In an unfortunate incident, two individuals sustained injuries due to shelling by Russian forces in the town of Nikopol, located within the Dnipro Region. The announcement was made by Serhiy Lysak, the head of the regional government, through the Telegram platform.

Nikopol has faced recurrent attacks from Russian forces over recent months, and during the last night, the aggressor unleashed heavy artillery fire upon both Myrivska Hromada and Nikopol itself. This indiscriminate attack resulted in injuries to two individuals, specifically, two men aged 44 and 68, who are currently under medical care and reported to be in moderate condition.

The geographical proximity of the Dnipro Oblast to the Zaporizhia Oblast, where the southern front line is situated, has made this region susceptible to frequent shelling incidents.
