Russian shelling in southern Ukraine left eight people dead and 34 injured on Sunday, the Ukrainian prosecutor general said on Monday.

 

According to the prosecutor, homes, vehicles and civilian infrastructure were also damaged.

The victims were in the cities of Mykolaiv and Ochakiv. The governor of the Mykolaiv region said on Sunday that someone had died in Russian shelling. He also said that among the injured was a 15-year-old. The information from Ukraine has not been independently confirmed.

The Kyiv government has said Russia had diverted its offensive into southern and eastern Ukraine after withdrawing its troops from areas around the capital.

Russia said late last month that the operation in Ukraine would revolve around the “liberation” of the two eastern Ukrainian regions that are home to pro-Russian separatists.
