Day 295 of the Russia-Ukraine war

Russian shelling on Thursday (15 December) killed two people in the southern city of Kherson in the latest such bombardment since Kyiv’s forces recaptured it last month.

Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of the president’s office said, “The enemy hit the centre of the city again. One hundred metres from the Kherson region administrative building.”

Tymoshenko said that the most recent attack killed about two people.

Russian forces pulled back to the opposing bank of the Dnipro River that runs along Kherson and have since been shelling the city repeatedly, damaging key infrastructure.

Tymoshenko further said that earlier attacks from the Russian side across the entire southern Kherson region over the previous 24 hours had left three dead and 13 more injured.
