During the day, in the southern direction, Ukrainian defenders destroyed five ammunition depots of the Russian invaders.
This is stated in the message of the operational command “South”.
“In the operational zone of the South Bug direction, the situation is stably difficult but controlled. The destruction of enemy stocks and reserves, the destruction of command posts and fire control of transport routes continue,” the report says.
According to them, the enemy army is mostly demoralized but desperately resists.
“Trying to keep the defense on land, the enemy continues artillery, mortar shelling and air and missile attacks on our positions, civilian settlements, and local residents. Three times during the day, fighters and aircraft launched rocket attacks on our positions in the Berislav region, without loss. But one of the attack aircraft was defeated. The results are being updated,” the report notes.
The enemy bombarded the Mykolaiv region with 500-kilogram high-explosive bombs, where one civilian was wounded.
“The enemy continued to attack the Mykolaiv region, firing an air-launched missile from a Su-35 fighter at the Bereznegovatsky community. The Ukrainian air defense forces worked perfectly; the missile was destroyed,” they said in operational command “South”.

Rocket and artillery units worked out a number of fire missions at 9 control points, 2 ferry crossings, 2 drone control points, using air defense and by the accumulation of the enemy,” the construction site notes.
