At least four people were killed and five were injured after a Russian missile struck a residential area in the Southern Ukrainian city of Kherson the local military administration reported on Tuesday. Video footage shared by the Ukrainian military show damaged houses and a body on the ground. 

Some of the fiercest fighting in recent months has been in eastern areas of Ukraine where Russia seeks control over all four of the provinces it annexed last September after “referendums” in the regions on whether to become part of Russia widely dismissed as a sham by Ukraine and the west.

Ukrainian officials said that Russian forces have deployed additional troops and equipment including modern T90 tanks in those areas.
