Quote from Reznichenko: "A tense night of air-raid sirens and shelling. Two districts of the oblast - Nikopol and Kryvyi Rih - came under enemy attack.

Russian troops shelled Nikopol twice. 60 rockets from Grad MLRS hit residential areas. Preliminary reports indicate that there were no casualties."

Details: In Nikopol, one house was destroyed, almost 50 were damaged, and about 30 outbuildings were also affected. Fires broke out in two private yards - the fires were extinguished by rescue workers.

 

Buildings and equipment of three local enterprises were damaged by shelling, as well as more than 100 solar panels.

 

The occupiers knocked out two power lines in Nikopol, leaving more than 3,000 Nikopol residents without electricity. Emergency teams of electricians are working on the scene.

 

In the Kryvyi Rih district, the Russian forces fired on the Karpivka and Shyroke hromadas [Amalgamated Territorial Communities] using Uragan MLRS. 

 

Housing was destroyed in Shyroke, and a 44-year-old woman was injured. Reznichenko reported that she has been given help and is being treated at home.
