Details: Russian forces killed a resident of Huliaipole.

Quote: "The hromada spent the morning under attacks from MLRS and artillery.

Unfortunately, a married couple came under attack, where a 56-year-old woman was killed and a 61-year-old man was wounded. He was quickly taken to hospital.

Keep yourself safe from the cunning of Russian troops and leave the contact line! Entrust this issue to our defenders!"

Background: Russian forces regularly attack the frontline areas within MLRS and artillery range. Air-raid warnings are issued in Zaporizhzhia Oblast almost all the time.
