The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) deliberately aimed at civil bus, shelling the area of the Darevsky bridge in the Kherson region. This was announced by the deputy head of the regional administration Kirill Stremousov.
According to him, the arrival of the projectile was recorded just a few steps from the vehicle. He recalled that there were passengers on the bus.
“Conversations that it was accidental are, of course, absurd,” the administration official told Rossiya 24 on air.
Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian militants attacked a bus with civilians from the American multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) HIMARS. Five people are believed to have died in the attack.
On Thursday, October 6, the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired on Antonovsky bridge in Kherson. According to the emergency services of the region, there were no casualties among the civilian population.
