Russian forces attacked the Nikopol district in Dnipropetrosk Oblast with drones and artillery on March 16, injuring two residents, Governor Serhii Lysak reported.

The injured victims are a 77-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man.

The Russian military targeted the town of Nikopol and the Chervonohryhorivka community in a series of attacks throughout the day, damaging homes, property, and infrastructure.

More than 30 homes were damaged, and a fire broke out at one of the houses. Emergency workers extinguished the fire.

The attacks also struck an infrastructure facility. Power lines and a gas pipeline were hit, Lysak said.

Garages, cars, a forklift, and a greenhouse were also damaged. The attacks destroyed six outbuildings and damaged six others.

Nikopol, situated on the banks of the dried-up Kakhovka Reservoir, just across from Russian-occupied Enerhodar and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, is a regular target of Russian attacks.

Strikes on Nikopol on March 15 injured six residents and damaged multiple buildings, including homes, schools, and businesses.
