Prokudin had reported on Dec. 23 that a Russian drone attack killed a 69-year-old in the village of Stanislav. Early on Dec. 24, he said that a couple in their 80s had been killed after a Russian artillery shell hit a residential building.

The body of a dead man was discovered in central Kherson after rubble was cleared, whose identity is being established, Prokudin said.

Russia regularly attacks Kherson from the east of the Dnipro, after Ukrainian forces liberated the city in November 2022.
