HI Wednesday’s Russian attack on Kherson left 16 people dead and nearly two dozen injured.
According to Sky News, citing local prosecutors, around 12 people died in the regional capital and around 22 people were “injured of varying degrees of severity”.
The Kherson region is partially occupied by Moscow troops, and the Russians have repeatedly attacked the city.
The military offensive launched on 24 February 2022 by Russia in Ukraine has so far displaced more than 14.6 million people – 6.5 million internally displaced and over 8.1 million to European countries – according to the latest data from the United Nations, which classifies this refugee crisis as the worst in Europe since the Second World War (1939-1945).
At least 18 million Ukrainians need humanitarian assistance and 9.3 million need food and housing assistance.
The Russian invasion – justified by Russian President, Vladimir Putin, by the need to “denazify” and demilitarize Ukraine for Russia’s security – was condemned by the international community at large, which has responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and imposing Russia off political and economic sanctions.
The United Nations presented as confirmed since the start of the war 8,709 civilians were killed and 14,666 wounded, underscoring that these figures are far from the truth.
