According to Human Rights Commissioner of the Ukrainian Parliament Dmytro Lubinets, on 3 May, 17 civilians were killed and 26 injured in Russian shelling that targeted residential buildings, bus and railway stations in Kherson Oblast.

“Today, since early morning, Russian troops have been shelling the city of Kherson and other settlements in the region. 17 people have been killed! Preliminarily, 26 more have been injured. These were peaceful residents, whose fundamental right – the right to life – has been taken away by Russia!”, Lubinets emphasized.
