Apart from Dnipro, Russian troops launched 11 attacks against Dnipropetrovsk Oblast’s Nikopol and nearby settlements, injuring four people.

"Peaceful settlements were under attacks from heavy artillery and drones," Lysak said.

Earlier in the day, Russian troops also hit Donetsk Oblast with an aerial bomb, killing one person and injuring two.

Five people were injured in a Russian attack on Kherson Oblast over the past day.
