This was reported on Facebook by Ukraine’s Operational Command South, Vigilant reports.
Heavy barrel artillery fired at the Kryvyi Rih district three times and Mykolaiv twice. While there’s no critical destruction or losses in Kryvyi Rih, the Mykolaiv strike destroyed a household and a grain warehouse on the city’s northern outskirts. The fire that broke out was promptly put out. A local person suffered minor shrapnel wounds.
A Russian Orlan-10 reconnaissance drone was downed over Mykolaiv region.
A pair of enemy Ka-52 strike helicopters attacked the outskirts of Oleksandrivka, Kherson region, where no casualties were reported.
In response, the Ukrainian air component was employed five times, in particular in the area of the administrative border of Mykolaiv and Kherson regions. Attack aircraft and helicopters struck at clusters of enemy forces and equipment, an outpost, and a Strela-10 anti-aircraft missile system.
Also, missile and artillery units over the past day eliminated 22 Russian soldiers, an Uragan multiple rocket launcher, three armored combat vehicles, five trucks, and two ammunition depots.
The enemy launched missiles at Odesa region. One of them was shot down, while the rest hit the coastline in the region’s south. No significant damage and no casualties were reported precisely because public access to the coastline in this area has been closed.
