In the south, more than 50 Russian Grad rockets hit the Dnipro River city of Nikopol, killing two people found in the rubble, Governor Valentin Resnichenko said.
Moscow, which calls the invasion a “special military operation” aimed at militarizing its neighbors and rooting out nationalists, says it is using high-precision weapons to destroy Ukraine’s military infrastructure and protect its own security. Russia has repeatedly denied targeting civilians.
