According to the deputy chairman of the Kherson regional council, this is not the first time the Russians have shelled medical facilities in the Kherson region.

But the objects they hit are humanitarian: hospitals, educational institutions where there are humanitarian centers, the State Emergency Service, where is the base of rescuers who leave after shelling to save people, – he stressed.
