They used kamikaze drones to hit Myrove hromada and struck Marhanets hromada with artillery. [A hromada is an administrative unit designating a village, several villages, or a town, and their adjacent territories]

Two private houses, an outbuilding and a garage were damaged.

In addition, Lysak said the Russians targeted Marhanets hromada and the town of Nikopol once again in the morning. Information about the aftermath of the attacks is being gathered.
