Another man was injured in the village of Kindiika near Kherson, the official added. All the victims have been hospitalized.
Earlier the same day, the oblast governor reported that Russian forces had struck the village of Sofiivka in the Stanislav community, killing one woman and injuring a man.
Kherson and other regional settlements on the Dnipro River's west bank, have been continuously subjected to Russian shelling since Ukrainian forces liberated them in November 2022.
Russian forces were pushed to the river's east bank, from where they have since been firing at the liberated territories, regularly resulting in civilian deaths and injuries.
