Editor's note: This news article was updated to include the latest information on casualties caused by recent Russian attacks on Kherson Oblast.

Russian forces dropped an explosive from a drone on Mykolaivka village in Kherson Oblast, heavily injuring a 78-year-old man, the regional military administration reported on Sept. 23.

The elderly man suffered heavy wounds, including chest injuries, and lost part of his arm, according to the report. He has been hospitalized.

Meanwhile, Kherson City Military Administration chief Roman Mrochko reported that Russian forces shelled the regional capital. Explosions were heard in the Dniprovskyi district of Kherson, according to Mrochko.

Following the attack, Kherson Oblast Governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported that a 65-year-old woman was killed and a 27-year-old man was injured in Kherson. According to the report, the woman was killed in her home when a Russian shell hit the building.
