Russian forces dropped six guided aerial bombs on the Beryslav district’s settlements in Kherson Oblast on the evening of Jan. 23, killing a woman, according to Oleksandr Prokudin, the regional governor.

Kherson and other regional settlements on the west bank of the Dnipro River suffer from daily strikes launched from the Russian-occupied east bank, leading to casualties among civilians and large-scale destruction of homes and civilian infrastructure.

One of the six air bombs hit a residential building in the village of Shliakhove, around 70 kilometers east of Kherson, Prokudin said on Telegram.

The body of a local woman, born in 1963, was found under the rubble during a search and rescue operation, he added.

Prokudin didn't specify whether there were casualties or damages in other regional settlements hit by Russian air-launched bombs.

Russian attacks against Kherson Oblast earlier the same day killed three people and wounded another two, according to regional authorities.
