Russian attacks on Mezhova and Nikopol in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast left one dead and seven injured, Oblast Governor Serhii Lysak reported on Aug 16.

The attack that targeted the Mezhova community in the Synelnykove district killed one person, injured six, and caused severe destruction to civilian infrastructure.

According to Lysak, three fires erupted in the community, and almost 50 private homes were damaged. The attack also damaged agricultural facilities, an educational institution, and cars.

Rescue workers were dispatched to the scene to determine the extent of the damage. Lysak also said that 12 local residents received psychological assistance in the aftermath of the attack.

On the same day, Russian forces shelled Nikopol and the Marhanets community with heavy artillery.

A 63-year-old man was hospitalized from injuries caused by a mine blast and shrapnel. He is in moderate condition.

The shelling damaged a local cafe, 14 residential buildings, eight agricultural businesses, five power transmission lines, and vehicles. Forty solar panels were shattered.

Nikopol lies directly across the Dnipro River from Russian positions at the occupied Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant and is the target of regular artillery shelling by Russian forces.
