Four police officers were killed and 18 more injured in Tuesday’s attack on a government building in occupied Yuvileine in Ukraine’s Kherson region, reports TASS. Law enforcement in the annexed region said five of the wounded were hospitalized with severe injuries.

The National Resistance Center (created by Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces), wrote that on November 28, Ukrainian troops hit a building in Yuvileine where Russian-appointed officials were meeting. The National Resistance Center says five “high-ranking officials” were killed in the strike.

According to the Astra Telegram channel, most police officers who worked in the building came from Russia, although some were former Ukrainian police who switched sides. The deputy chief and chief of logistics are reported to be among the dead.

Russian-appointed authorities of the annexed Kherson region and the Russian Defense Ministry did not comment on these statements.
