Russian strikes on the central Ukrainian region of Kyrovograd leave five people dead and wound more than two dozen others, the region’s governor says.

“Twenty-five people have been transferred to medical facilities and are receiving treatment. Five are dead,” governor Andriy Raikovich says in a video on his social media.

He adds that the strikes hit two hangars at around 12:20 (0920 GMT).

The Interfax-Ukraine news agency quotes Raikovich as saying that there are 12 servicemen among the wounded.
