Two additional non-military individuals were fatally wounded in the city of Kherson as a result of Russian shelling.
According to local officials, two additional civilians, an 81-year-old woman and a 60-year-old man, were killed in southern Ukraine’s Kherson region on Thursday due to Russian shelling. This incident is the most recent in a series of fatalities caused by Russia’s attack on the region.
According to Governor Oleksandr Prokudin, the bombing was aimed at multiple villages and resulted in four injuries. The attacks also caused damage to various structures.
Two fatalities occurred following the death of one individual on Wednesday due to Russian attacks in the capital of the region, known as Kherson. Prokudin described the aftermath of the assault as “a scene of apocalyptic destruction.”
In November of last year, Ukraine regained control of Kherson following a period of nearly nine months under Russian rule. The region of Kherson holds significant importance in the ongoing conflict due to its location near the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed by Moscow in 2014 and is currently being used as a base for major logistical operations by Russia.
On Thursday, Russia warned that Ukraine’s actions were dangerous after a drone attack was carried out near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear station. Russia has had control of the plant since March 2022.
According to the Defense Ministry of Russia, nine drones belonging to Ukraine were shot down by Russian forces.
According to spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, Kyiv is engaging in unlawful and reckless actions that could incite conflict.
The International Atomic Energy Agency has frequently raised concerns about the possibility of a nuclear disaster occurring at the facility.
General Valery Zaluzhny stated that the ongoing counteroffensive by Ukraine, lasting over four months, has resulted in a stalemate between both parties.
According to The Economist, the current level of technology has brought us to a standstill, similar to the First World War. The speaker also predicts that there will not be any significant advances.
The description of the war was denied by Moscow, as Kremlin representative Dmitry Peskov stated, “Russia is consistently executing the targeted military operation and all objectives must be achieved.”
