On the night of June 15, the occupying forces shelled the town of Apostolove in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, killing four people, announced Mayor Andriy Osa.

The occupiers used Uragan multiple rocket launchers. The consequences of the shelling have already been superficially eliminated, but in the morning explosives technicians, police and the State Emergency Service are working on the spot.

Osa urges citizens to be careful, as all the targets of the Russian strikes remain unknown. In particular, the official asks not to approach metal objects.

The regional governor Valentyn Reznichenko reported about one wounded, who was hospitalized. In total, a dozen houses and a hospital were damaged in the town. According to him, the shelled area is covered with cluster munitions. Pyrotechnics experts are working. Besides, two more strikes at night were in the Novomoskovsk district.

The town of Apostolove is located in the Kryvyi Rih district in the southwest of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, near the border with mostly occupied Kherson Oblast.

The situation in the region

There are no active hostilities in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. However, the threat of missile strikes remains.

For example, on the night of June 11, the occupiers fired Uragan MLRS and artillery, hitting two communities — Zelenodolsk and Shyroke. At the time, two people were injured, houses, the mayor's office and the community center were damaged, and the village of Velyka Kostromka was deprived of electricity and gas supply.

According to the head of the military administration of Kryvyi Rih Oleksandr Vilkul, on the Kryvyi Rih axis, the Russian occupation forces are firing almost around the clock along the entire line of contact from multiple rocket launchers, artillery and mortars.
