A Russian attack on Nikopol in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast killed one person and wounded another civilian, Governor Serhii Lysak reported on Telegram on Nov. 10.

The afternoon attack, which used two kamikaze drones, killed a 67-year-old woman and injured a 68-year-old man.

The man received medical treatment for shrapnel wounds, Lysak said.  

Lysak reported earlier in the day that Russian forces used heavy artillery to attack the region around Nikopol overnight, damaging three homes.
