Russian forces shelled Nikopol in Dnipropretrovsk Oblast seven times the night of July 26, Governor Serhii Lysak reported on Telegram.

The attacks damaged civilian infrastructure, including a school, church, and post office, Lysak said. The shelling also damaged a communications company, a pair of two-storey buildings, and power lines.

No injuries or casualties were reported.

Lysak said that in addition to the shelling, Russian forces fired a missile that was shot down by Ukrainian air defense.

"It was probably a Shahed," Lysak said.

Nikopol is positioned opposite the Dnipro River from the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, currently under Russian occupation. It is subject to regular shelling by Russian forces.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
