Both of the affected areas are on the opposite bank of the Dnipro River to the Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant, which has been shelled several times in recent days.
Both Russia and Ukraine have been fighting for over five months.
As of today, several casualties have already been recorded.
Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the invasion of Ukraine because of political differences between both countries.
