“The girl suffered extensive trauma. She has blast injuries and traumatic brain injury. There is bruising to her brain. An open fracture of the left humerus bone. Multiple shrapnel wounds to her chest and neck,” wrote Prokudin on social media.

The regional leader also mentioned that earlier, three elderly women were injured due to the shelling of the village, with the Russian army’s fire hitting the area near the church. 

On October 8th, 16 people, including children, were injured in the Kherson Oblast as Russia fired rockets at residential areas, according to the Kherson Oblast Administration.
