Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his video address, mentioned that in recent days, the Russians had been particularly harshly targeting the Kherson region.

"Artillery, guided bombs. Targeting houses, farms, ordinary shops, and infrastructure. It's a deliberate terror of the occupier. My condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones," the president said.
