Three people were killed as a result of Russian attacks on Nikopol in the Dnepropetrovsk region and the village of Myropilla in the Sumy region, the head of the region's authorities on Telegram and the Prosecutor General's Office announced on Monday.
“After lunch, the racists hit Nikopol with heavy artillery. They hit a private enterprise. They killed two of its employees – a 51-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man” said Serhiy Lysak, head of the Dnipropetrovsk region in the southeast of the country.
A third person was injured and taken to the hospital. The hit object has been damaged. https://t.me/dnipropetrovskaODA/5584

Nikopol's future is on hold, and the tidal effluvium wafting through the streets smells something like death. Until two weeks ago, water from the Nova Kakhovka reservoir, located downstream along the Dnipro River, reached the edges of the southern Ukrainian city.
But after the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam on June 6, the water level continued to fall, retreating hundreds of meters and leaving behind expanses of mud and rocks. Since then, the city has been deprived of its main source of drinking water. Meanwhile, downstream of the dam, the banks of the Kherson and Mykolaiv provinces are suffering the consequences of massive flooding.
Before the dam burst, Nikopol, which lies opposite the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant now occupied by Russian forces, had been reunited with some of its residents who had fled at the start of the war. “People were returning from Poland, and I even know a family who came back from the US,” Serhii said. Although he has always refused to leave despite the near-daily bombardments, the destruction of the dam could push him to settle elsewhere. “I'm 52, and it's too late to start somewhere else,” added Serhii, who was born in Nikopol, “If I leave, it will only be because of my children.”
