Two people are killed by Russian bombings in Ukraine

At least two people were killed in Russian shelling in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson on Tuesday morning, local officials said.

The regional governor, Oleksandr Prokudin, released a video of the aftermath of the attack, which showed the bodies of two dead people on a street in the center of the city, as well as blood near holes in the road caused by the bombing.

"The doctors who quickly arrived at the scene were only able to declare them dead," said Prokudin, speaking about the two victims.

The head of Kherson city administration, Roman Mrochko, added that a medical building was also attacked, where four doctors were slightly injured.

Russian attacks on the port city on the Dnieper River have become common since the Ukrainian army liberated it last year. Killings of civilians in this area are reported almost daily.

Due to the winter and the immobility of the front line of more than 1,000 kilometers long, both sides used aerial bombardment to put pressure on each other's armies.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is expected to address US senators via video tonight, amid fears that Ukraine's efforts to fight Russia could fail if it does not have continued support from the West.

The Biden administration has asked Congress to approve the White House's request of nearly $106 billion to fund the wars in Ukraine, Israel and other security needs.
