Quote from Reznichenko: “The Russians have been pounding the area in and around Nikopol using rocket launchers and heavy artillery all night long… They have hit four hromadas – Nikopol, Marhanets, Chervonohryhorivka, and Myrove – nine times. Almost 130 Russian shells landed in our towns and villages! Preliminary reports indicate no casualties.”
Details: Russian invading forces have struck Nikopol three times. Almost 40 houses, more than 20 outbuildings, cars, 30 solar-power station panels, a transformer substation and power lines have been damaged in the city.
The homes of almost 3,000 families have had their electricity cut off again. Engineers have already started the repair work.
The areas surrounding Marhanets, Chervonohryhorivka, and Myrove hromadas are currently being surveyed to ascertain the extent of the destruction.
