Russian troops shelled the town of Orikhiv in Zaporizhzhya Oblast, with one of the shells hitting a humanitarian aid distribution point on the afternoon of Nov. 22, killing one person and wounding two others, regional governor Oleksandr Starukh reported on Telegram.
According to him, as a result of a direct hit to the school building where the distribution point was located, a social worker was killed, and two more women were injured.
"There could have been many more victims, but they were prevented due to the proper organization of the work on the distribution of aid, avoiding the creation of lines and crowds of people, and the availability of equipped shelters nearby," the official added.
Russian troops are systematically shelling the frontline town, and have already fired hundreds of shells at the settlement.
On Nov. 19, the Russian military targeted aid distribution points during the distribution of bread in Bilozerka, Kherson Oblast. Five people were injured as a result of Russian attack.
