Russian shelling damages homes and civilian infrastructure in Nikopol/Zaporizhzhia
The southern Ukrainian city of Nikopol was struck by shells in the early hours of Monday, a Ukrainian military official said.
Valentyn Reznichenko, head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional military administration, said in a Telegram post that more than a dozen homes, several power lines and a gas main were damaged.
At least 15 shells struck Marhanetsk and Chervonohryhorivsk, two settlements on the outskirts of Nikopol, he said.
No casualties were reported, he added.
Russian forces also shelled the southeastern city of Zaporizhzhia overnight, according to a Ukrainian official.
In a Telegram post Monday, Zaporizhzhia city council secretary Anatoliy Kurtiev said several people were injured and homes were damaged in the attacks.
Three people, including a 9-year-old and a 15-year-old, were taken to the hospital for treatment, he added.
Zaporizhzhia was among a number of Ukrainian regions targeted by Russia over the weekend as missile strikes against the country’s utility infrastructure led to emergency power cuts.
