Quote from Prokudin: "This is how the Korabelnyi district of Kherson looks like after another Russian attack. The enemy fire damaged high-rise buildings, the premises of an invincibility centre, an educational institution and garages [an invincibility centre is a public heated place, stocked with food and power banks and with Internet access; such points appeared in Ukraine soon after the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion in 2022 to assist residents facing hardships due to power cuts – ed.].

The occupiers took the life of a 72-year-old man. He was on the balcony at the time of the attack. 

An ambulance took another man to hospital with an injured leg. Another resident of Kherson sustained a mild concussion."
