Russian forces attacked Nikopol in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on the morning of Dec. 21, killing two women, aged 46 and 60, and injuring an 86-year-old man, said Governor Serhii Lysak.

The man was found in the rubble of a destroyed house and taken to the hospital.

The attacks also damaged several homes and other civilian buildings.
