The Russian-installed governor in Kherson has accused Kyiv of being behind the shelling that killed at least 10 people earlier on Saturday.
“This is a disgusting provocation with the obvious aim of blaming the Russian armed forces,” Volodymyr Saldo wrote on Telegram.
Russia controls most but not all of the Kherson region. The city of Kherson was recaptured by Ukrainian forces in November in a major blow to the Russian military.
Ukrainian presidential aide Kyrylo Tymoshenko said the attack came from a grad multiple rocket launcher.
