Chornobaivka shelling

After liberation from Russian occupiers, Chornobaivka is constantly shelled together with Kherson, Berislav, and other settlements on the right bank of the Kherson region.

The Russian army shelled Chornobaivka in the Kherson region on October 12. One person lost their life.

During the battles for Kherson in the fall of 2022, the Ukrainian military consistently targeted occupiers in Chornobaivka, devastating not only equipment but also the living forces of Russians.

It reached a point where the occupiers began to panic at the mere mention of Chornobaivka. They massively refused to advance in this direction.
