On the morning of February 22, the Russians fired on the Kherson region. A resident was killed as a result of the Russian invaders' attack on the private sector, according to the Kherson Regional Prosecutor's Office.

"On the morning of February 22, Russian troops fired on the village of Lvov, Beryslav district. They had previously attacked with artillery," the statement says.

A 59-year-old man was killed as a result of a Russian shell hitting a private house.

"Prosecutors are taking all possible and appropriate measures to record the war crimes of the Russian Federation against the civilian population of the region," the Prosecutor's Office summarizes.

Situation in Kherson and region

In the fall of 2022, Ukrainian defenders launched a successful counteroffensive in the south of our country. The Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to liberate the right-bank part of the Kherson region from the Russian occupation forces.

In particular, Kherson returned to Ukrainian control. This was one of the regional centers occupied by the Russians in February-March 2022.

Currently, Kherson and the region are under constant Russian shelling. The occupiers are attacking residential areas with heavy weapons and drones.

Situation in Kherson direction as of February 22

In the Kherson direction, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to hold their positions and repel attacks by Russian occupation forces. Despite significant losses, the enemy continues to try to drive our units from their positions.

Thus, over the past day, Russian troops made four attempts to storm the positions of our troops on the left bank of the Dnipro River.

At the same time, Ukrainian soldiers continue to actively inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the Russian occupation forces, depleting the enemy along the entire front line.
