A Russian drone dropped explosives on a car carrying a married couple on Oct. 13 in the city of Beryslav in Kherson Oblast, killing a 34-year-old woman and severely injuring her 36-year-old husband, Kherson Oblast Governor Oleksandr Prokudin said.

The man was reportedly taken to the hospital for treatment.

A 79-year-old woman who appeared to have been in the area of the explosion was also wounded.
