Russian forces once again shelled Kherson on Thursday, October 5th. Two people were killed, including a municipal service worker.

Sources for the material included the Telegram channel of the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak, the Telegram channel of the head of Kherson Regional Military Administration, Roman Mrochko, and the Telegram channel of the head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration, Oleksandr Prokudin.

"The Russians shelled Kherson. Preliminarily, two people were killed," said Andriy Yermak, the head of the President's Office.

According to him, a communal worker was trimming trees among the victims.

Roman Mrochko, the head of Kherson Regional Military Administration, added that the occupiers targeted residential neighborhoods in the city center of Kherson. The victims were a man and a woman aged approximately 50-55.

There is also a wounded person due to the shelling.

"Another 54-year-old resident of Kherson was diagnosed with minor injuries to his hands and legs by doctors. Medical assistance was provided to the victim on-site," said Oleksandr Prokudin.

Shelling of Kherson

From Thursday morning, October 5th, explosions were heard in Kherson. Occupiers shelled the city from the left bank of the region, which remains temporarily occupied territory captured by Russian forces.

Shelling the liberated settlements of the Kherson region for Russia is a common practice. In recent weeks, shelling has intensified. In addition to "popular" artillery and aerial bombs, occupiers have used rockets in their attacks. In connection with this, as the Kherson Regional Military Administration advised, alarm signals should not be ignored.
