War in Ukraine: Russian missiles hit Kherson, killing at least four people

The shelling of the recently liberated city of Kherson has killed four people and injured at least ten, according to the Ukrainian army.

The latest attack marks an escalation in hostilities by Russian troops following their recent retreat from the southern city.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has lashed out at Moscow, comparing the strikes to terrorist attacks.

“Almost every hour I receive reports of attacks by invaders on Kherson and other settlements in the region. Such terror began immediately after the Russian army was forced to flee the Kherson region,” he said.

“This is the revenge of those who lost. They don’t know how to fight. The only thing they can do is terrorize. Either energy terror, or artillery terror, or rocket terror – that’s all Russia has sunk to under its current leaders “, – stressed the President of Ukraine.

Shells fell on the Kyiv region. In Vyshgorod, a kindergarten and a school were damaged as a result of Russian shelling.

In the capital, 60% of the population is left without electricity as winter sets in and temperatures drop to freezing.

Russian forces attacked the country’s energy infrastructure, causing millions of people to be turned off in emergencies.

Hospitals in Kramatorsk have been forced to rely on generators to keep the lights on while soldiers and civilians are being treated.
