One person was killed when Russia hit the city's railway station at 1 p.m., the head of the regional military administration, Oleksandr Prokudin, said on Telegram. Six more people were wounded, the Health Ministry said.

An ambulance car got damaged too but the medics were not hurt.

The Ukrainian railway company said that its train attendant was injured.

A child was heavily wounded and rushed to hospital, according to presidential office head Andriy Yermak.

Due to chaotic shelling on civilian infrastructure, 12 people were killed and about 22 sustained injuries of varying severity, the regional prosecutor's office said.

Under the procedural supervision of the Kherson district prosecutor's office, a pre-trial investigation was launched into the violation of the laws and customs of war, combined with premeditated murder (Part 2 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

Another Russian shelling attack was reported later in the day.

"Kherson is still under fire from Russian artillery! Five more Kherson civilians have just been injured by enemy shelling - one person was killed and four were wounded," Prokudin added.
