A rocket attack hit the predominantly ethnic Hungarian Ukrainian region of Transcarpathia on Tuesday, the Hungarian-language portal Transcarpathia.ma reported.

For the first time since the outbreak of the war, a rocket struck the area inhabited by Hungarians, with missiles never fired so close to the Hungarian border.

The attack targeted an infrastructure facility in a mountainous district of Transcarpathia, the Transcarpathian County Military Administration (OVA) said.

The news portal, citing Governor Viktor Mikita, writes that the authorities are working on the spot, and it is currently being clarified whether there are any casualties.

Mikita also wrote in his Facebook post that no one should post a photo or video from the site because the enemy could use it for more accurate attacks.
