The Russian military struck 16 settlements in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, killing three civilians in Novodanylivka, Orikhiv, and Mala Tokmachka, according to the regional administration. A 52-year-old woman was injured and hospitalized in Orikhiv.

The attacks damaged civilian infrastructure and destroyed 31 homes in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, the regional authorities wrote on Facebook.
