Russian missiles kill 3 in central Ukraine

At least three people have been killed after 13 Russian missiles hit a military airfield and railway infrastructure in Ukraine's central Kirovohrad region, the local governor says.

Speaking on television, Andriy Raikovych said two security guards at an electricity substation had been killed.

A Ukrainian soldier had also been killed and nine others wounded, he said.

Raikovych said the strikes had disrupted the electricity grid and one district of the regional capital Kropyvnytskyi, about 300km southeast of Kyiv, had been left without power as a result.
