Airwars assessment

Between one and four civilians, including a child, a woman, and two men, were killed and at least two others, including a woman and up to two children, were injured by alleged Russian shelling of Lysa Hora in Kholodnogirskyi district on April 11st, 2022.

Huyovy_kharkiv Telegram reported one civilian death and two injured while Kharkiv Life channel specified that two civilians were killed, a teenager and a mother of two, and among the wounded is another woman and children who were playing in the yard, with toys still lying near the site of the explosion.

Suspilne News provided additional details on the civilians affected, including a 12 year old boy and 35 year old woman who were killed and a four year old who sustained shrapnel wounds. The 12 year old boy’s grandmother was injured as well, but the source does not specify if the grandmother was injured in this attack or another attack. A neighbour told Suspilne that “When I ran, he (12 year old) was lying there. There were no chances. His whole head was cut there.” The same neighbor’s daughter and nine year old grandson were injured in the same attack, and the neighbor told Suspilne that his grandson “is not stable, but he will live.”

A local resident told Suspilne News that when the 35 year old died, her two daughters were in the house: “They came from the store, I went into the house, and she was talking on the phone, I didn’t have time to go into the house. If, perhaps, she had come a minute earlier, she would have had time… Two children were left without their mother.”

Tipichnoe_xtz telegram channel reported that in addition to the 13 year old who was killed, two of the victims were men killed by shrapnel.

The attack occurred in a private area of Kharkiv, Kholodnaya Gora, hitting a 16th story building and the children playing in the streets. Suspilne News also identified battered and burned cars as well as gutted houses as resulting from the shelling.

The suspected attacker is alleged to be Russia, as reported by most of the sources including Suspilne News and Kharkiv Life although responsibility has not been accepted explicitly.

This incident has reference to ACLED code UKR55595.

The local time of the incident is unknown.

At approximately 4:00pm on April 12 2022, in Baryinkove, Izyum district, confirmed shelling by Russian Federation armed forces reportedly killed 3 civilians including a 16-year-old girl and injured a 20-year-old man. Residential buildings were also reportedly damaged and destroyed.

A statement from the press service of the Kharkiv Prosecutor’s Office established these details which were widely reported by local news sources and human rights groups. The Prosecutor’s Office alongside the SBU Directorate in Kharkiv are conducting a pre-trial investigation “into the fact of violation of the laws and customs of war, combined with intentional murder.”

A statement on the day of the shelling by the Mayor of Baryinkove, Oleksandr Balo, which was reported in Suspilne Media News, indicated that the 16-year-old girl had “received severe chest injuries and that first aid had been provided on the scene before she was transported.” Izvestia Kharkov News added that her injuries were caused by shrapnel but also reported that the girl had later died.
