Following Russian shelling in Kherson around 11 a.m. on 19 November, a three-year-old girl suffered severe injuries, as reported by Oleksandr Prokudin, the head of the Kherson military administration. The child is now in intensive care.

“The doctors diagnosed her with blast injuries, multiple shrapnel wounds, a penetrating chest injury, general concussion, closed head trauma, and lung contusions. There is also suspicion of shrapnel near the vascular bundle in her chest cavity,” Prokudin reported on Telegram.
