Shelling of Kherson and the region

After the de-occupation of the right bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, Russians have been shelling the city almost daily from the river's opposite bank. Occupants use heavy weaponry and aviation for these attacks.

For instance, on August 9, the enemy shelled Kherson with artillery. A kindergarten was hit, resulting in one person being injured.

Yesterday, Russian occupiers shelled Bilozerka in the Kherson region with artillery. Six people were injured.

This morning, Russian forces once again attacked the Kherson region. This time, the shelling targeted the village of Komyshany and Beryslav.
