Russian troops struck again in the Kherson region. They used a drone to attack a funeral car at a cemetery in Kherson district: it happened around 12 p.m. on October 11.
Three employees of the funeral service who were near the vehicle were injured, one of them needed hospitalization. Details were provided by the Kherson Regional Prosecutor's Office.
The prosecutor's office announced the launch of a pre-trial investigation into another violation of the laws and rules of warfare by Russian troops: proceedings have been opened under Part 1 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
"According to the investigation, on October 11, at about 11:40 a.m., Russian military targeted a funeral service vehicle at a cemetery located in the Kherson district with an unmanned aerial vehicle. The explosion injured three employees of the funeral service who were near the special vehicle. One of them was hospitalized," the official statement said.
Prosecutors of Kherson region together with investigators of the National Police are currently working at the site of the shelling, documenting another war crime of the Russian occupiers.
Earlier, it became known that the SBU exposed two traitors who pointed an Iskander at the village of Groza in Kharkiv region, where a Russian missile destroyed a cafe near Kupiansk on October 5. The Russian strike was corrected by two local brothers who had joined the occupiers and knew full well that civilians had gathered in the cafe.
The café was hosting a wake for a soldier, and the villagers of the deceased, including children, gathered to honor his memory.
Entire families died under the rubble of the cafe, including the family of the soldier whose memory people had gathered to honor. In total, 55 civilians were killed on October 11.
There were no active military personnel in the cafe, but this did not prevent Russia from claiming the destruction of another "NATO base": Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said at a Security Council meeting that Russia had killed "many Ukrainian neo-Nazis" with a missile strike on the village of Groza.
