“Russian occupiers opened fire on the Kherson region 71 times. They struck with artillery, multiple launch rocket systems and mortars. The enemy attacked the regional center 41 times. Downtown Kherson came under extensive enemy fire: civilians were killed and buildings destroyed. The enemy shelling also affected industrial premises, health facilities, detached houses and apartment blocks,” Yanushevych wrote.
Sixteen people have been killed in the Kherson region over the past day, including three employees of the Ukrainian State Emergency Service, who were involved in demining efforts in the Beryslav district. Sixty-four people received injuries of various severity levels.
