Invading Russian forces launched 27 attacks on Ukraine’s Kherson Oblast over the past day, firing 135 projectiles from heavy artillery, tanks, and Grad multiple rocket launchers, the region’s governor, Oleksandr Prokudin, said on Telegram on April 30
The invaders also launched UAVs over the southern Ukrainian oblast, the governor said.
One civilian was killed and another wounded as a result of the enemy attacks, he added.
He said that the Russians had shelled the liberated city of Kherson twice. Residential areas in other settlements in the oblast also came under Russian attack.
Prokudin added that 71 people were evacuated from liberated territories in Kherson Oblast over the past day.
Kherson Oblast Military Administration reported on April 29 that it was working on ways to evacuate residents of the region in the case of mass shelling attacks by the Russian military.
Prokudin said the regional authorities would identify safe routes for leaving settlements, would arrange temporary accommodation, and would provide medicines, food, and other necessities.
Russian invasion troops regularly shell civilian residential areas in other Ukrainian oblasts close to Russian territory or Russian-occupied territory, including Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhya, and Mykolaiv oblasts.
The International Criminal Court has announced that it is opening two war crimes cases against Russia, one of which concerns illegal attacks on civilian infrastructure.
