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.
