Russian missiles struck an industrial area in the city of Kremenchuk, located in central Ukraine, this Saturday.

This was reported by Filip Pronin, the governor of the Poltava region, where Kremenchuk is situated, according to Reuters.

The governor announced on the messaging service Telegram that two Russian ballistic missiles hit a target in the city.

He also stated that no casualties occurred during the incident.

Images from the site shared on social media show firefighters extinguishing a fire, as reported by Reuters.

Further south, in the Zaporizhzhia region, the local governor, Yuriy Malashko, reported that a location with infrastructure was hit in a drone attack.

Rescue services are at the site, but the governor did not provide further details on injuries or fatalities.

According to the German news agency dpa, officials also reported attacks in the Kharkiv region in northeastern Ukraine.

By late Saturday evening, there was no information about the extent of the attack.

Earlier Saturday, the Ukrainian military reported that the Russian army has intensified its efforts to conquer Ukrainian cities and villages.

"The occupying forces have significantly increased the number of attacks and assaults - for the second day in a row, the enemy carried out 50 combat operations," said Brigadier General Oleksandr Tarnavskyj on Telegram on Saturday.

Tarnavskyj, responsible for the front in southern and southeastern Ukraine, mentioned that the number of air strikes has also increased.

He immediately referred to the southern part of the Donetsk region.

The Russian forces launched a new offensive in the area last fall, attempting to capture the town of Avdiivka, which borders the large city of Donetsk, controlled by Russian forces since 2014.
