According to the Ukrainian military command, on 1 July 2022, three Tu-22M3 aeroplanes of the Russian Air Force started their flight from Volgograd Region towards Crimea, and 1.2 thousand kilometres later they fired three Kh-22 missiles (designed to hit aircraft carriers) towards the resort settlement of Serhiyivka in the direction of Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy district.
One missile hit a nine-storey residential building, completely destroying one entryway. The nine-storey residential building was built according to a Czech design in the 1970s. More than 150 people lived in the building. A Russian missile struck the basement and killed all the occupants of the entrance from the first to the fourth floor. Among the 106 flats in the building, 105 were destroyed. The fire from the apartment building spread to an attached shop.
Two other rockets hit a recreation centre in the Belgorod-Dnistrovsky district. The facility, which was owned by the Moldovan Ministry of Health, was providing medical rehabilitation for children with health problems.
All houses within a radius of up to two kilometres from the impact site had their windows blown out.
This rocket attack is classified by international organisations as a serious war crime.
