International desk: In the southern part of Ukraine, fierce fighting has begun between the country's army and Russian troops. In this regard, Russian officials said, Ukrainian troops continued their offensive in southern Zaporizhia.
There are reports that they are fighting fiercely with Russian troops there. Some military experts say the attack could be part of Ukraine's counter-offensive against Russia. The Kiev government has given little information about plans for such an attack.
Zaporizhia was seized days after Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine in February last year. Europe's largest nuclear power plant is located here. The nuclear power plant is supplied with water from the reservoir of the Nova Kakhovka dam and its fuel rods are cooled by water.
Meanwhile, drone and missile strikes in Ukraine and Russia have reported injuries to civilians in both countries. Eight people were injured when two cruise missiles hit a car wash and industrial area in the central Ukrainian region of Cherkasy, the regional governor said. The governor of the Russian border town of Veronje also said three people were wounded in a drone attack on an apartment block there. Earlier, people were evacuated from the city due to security reasons.
