The Security Service of Ukraine (DSNS) reports Russian attacks in Kherson Oblast, with Russia’s forces launching 536 projectiles of various types in the past 24 hours towards recently de-occupied areas.

Amid the barrages, four fires were recorded. In the city of Kherson, a fire engulfed an administrative building, a private car, as well as utility structures and a garage. Another fire erupted in a garage facility in the Daryivska community.

The firefighters of Kherson, along with the local firefighting team from the village of Vysokе, successfully contained the blazes.

Russia-operated unmanned aerial vehicles caused extensive damage, nearly obliterating an administrative building, damaging two multi-story residences, and leaving seven vehicles in ruins. The attack also triggered a fire at the site.
