Quote from Reznichenko: "The Russians deployed Grad [multiple-launch rocket systems] and heavy artillery to fire on Nikopol and Marhanets hromadas [administrative units designating the cities of Nikopol and Marhanets, respectively, and their adjacent territories – ed.].


Nikopol sustained the most damage. Nearly 40 deathly shells and rockets hit the city overnight.

Two women, aged 46 and 82, sustained injuries. Both have been hospitalised at a local hospital. Both are in moderate condition."

Details: More than 40 apartment blocks and private houses, around two dozen outbuildings, and several gas pipelines and power lines were damaged in Nikopol as a result of last night’s attacks.

Russian shells destroyed one residential building and caused two fires, in an apartment and in the yard of a private house. Firefighters have since extinguished the flames.

A local college, a civil registration office, an administrative building and a tyre fitting shop also sustained damage.

The residents of Marhanets hromada were spared, though private houses there sustained some damage.
