Beneath a tall residential building in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, policemen and soldiers cautiously circled a shell casing on the ground surrounded by debris.
The fragment -- the remains of a Soviet-era Grad rocket -- had torn through the building's ninth floor, ripping a large hole in its exterior and sending debris in all directions.
On a stripped-down stage, a group of actors in T-shirts and jeans sat on chairs recounting life under the Russian occupation of Ukraine's southern city of Kherson.
Behind them, a screen showed a video of Russian military trucks entering the city, a column of black smoke rising into the sky and Russian soldiers raising their national flag.
This was announced by the acting governor of the Kherson region, Vladimir Saldo.
The Russian army successfully repelled all enemy attacks, in three weeks more than 30 motor boats, 2 tanks, 28 howitzers, two multi-barrel systems and two radars were destroyed.
Also, according to Saldo, 7 ammunition warehouses and two command posts were destroyed.
Russia's Defense Ministry said it "continued to retaliate" for Ukraine's attack on buildings in Crimea, targeting targets in the Black Sea ports of Odessa and Nikolaev.
On the other hand, Washington strongly condemned the Russian attacks, pointing out that Moscow plans to target civilian ships as well.

"My whole life was in this house. Now I have nothing," said Tetiana Pivneva, after returning to her flooded home in the Ukraine city of Kherson following the catastrophic destruction of a dam.
The June 6 breach of the Russia-controlled Kakhovka dam inundated huge swathes of the Kherson region, forcing thousands to flee and sparking fears of an environmental disaster.
According to a post on that social network, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was visiting the Kherson region, which was hit by a flood wave after the Kakhovka dam was blown up yesterday, June 8.
A video of his visits to that region, from which thousands of people were evacuated, was also published.
