Russia launched drones and artillery attacks against the Nikopol district in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on Dec. 20, injuring two men, Governor Serhii Lysak reported.

The two victims, aged 21 and 22, were reportedly wounded in a drone strike against Nikopol. They did not require hospitalization, Lysak noted.

Russian forces also targeted the Marhanets, Pokrovske, and Myrove communities, according to the governor.

Some 11 houses, eight farm buildings, a car, a public transport stop, and powerlines were reportedly damaged in Nikopol.

A building and two cars were also damaged in the Myrove community, Lysak added.

Nikopol, situated on the banks of the mostly dried-up Kakhovka Reservoir, just across from Russian-occupied Enerhodar and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, is a regular target of Russian attacks.

Ukraine finally moves to fortify front line, but could it be too little too late?
“If you want to live, dig.” The words, often spoken by Ukrainian troops, are universal advice for trench warfare in general, but especially for both sides in Russia’s war against Ukraine. Normally expressed as advice to the individual soldier, the maxim now applies to the country as a whole.
