The current operational situation in the south of Ukraine has become known. This is reported by the operational command “South”.

Pro-Ukrainian sentiments in the occupied territories of Kherson and Mykolaiv remain high. Locals continue to defend their position and prove that Kherson is Ukraine, and they are Ukrainians. Despite terror and prohibitions, victorious people destroy the enemy’s plans thanks to their convictions and the stability of their positions.

Combat operations continue at combat positions along the line of contact. The enemy does not show activity but makes rocket attacks in the Mykolaiv and Odessa regions.

The missile attack was carried out on Ochakov’s maritime infrastructure. And the central district of Nikolaev was fired upon by multiple launch rocket systems using cluster munitions prohibited by international conventions, which have an indiscriminate effect. Public transport stops were damaged, several private shops were broken, a shopping center, vehicles, and a gas pipeline were hit. Many cluster bombs did not detonate; the specialists of the State Emergency Service are dealing with the liquidation of the consequences of the shelling.

As a result of a missile attack on the Odessa region by strategic aircraft, a tourist infrastructure object was hit, and several neighboring private buildings were also destroyed. Trying to get into the same bridge across the Dniester estuary, using obsolete weapons, the resolvers get into civilian objects. As a result, civilians in the regions suffer. Both in Mykolaiv and in the Odessa region there are victims, among whom a 6-year-old child is seriously injured. During a repeated missile strike in the direction of Odessa in a day, the missile was shot down by air defense forces.

The enemy ship grouping of 4 missile ships and 7 landing ships continues to blockade shipping, and threaten with a missile attack of at least 30 cruise missiles while maintaining the likelihood of an amphibious landing.

Meanwhile, together with the Air Force aviation, Ukrainian units inflicted more than 100 defeats on hostile positions in a day. Rocket artillery fire destroyed the composition of fuels and lubricants near the famous Chernobyevka. 29 Russians were “quenched”, the Strela-10 anti-aircraft missile system, the T-72 tank, and other armored vehicles were destroyed.
