Quote: "Yet another glaring case of orcs’ [Russian troops -ed.] inhumanity took place this evening. A peaceful convoy of refugees leaving Kherson Oblast near Beryslav town was fired upon by artillery."

"The orcs gathered them in the morning, kept about a thousand vehicles under the scorching sun, and started releasing batches of 200 vehicles only in the afternoon to cover the movement of their own military equipment."

"At 16:00, the orcs carried out a vicious attack on the peaceful convoy, which had already reached the area under our control near Bila Krynytsia."

Details: Oleksandr Vilkul stated that civilians were injured in the shelling, including a child born in 2011. The child and a woman born in 1954 received shrapnel wounds.
