Kherson is being bombarded by Russian artillery daily as residents struggle to survive in stark contrast to scenes of jubilation just two weeks ago as the city was liberated from Putin’s forces.
Volodymyr Zelensky, speaking overnight, said Kherson was struck by Russian artillery 258 times last week – with 21 more attacks reported yesterday.
Civilian infrastructure is the main target of the strikes, with Zelensky saying a water plant that supplies Kherson and nearby Mykolaiv was hit and destroyed – having just been repaired from earlier bombing. Apartment buildings were also hit.
The attacks deepen the misery that people still living in Kherson are being forced to endure, as Russian troops destroyed both water and power supplies before they fled across the Dnipro River on November 11.
