Russia-Ukraine war: Strikes on Kherson kill 10

Russia-Ukraine war: Strikes on Kherson kill 10

At least 10 people have been killed and dozens injured in Russian air strikes on the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, officials say.

Residential and administrative buildings in central areas of the city were damaged in the blasts.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said there were no military facilities in the area.

Kherson, the only regional capital captured by Russia since the invasion, was liberated by Ukraine last month.

Since then it has been frequently targeted by Russian forces positioned on the other side of the Dnipro river.

Russia has frequently denied targeting civilians in its attacks.

The strikes came exactly 10 months after the beginning of the invasion.
