Quote: "The city of Nikopol has been shelled again!!!

Four volleys from MLRS on the sleeping city."

Background:

  • On 19 July, the Russian military hit the town of Nikopol, houses and the river port with Grad multiple-launch rocket systems, and fires broke out at two business premises.

  • On the night of 19-20 July, the Russian invaders once again shelled Nikopol, firing more than 30 shells from Grad MLRS: private houses were destroyed and damaged, two people were killed, and nine were injured.

  • Yevhen Yevtushenko, head of the Nikopol District Military Administration of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, called on residents of Nikopol to move deep into the territory of the Nikopol district — far away from the shelling of the occupiers.
