According to Russian television, a Ukrainian drone strike resulted in the death of a journalist.
Ukrainian authorities reported that four individuals lost their lives and five others were injured in an attack from Russian forces in the southern district of Kherson on Thursday.
According to Ukrainian Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko, over 60 residential and infrastructure structures were harmed during the assault.
According to Andriy Yermak, the leader of Ukraine’s presidential office, it has been initially established that the shelling was conducted using cluster munitions. VOA was unable to confirm this information through independent means.
The Russian military withdrew from Kherson in late 2020, but continues to frequently attack the region from the eastern side of the Dnipro River.
On Thursday, Russian state TV reported that a journalist was killed due to injuries sustained in a drone strike carried out by Ukraine in the Zaporizhzhia region of southern Ukraine, which is currently under Russian occupation.
A day after the Russian defense ministry reported that he was injured while working in Zaporizhzhia, the Russian network announced the passing of Boris Maksudov.
During his evening speech on Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy mentioned the provision of military support from allies, specifically mentioning assistance for their air defense systems.
Zelenskyy stated that the assistance would enhance the defense of Ukraine’s urban areas against Russian assaults, and that the country’s aerial defense is continuously strengthening each month.
