At least three people have died and several more have been injured this Monday due to new attacks launched by Russian forces against several Ukrainian regions, including Kherson and Kharkiv, where fatalities have been registered so far.

In Kherson, the night has been described as “very difficult” by the country’s authorities. The governor of the area, Oleksander Prokudin, has reported the death of one person, a 59 year old woman, and explained that the injured included two members of the rescue teams and a 93-year-old woman. The attack occurred shortly after midnight, according to the Ukrinform portal.

Prokudin has indicated that the attacks have targeted several residential areas in the center of the city of the same name, according to information released through his Telegram channel. The authorities estimate that the Russian attacks against the area already amount to about thirty during the last day.

Another dramatic night in Kherson. Russian troops continue to attack its residents in the city center,” the governor wrote.

For his part, the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andri Yermak, has reported that two people have died and another three have been injured as a consequence of new Russian bombardments on the town of Kupiansk, in Kharkiv.

The attack occurred in Kucherivkaa village in the region, and hit a house.

On Sunday, President Volodimir Zelensky’s department had reported two other civilians killed and four wounded when a Russian projectile hit a blood transfusion center in another village in that region, Kruhlyakivka, the night before.

Throughout Sunday there were successive explosions both over the city of Kharkiv and in the region as a whole, in which at least one other fatality occurred.

The Ukrainian Army once again took control of some areas of Kherson and its surroundings last November after being occupied by Russian troops in the framework of the invasion that began a year and a half ago.
