Shelling Interrupts Interview With Resident in Flooded Kherson

An interview between a journalist and a resident of Ukraine’s Kherson region was interrupted by the sounds of shelling on Thursday, June 8, amid reports of Russian strikes on flooded areas along the Dnipro River.

Footage released by Current Time shows one of their journalists speaking to a resident before the sound of shelling is heard nearby and they proceed to take cover.

On Thursday afternoon, the interior ministry reported shelling at the evacuation sites around Korabelna Square, while Roman Mrochko, head of the Kherson city military administration, posted a video from a flooded area, saying evacuations were taking place “under fire.”

Earlier on Thursday, state broadcaster Suspilne reported that 1,900 people had been evacuated from the right bank of the Dnipro since the Kakhovka dam collapsed on Tuesday. Credit: Current Time via Storyful
