Russia struck civilian infrastructure in Kherson on the morning of November 21, according to a report issued by Kherson Regional Council First Deputy Chairman Yuri Sobolevsky on his Telegram channel.
“There are missile strikes in Kherson, again on civilian infrastructure. There are wounded civilians, medical care is being provided,” Sobolevsky wrote.
In the morning, the media, as well as local residents on social networks, reported explosions in Kherson. No air-raid alarms were sounded.
Earlier today, reports revealed that almost all the offices in the Security Services of Ukraine (SBU) building in Kherson were mined. According to the speaker of Ukraine’s operational command “South” Vladislav Nazarov, explosive devices cannot be removed, so the only way out is to blow up the entire building.
After the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) liberated Kherson, Russia launched a massive missile strike against Kyiv and more than a dozen other Ukrainian cities on November 15. A total of 90 missiles were launched: Kalibr missiles were fired from the Black Sea, X-101 and X-555 rockets were launched from the Caspian Sea and from the Rostov region. According to the Ukrainian Air Force, 73 of the 90 missiles launched were shot down, along with 10 Shahed-136 kamikaze drones. Russia used 14 Tu-95 strategic missile-carrying airplanes, ships of the Black Sea Fleet and Iranian drones for the strikes. However, some of the missiles hit residential buildings and critical infrastructure.
