A Russian artillery strike on the center of Kherson on the morning of Oct. 5 killed two people and injured one, Governor Oleksandr Prokudin reported.

Both victims were in the yard of a house during the attack, he added.

A 54-year-old resident also suffered injuries to his arms and legs and received medical assistance on the spot, Prokudin said.
