Russian forces attacked Kherson overnight, injuring three people, Kherson Oblast Governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported on Dec. 16.

A 55-year-old man suffered injuries to his limbs and a 51-year-old man received a shrapnel injury to the head as a result of the attack on the city, which also damaged infrastructure.

In the suburb of Stepanivka, debris damaged a medical facility and injured a doctor, Prokudin said.
