"Private sector of Pavlohrad. Between the yards... On the road... Face to the ground... This is how the locals met this morning. They were hiding from the enemy's iron. At that moment, their houses were falling down around them," the head of the OVA wrote.

The blast wave damaged five schools, four kindergartens, an outpatient clinic, shops, a bank and a dormitory, as well as seven cars.

"Power equipment was also damaged, there are power outages. Repairmen are working," added Lysak.

He noted that three communities in the district - Verbkivska, Yuriyivska and Mezhyrytska - were affected by Russia's attack. More than 50 residential buildings, three schools, two kindergartens, a hospital and a community center were damaged.

It should be noted that two people died as a result of the Russian strike on Pavlohrad. This was announced by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in his evening address on May 1.
