Russian forces intensify bombing of Kherson region

The Russian occupiers increased shelling and bombing of Kherson and the region. 

They use aerial bombs and missiles, which have not been used in this region for a long time, says Oleksandr Tolokonnikov, the Kherson Regional Military Administration spokesperson, Rubryka reports.

According to the official, over the past three days, the Russian forces dropped more than 50 aerial bombs on the southern region, including on Kherson.

"The number of aerial bombs increased almost three times, on some days, by four times," he said.

Tolokonnikov said that Russian troops began to use rockets in the Kherson region.

"They haven't been used for a long time. The rockets are sent here," he added.

He also appealed to the residents not to ignore the air raid warning.

"An air alert reacts to the takeoff of the Su-34 and Su-35 jets. It takes some time for the Russians to drop aerial bombs. There are 10-15 minutes before the Russian attack, depending on the launch point," Tolokonnikov says.

The situation in the Kherson region

Volodymyr Zelensky drew attention to the increase in shelling of the Kherson region.

"Special attention is given to Kherson, Kherson region. These days, Russia is shelling Kherson, Berislav, and villages of the Kherson region with particular brutality," the president said. "Artillery and guided aerial bombs. On houses, farms, ordinary shops, and infrastructure. Conscious terror by the occupier. My condolences to all those who lost relatives and friends!"

As Rubryka reported, Russian troops hit Kherson on Sunday evening, September 24, with guided aerial bombs.

They also attacked Beryslav of the Kherson region several times using jets, killing and wounding civilians. During the second airstrike of the night, the occupying forces destroyed private houses and killed a woman. Her identity is being established.

On Monday afternoon, the Russian forces launched an artillery attack on the market, destroying retail points, damaging a pharmacy, and breaking windows in the surrounding houses.

On Tuesday,  the Russian army attacked Kherson again. Around 3 p.m., Russia shelled residential areas. A 52-year-old woman, who was near her own house during the shelling, was hospitalized in a moderate condition. Two injured men were treated at the scene.

On the morning of September 25, Russian troops dropped four aerial bombs on Berislav, Kherson region. One of them fell on the building of the utility office, killing one person.
