The situation in the Kherson region

The right-bank part of the Kherson region was liberated from Russian occupiers almost a year ago. After their retreat, the aggressors continue to shell the Kherson region daily with heavy weaponry and drop guided bombs on the civilian population.

Today, on October 20, Russian occupiers conducted an airstrike on Beryslav. A woman was killed as a result of the attack.
