Twenty minutes later, the occupiers attacked the village again. This time, an explosive device was dropped from a drone. Two men, aged 58 and 46, sustained injuries of moderate severity. They are currently hospitalized.

Shelling in the Kherson region

Part of the Kherson region has remained occupied by Russian forces since February 2022. Consequently, Kherson and the settlements located along the front line are continuously shelled.

For example, on September 3rd, Russian occupiers once again shelled the Kherson region. This time, they targeted residential buildings in Bilozerka. A family was hit during the shelling - the 35-year-old head of the family was killed, while his 36-year-old wife and 9-year-old daughter were injured.

The next day, Russians shelled the town of Sonyachne in the Kherson community. During the attack, an 11-year-old boy was injured.

On Tuesday, September 5th, the occupiers shelled the village of Ivanivka in the Kherson region. Two women who were in their own yards at the time were injured.
