Additionally, houses, cars, and gas distribution networks were damaged due to the Russian attack. Unexploded shells were safely handled and disposed of by rescue personnel.

The city of Stanislav also came under fire, with Russian troops using artillery. Investigations are ongoing to assess the extent of the damage caused by this attack.

In addition, the Russian attack damaged houses, cars, and gas distribution networks. Some of the shells did not explode, so they had to be removed by rescuers. The head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration released footage of the aftermath of the night attack on Kherson.

"Multi-storey buildings, private houses, cars in the parking lot and under houses, shells sticking out of the ground. This is how the streets of Kherson look right now," he wrote.

In the morning, at about 08:15 am, the Russian military launched an air strike with guided bombs on the Beryslav community, Kherson region. This was reported by the Kherson Regional Prosecutor's Office. 

As a result of the shelling, a man who was in an apartment was injured. He was hospitalized. 

Also, around 10:40 am, Russian troops fired on a suburban village of Kherson. Three women who were on the street sustained shrapnel wounds. 

Private houses were damaged.

  • Furthermore, the night before, Russian forces dropped a guided aerial bomb on the village of Kostyrka, Kherson region, resulting in an injury to a man.
