Two people were wounded in the village of Bilyaivka, Kherson region, as a result of Russian aggression

Oleksandr Tolokonnikov, head of the press office of the Kherson Regional Military Administration, reported the information on Espreso TV.

"On Monday, February 12, two local residents were injured after coming into contact with a mine. One of the individuals is in critical condition and has been hospitalized followed by a leg amputation. The other man sustained moderate injuries, including partial amputation of his toes," said the head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration press office.

According to the regional military administration, the man was collecting firewood in a forest strip and came across explosives left by the Russian army. As a result of the detonation, the victim sustained an explosive injury and lost part of his leg.

Another victim is a 62-year-old man who was diagnosed with an explosive injury and traumatic amputation of his toes. 

According to the regional prosecutor's office, it happened around 2:30 pm. One of the men was collecting brushwood near a tractor brigade and came across an explosive device that detonated. Another man rushed to his aid, but also stepped on an explosive device. 

"Preliminarily, the men stepped on a PFM-1 (Lepestok - ed.) anti-personnel mine. Under the procedural supervision of the Beryslav District Prosecutor's Office of the Kherson region, a pre-trial investigation into the violation of the laws and customs of war (Part 1 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine) has been initiated. Priority investigative actions are underway with the participation of prosecutors and police officers," the statement said.

  • According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the Russian army attacked Kherson with artillery on February 12. Three settlements in the Kherson region came under artillery fire. Russian troops launched air strikes near 3 more settlements and MLRS attacks near 4 settlements in the Kherson region.
