Russian forces shelled Dnipropetrovsk Oblast's city of Nikopol on June 19, wounding a 73-year-old man, according to the head of the regional council Mykola Lukashuk.
The man was hospitalized in Dnipro with a mine-explosive injury, Lukashuk said on Telegram.
As a result of the attack, 16 houses, 11 outbuildings, a gas pipeline, and a power line were reportedly destroyed or damaged.
Nikopol, home to over 115,000 residents, is constantly shelled by the Russian army. On June 16, a Russian attack on the city killed one civilian and injured another, according to the regional governor.
The city sits across the drying Kakhovka Reservoir from the Russian-controlled Enerhodar in neighboring Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Europe's biggest nuclear power plant located in Enerhodar has been occupied by Russian forces since March 4, 2022.
