Russian shelling of Komyshany settlement in Kherson Oblast on Aug. 22 killed one resident and injured another, Governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported.
A 71-year-old woman was killed and a 55-year-old man was injured while walking in the street, according to the report.
The Kherson Oblast Prosecutor's Office said that Russian forces carried out the attack at around 11:20 a.m., most likely using artillery. Residential buildings and a gas pipe were reportedly damaged.
Kherson Oblast, which remains partially occupied since the first days of Russia's full-scale invasion, suffers regular strikes against its territory.
During the past day and overnight, Russian attacks injured four civilians in the oblast, Prokudin said.
This included a 43-year-old man injured in the village of Zolota Balka, a 79-year-old woman and a 60-year-old man injured in the strikes against Sofiivka, and a 48-year-old man injured in the attack against Beryslav, according to local officials.
