The situation in the Kherson region

Following the Ukrainian military's reclaiming of the right bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, Russian-backed terrorists have been conducting daily attacks in the region, including in the city of Kherson. These attacks involve the use of heavy weaponry and aviation.

Indeed, today, Russian forces launched an attack from a tank on a residential building in Kozatske, Kherson region. As a result of the shelling, a woman tragically lost her life. The ongoing conflict and security situation in the region continue to pose significant risks to the local population.
