Shelling of Kherson

Today Prokudin also warned that Russian forces might shell the railway station in Kherson in the near future. He asked people not to leave their homes without reason.

It is not the first time Russia shelled a humanitarian hub in Ukraine, knowing that there may be people inside. On July 10, in Orikhove, Zaporizhzhia region, Russians dropped two guided aviation bombs on the area where humanitarian aid was being distributed. Seven people were killed, and 13 were injured.
