At least eight people are known to have died so far as a result of shelling by Ukrainian forces of Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region, said the head of the military-civilian administration of the Kakhovka region, Volodymyr Leontyev. The Monday night strike blew up warehouses filled with mineral fertilizers, damaging hundreds of homes and dozens of infrastructures, according to authorities. The blazing difficult-to-control fires in the city are still going on. Video
The first reports of a strike on Novaya Kakhovka appeared on Monday evening. A TASS source reported that the Ukrainian side fired again at the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, which had already been attacked last Friday, but later the authorities clarified that the object was not damaged.

American-made HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems were used for shelling, said Ekaterina Gubareva, deputy head of the military-civilian administration of the Kherson region.
Local authorities have linked the attack on Novaya Kakhovka with recent statements by Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov about Kyiv’s plans to go on the offensive in the liberated territories. At least six were killed. The number of victims has increased to 80 people, said Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the military-civilian administration of the Kherson region. Leontiev did not rule out that the death toll could be in the tens as many civilian victims remain under the rubble or are trapped in damaged houses. Video 3
Ukrainian shelling led to the detonation of warehouses with mineral fertilizers, Leontiev reported. Natalya Zarya, head of the humanitarian aid centre, told reporters. She stressed that this is a serious blow for the city since ‘no one receives either pensions or wages.’
According to local authorities, hundreds of homes and dozens of infrastructure facilities were affected, including a hospital, kindergartens, temples and schools, as well as two city markets.
According to Leontiev, the GTMK plant, which produced equipment for hydroelectric power stations, was also destroyed. Gas and electricity supply was interrupted in Novaya Kakhovka, but the water supply continues to work.
Leontiev called the shelling ‘a crime that will be in the history books’ because the centre of a peaceful city was attacked with precision weapons.
