The man was riding a motorcycle at the time of the attack, according to Prokudin.

Beryslav, with a pre-war population of around 12,000 people, lies on the Ukraine-controlled west bank of the Dnipro River, some 70 kilometers east of Kherson.

Russian forces launched 84 strikes against Kherson Oblast on Jan. 21 and overnight on Jan. 22, firing 453 projectiles from various weapons, Prokudin reported earlier.

The attacks damaged an educational facility and a factory in Kherson, he added.
