Russian forces launched several attacks on Kherson during the early hours of the morning, resulting in seven injuries, according to Oleksandr Prokudin, the head of the regional military administration, via Telegram on Thursday, August 3.

Early reports say the Russian army targeted a church in the center of Kherson. Three passengers on a trolley bus that was passing by the cathedral at the time of the Russian attack sustained injuries. They’ve been transported to a hospital by ambulance.

According to Prokudin, a 39-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man are currently receiving medical attention and undergoing examination. A 74-year-old man suffered severe chest injuries and an internal brain injury; doctors are working to save his life.

While rescuers were battling the fire in the church, the Russians resumed firing, as stated by Serhiy Kruk, the head of the State Emergency Service (DSNS).

Additionally, four employees of the DSNS were injured, and specialized equipment was also damaged. All the victims have been hospitalized, and doctors are providing them with the necessary medical assistance.

Kherson has been persistently targeted by Russian invasion forces, with the most recent tragedy occurring on August 1 when Russian troops attacked a hospital, tragically claiming the life of a young doctor who was on her way to work. Additionally, five individuals sustained injuries.

The shelling of Kherson on August 1 resulted in the death of a police officer.
