A Russian missile shot down by Ukrainian air defenses fell on a village in northern Moldova on October 31, causing minor damage but no injuries, the Moldovan Interior Ministry said.

The windows of several homes in Naslavcea were smashed when the missile landed at the northern end of the village, the ministry said in a statement.

Naslavcea lies on the border with Ukraine in Moldova’s north.

Authorities temporarily closed down several border crossings in the region “for security reasons,” the ministry said.

Russia fired dozens of missiles at Ukraine on October 31, pounding energy facilities, causing blackouts, and cutting off water supplies in some parts of the country, Ukrainian officials said.
