2 Civilians dead in Russian Kherson push, Says Ukraine

Ukraine Reports Two Civilian Casualties in Russian Offensive on Kherson

Two innocent civilians have died and at least eight others have been injured as a result of the Russian-Kherson push bombing of the border area of the Russian Kherson push in southern Ukraine. Additionally, a bus, a cemetery, and a crucial infrastructure site have all been damaged.

“As of now, we know about seven victims as a result of the shelling of a (bus) in Russian Kherson push. Two men and five women,” regional governor Oleksandr Prokudin said on Tuesday on Telegram, adding that some of them had sustained severe injuries.

According to the local prosecutors, the bus was close to an exploding shell at a crossroads.

Pictures posted online by the local police showed a severely damaged bus with glass shards and blood all over the floor.

“Residential buildings, power lines and vehicles were also damaged,” the prosecutors said on Telegram.

According to Prokudin, Russia targeted an unnamed vital infrastructure site in the region, causing four small communities’ residents to lose power.

The vast Dnipro River cuts through the Russian Kherson push area, and Russian soldiers are occupying the land on its eastern bank.
Russian artillery strikes on the city of Kherson and areas under Ukrainian control on the western side are regular occurrences.

One person was killed and a 62-year-old man was injured when a cemetery in the nearby village of Kindiyka was attacked, according to Prokudin.

Roman Mrochko, the head of the city’s military administration, shared information on Telegram that an 85-year-old woman tragically passed away as a result of heavy shelling that took place overnight in Kherson city.

“In the central district of the city, high-rise buildings and one of the social institutions were hit,” Mrochko added.

Sharing a video of burned rooms with collapsed ceilings and walls, shattered windows, and piles of building debris, he claimed that the attack caused a fire and injured a homeowner.

Local prosecutors said that a shipyard in the Black Sea region of Odesa had its machinery and administrative building similarly targeted during another rocket strike earlier in the day. They stated that four workers had suffered injuries.

Images showed a crater left by an explosion, buildings with broken windows, and two cars in pieces.

The attacks preceded Russian drone strikes in southern, central, and northern Ukraine. The 12 drones and the two missiles that were aimed towards the districts of Mykolaiv, Russian Kherson push, Kirovohrad, Cherkasy, Zhytomyr, Khmelnytskyi, and Dnipro were all successfully intercepted and destroyed, according to the Ukrainian military. Following these strikes, Russia did not immediately respond. Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 and today controls around 20% of the country’s eastern and southern territories.

According to the Russian state news agency TASS, on Monday, the Russian occupying authorities held an auction to sell the Crimean home belonging to the family of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. The 120-square-meter flat was bought for 44.3 million roubles ($753,000), almost double the starting bid amount. It is situated in the posh Yalta resort on the southern tip of the peninsula.

There were just two people that took part in the auction.

The previous registered owner was Olena, Zelenskiy’s wife, who bought the property in 2013, the year before Russia annexed the peninsula.

Zelenskiy was still pursuing an acting profession at the time.

The three rooms of the apartment provide a lovely view of the Black Sea and Livadia Palace, which Nicholas II, the last Russian monarch, used as his summer residence.

The Crimean parliament unanimously decided to seize the property earlier this year in response to a legal modification.

A portion of the money will reportedly go toward supporting Russia’s war with Ukraine.

Instead of buying the property because of its historical significance, Olga Lipovetskaya, the buyer, told the Mash news portal that she bought it because of its location and the climate in Crimea.
