During the second reported Russian shelling of the village of Derhachi on May 12th, two medics were injured.
Kharkiv Today reported that a total of two civilians were killed and four were wounded, including two medics. Two civilian deaths and two injuries were accounted for in RUK0230 as occurring during the first shelling of the day, therefore this incident corresponds to the two medics injured.
Kharkiv Today also reported on infrastructure that was damaged by the shelling: ” A civil registry office, the catering unit of the district hospital, part of the polyclinic along with the x-ray room were destroyed and the building of the ambulance department was damaged by the blast wave. Shells destroyed the building of the House of Culture, where the humanitarian aid distribution centre was located.” It is unclear whether this damage occurred in the first (RUK0230) or second shelling during the day.
Due to the shelling Dergachyovo city council announced that there would be no humanitarian aid distribution: “Tonight the occupants have completed their work and destroyed the Dergachy culture house, and at the same time our humanitarian headquarters, with a missile strike. In this regard, there will be no distribution of humanitarian aid today.” In a video posted by Truexa News UA, the damage to the humanitarian aid center was described as “The roof was smashed, a hole was punched in the concrete floor, three floors were destroyed.”
No Russian state-run sources were found related to this incident.
