"One of the aircraft munitions hit a high-rise building. Another strike hit the garages near another multi-apartment building. At least 15 garages went on fire. Twenty people sustained injuries and acute stress reaction. There are six men, eleven women and three children, including two girls, 12 and 8, and a boy, 12, among them," the press service of Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor's Office said.
