The Russian army shelled the only operating supermarket in Kherson. “At least three people were killed and five were injured” the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine reported. The victims are employees and customers of the facility.
In the south of Ukraine, in the city of Kherson, there was an attack on the only supermarket in the city. On Wednesday, around 11 a.m., the Russian army shelled the building.
The local Ministry of the Interior provided information about the victims.
“We know of three dead and five wounded. These are employees and customers of the stores”
said the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs Ihor Klymenko.
Pools of blood and piles of debris lay on the ground outside the Kherson hypermarket, whose entrance had been heavily damaged and cordoned off, Reuters correspondents on the scene said.
The interior ministry said the victims were all either customers or workers at the hypermarket. “When the enemy can achieve nothing on the battlefield, it strikes at peaceful cities,” Ukrainian military spokesperson Serhii Cherevatyi said. Many windows were smashed at the railway station, and at least two survivors were seen being carried out on stretchers. Three women who had been eating at the time of the attack said they took cover under a table.
The prosecutor's office said 22 people had also been wounded in Kherson city in “chaotic shelling and strikes on civilian infrastructure facilities.”
Regional governor Oleksandr Prokudin on Wednesday announced a curfew in Kherson city to last from Friday evening until Monday morning for “law enforcement” reasons. He gave no other explanation.
