“Another enemy missile attack. Stay in shelters!” Oleksandr Starukh, governor of the Zaporizhzhia region, said on the Telegram messaging app. He later told Ukrainian television that one woman was killed in the helling. Twelve people were wounded, including a three-year-old child. Five were still in the rubble, he added. The Kremlin on Thursday denied reports that 7,00,000 Russians have fled the country since Moscow announced a mobilisation drive.
