Russian airstrikes unleash over 50 glide bombs on Kherson Oblast in a single day

On 4 November, the Russian military conducted nine airstrikes using more than 50 glide bombs in Kherson Oblast, Ukraine, according to the press service of the Southern Defense Forces.

Oleksandr Prokudin, the head of Kherson Oblast Military Administration, reported that one of the guided air bombs destroyed a school in the Dariyivska community overnight. He released a video showing the demolished building. 

Since there were no people in the school, there were no casualties. However, a fire ignited during the Russian aviation attack, which firefighters later extinguished.

“Investigators from the National Police have been working at the scene since morning, documenting yet another crime by the occupiers. In addition to the school, six private homes have been damaged. Fortunately, there were no casualties,” Interior Minister of Ukraine Ihor Klymenko wrote on Telegram.
