being operated," the minister said in the news release.
He noted that at least one person from almost every family in the village attended the memorial dinner.
As for the weapons used by the Russian Armed Forces, there was no accurate information (as of 5 p.m.), experts were establishing all the details. Klymenko said that it was "definitely a heavy missile or, possibly, a guided aircraft missile/bomb or a high-explosive bomb."
The Interior Minister promised that the type of weapon would be clarified later. The explosion, he said, destroyed the building. Seven people who were injured were not inside the cafe, but nearby, at a distance of 50 meters or more.
A little later, it was suggested that the Russian military might have used Iskander to strike the village.
