Ukraine Police Say Civilian Areas Heavily Damaged in Recently Liberated Kherson Oblast Village

Footage released by the National Police of Ukraine (NPU) on November 9 is described as showing civilian areas damaged in the recently-liberated Kherson Oblast village of Velyka Oleksandrivka.

Velyka Oleksandrivka was liberated by Ukrainian forces in early October.

“The police continue to document the war crimes of the Russians, to identify the units that were here and the identities of Russian military personnel,” the NPU said.

The video shows a government building that the NPU said was occupied by Russian forces. Walls in some of the rooms are heavily graffitied.

Ukrainian officials reported the village was shelled by Russian forces on November 8. It was unclear if the damage shown in the footage released by the NPU was caused by that shelling. Credit: National Police of Ukraine via Storyful
