Zaporizhzhia’s regional military administration said it has recorded more than 80 Russian attacks on the region in the past day, according to a statement released on Thursday.

Yurii Malashko, head of the Zaporizhzhia region military administration, said there were “83 attacks on peaceful towns and villages,” consisting of 69 artillery attacks, seven air attacks, five UAV drone attacks and two attacks from a Multiple Launch Rocket System, or MLRS.

Malashko described “chaotic shelling” in Orikhiv, Preobrazhenka, and Novodanylivka, which resulted in the deaths of two men in their forties.

“Unfortunately, two men born in 1976 and 1979 were killed,” the statement said.

Aerial strikes also hit residential buildings in the Huliaipole district, a town in the Zaporizhzhia region on the front lines in eastern Ukraine, but no casualties or injuries have been recorded there.
