On the evening of Aug. 6, the Russian military shelled the village of Olhivka in Kherson Oblast, injuring a 73-year-old woman and a 77-year-old womаn, the Kherson Oblast Military Administration reported.

Both women were hospitalized with "acute injuries." According to the report, one of the shells hit the yard of a private house.
