At least three people were injured in two Russian artillery strikes across Nikopol and Kryvyi Rih in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, regional governor Valentin Reznichenko said in a Telegram post on Aug. 6. Both barrel and rocket artillery was used in the strikes.

“As per usual, they struck residential areas, where people were sleeping in their homes,” said Reznichenko.

Three people were injured as a result in Nikopol, when at least 20 rocket munitions rained down on the city, according to the governor. As many as 40 houses and 11 apartment blocks in the city were damaged, along with a kindergarten.
