Following the deoccupation of the right bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, the Russians have been regularly shelling the region, particularly Kherson, from the opposite bank of the river, mostly using heavy weaponry and aviation.

Just yesterday, on August 4, Russian aviation dropped two guided bombs on the village of Odradokamianka, injuring a 50-year-old man.
