Aged three to 17, the children are all in serious condition, Mr Kim wrote on Telegram that a girl lost an eye in the attack.
Voznesensk is about 20 kilometers as the crow flies from the Ukrainian nuclear power plant in Privdennoukrainsk and some 70 kilometers from Mykolaiv.
The Mykolaiv region regularly comes under heavy Russian bombardment.
The strike hit a building residential and several houses in Voznesensk, which has around 30,000 inhabitants, the state emergency service said on Facebook, posting images of a gutted building. /p>
The Mykolaiv region, which regularly suffers heavy Russian bombardment, is close to that of Kherson, almost entirely occupied by Russian troops since Moscow launched its attack on Ukraine at the end of February.
The terrorist country called Russia hit a residential building, the head of the Ukrainian presidential administration Andriy Yermak denounced on Telegram.
Our task is to ensure that not only the current generation of Russians are held accountable, but also their children and grandchildren. Russia will pay for everything, he added.
