This was reported to journalists in the operational command "South".

“Under cover of a thunderstorm, the enemy attacked Odessa with two Onyx-type anti-ship missiles, firing them from the Bastion coastal missile system from the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea. The air defense forces are ready at any time in any weather: both missiles were destroyed on approach to Odessa ".

The command also notes that the situation in the zone of responsibility of the southern defense forces is difficult but controlled.

"The enemy continues to conduct hostilities mainly by firing on our units to prevent the regrouping of troops while trying to strengthen new defensive lines. At our positions in the Kherson region in the middle of the night, a pair of enemy Su-35 fighters fired 2 missiles, and the positions in the Mykolaiv region were fired by the enemy attacked with a Tornado at dawn. No casualties,” the report says.

So, in the morning in the suburbs of Mykolaiv, air defense units destroyed an unmanned aerial vehicle of a directing operational-tactical level, with which the enemy carried out aerial reconnaissance and guidance of artillery on the regional center.

In the Bashtansky district of the Mykolaiv region during the night, the enemy hit the agricultural land with heavy shelling. There were no casualties.

"Fighting continues in the Kherson region. Enemy units do not shy away from hitting each other to quickly escape from the zone of active operations and "write off" the defeat of their colleagues on the Ukrainian military," the message says.

Practically all the settlements through which the Ingulets River flows are in a difficult situation: houses have been destroyed, elevators and other industrial, social and road infrastructure have been damaged.

The coast is mined in many places. Local partisans and members of the resistance movement are increasingly opposing the collaborators. As a result, they are strengthening their security, preparing to flee to the Crimea," the command added.
