According to him, the 24-year-old wounded man has severe injuries to his arms and legs. The 68-year-old employee of the utility company was diagnosed with an eye injury and concussion.

The nearby south-Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv was also shelled at around 4:00; an infrastructure facility on the outskirts of the town was hit, according to city mayor Senkevych. Dry grass caught fire there, and the fire was extinguished at 06:45.

Since its liberation by the Ukrainian Army in November 2022, Kherson is constantly under shelling from the Russian troops situated just across the river. Yesterday’s strikes killed three women, and the day before that, one man was killed and another injured.
