Russia carried out an air strike against the Beryslav district at around 1:20 p.m., the regional prosecutor's office said.

An aerial bomb reportedly hit a local cafe, killing a 59-year-old resident. Several buildings were also damaged, including a kindergarten, the prosecutors said.

Sometimes around noon, Russian forces also attacked the Korabel city district of Kherson, Governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported.

A 40-year-old police officer suffered minor injuries and was provided with medical assistance, the governor said.

On Oct. 25, Russian attacks against the oblast killed two people, including a child, and injured four others, Prokudin reported earlier today.
