Russian forces shelled the city of Nikopol in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast early in the morning of Feb. 12 with artillery, oblast Governor Serhii Lysak said.
One 53-year-old woman was killed, while an 87-year-old woman was wounded by shrapnel. The shelling also damaged four residential buildings, a water pipeline, and a college.
Ukrainian-held Nikopol sits across the 10-kilometer-wide Dnipro River from the city of Enerhodar, built around Europe's largest nuclear power plant, occupied by Russian forces since March 4.
Russian troops have frequently used the plant as a military base to launch attacks at Ukrainian-controlled territory, with Nikopol being shelled consistently almost every day since August.
