Russian aviation struck residential high-rise buildings in the temporarily occupied Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region with guided bombs. Residents saw a Russian aircraft dropping bombs at around 9 a.m. on September 15.
The strike resulted in deaths and injuries among civilians. This was stated by Volodymyr Kovalenko, the mayor of Nova Kakhovka, according to Suspilne.
According to Kovalenko, residents saw an airplane dropping a bomb on a residential area. According to him, the high-rise buildings were severely damaged.
"At the moment, the block is surrounded by Russian occupants. They are going from apartment to apartment to see what the consequences are," the mayor of Nova Kakhovka said.
Eyewitnesses share details of what happened on local channels.
"An airplane flew over the summer houses before that. It dropped the bombs and turned around. It was a KAB bomb. The S-300 is launched from the ground," said one of the locals.
"I live in Chornianka and 2 KABs flew over us. We were in the garden and a minute later there was an explosion in the city," another commentator wrote.
There are also suggestions that the plane was carrying a bomb on the right bank of the Kherson region, but accidentally "dropped" it on the occupied city.
Journalist Denys Kazansky shares the same opinion.
"It is reported that another Russian bomb fell on the residential area of Nova Kakhovka, dropped from an airplane. This has happened before in Belgorod and Donetsk. There are dead and damaged residential buildings. The propagandists, of course, will now blame everything on Ukraine and say that we are 'fascists who are deliberately hitting civilians with Western weapons'," he wrote.
According to the Nikolaevsky Vaniok Telegram channel, the information about the enemy's KAB has been confirmed.
"The information about the enemy's KAB is confirmed. A couple of Su aircraft (departing from the Taganrog area) launched a bomb towards the Beryslav district, but one of the bombs fell in Nova Kakhovka. From now on, I ask residents of Kakhovka district to respond to warnings when KABs are flying in the direction of Beryslav district. As you can see, the crooked hands and the occupants' crooked bombs target civilians on both sides of the coast only, not some military facilities or "clusters of NATO equipment", which they like to grunt about in their telegrams," the message says.
According to Serhiy Bratchuk, head of the Public Council at the Odesa Regional Military Administration, the KAB was probably launched from a Russian Su-34 aircraft. He claims that the Russian bomb did not reach the right bank and fell in Nova Kakhovka.

NovaKahovka.City reports one guided aerial bomb, citing eyewitness accounts.
"According to the locals, the guided bomb fell between the houses. The houses at 24, 26 Horky Street and 13 Dovzhenko Street were damaged. The shock wave passed through the house on 24 Horky Street, the windows flew out onto the sidewalk. There was only one explosion. Perhaps the main charge did not detonate," the statement said.
The newspaper's correspondent on the scene also notes that many residents saw the dropping of the KAB.
"Two ambulances arrived at the scene. Plus, an Emergencies Ministry car was on its way to meet us. Rescuers tried to drive everyone away from the explosion site. Several balconies were on fire, ash was flying everywhere. We didn't come close because the heat from the fire was so hot that we almost got burned. The crowd had different opinions on this matter. One elderly man kept telling everyone that it came from the right bank. Other people said that it came from the Crimea. We didn't stand there for long, because soldiers started arriving. Many witnesses saw the KAB," the media writes.
Meanwhile, the occupiers reported one dead and three wounded residents.
Later, they released information about 12 wounded as a result of the shelling of the Sokil residential neighborhood in Nova Kakhovka with guided missiles.
