At least 10 people were killed after shelling on Saturday, 24 December. At the time of the attack, the streets were busy.

Ukraine's minister of defence, Oleksii Reznikov took to Twitter to share the damage to the city. He shared:

“Barbaric shelling of Kherson by Russian terrorists is not only another war crime, but also revenge on its residents who resisted the occupation and proved to the whole world that Kherson is Ukraine.”

Reznikov said that the only way to prevent such tragedies will be through counter-battery warfare, more artillery, and more long-range ammunition. He added that with proper prevention methods in place the Russian army will be driven out of the country.

According to Business Insider, Zelensky had previously warned that Russia may become active once the holiday season draws closer. He added that the area attacked was a central part of the city and not military facilities.
