Preliminary data indicates that the people in the house were employed by a company to guard irrigation units near the village. There was also a girl under 18 there.

Their bodies were buried near the scene, and the girl’s parents buried her in the local cemetery, the prosecutor’s office said.

Ukrainian troops entered the South-Ukrainian regional capital of Kherson on 11 November after Russia retreated from the west bank of Kherson Oblast in a major victory for Ukraine. Prosecutors are investigating war crimes committed by the Russians in the region.
