The enemy continues to defend, using the fortified positions of the second and third lines of defense. Shackled by our counter-offensive actions, deprived of the opportunity to counteract actively, Russians uses the tactics of counter-battery struggle. The enemy fires on our positions and peaceful settlements in the rear to create the impression of its presence even in the liberated territories.

In the Mykolaiv region after enemy attacks at night on the outskirts of the regional center, the infrastructure was damaged; in the settlement of Lymany the wheat field was fired; in the Pervomaysk community, several apartments houses burned down. There are no victims.

In the Kherson region, as a result of heavy fighting, particularly in the settlements of Beryslav and Kakhovka, the civilian houses were destroyed; several civilians were killed and wounded; infrastructure and river banks were mined. The occupiers continued looting, and kidnapping of locals. Information about the mining of the shores of the Youth Beach in Kherson was received. The situation with providing medicines and essentials in the blocked communities of the Kherson region remains critically difficult.

Ukrainian units accurately hit 14 Russian soldiers, 7 units of armored vehicles and ammunition depot.

The naval group of the enemy fleet in the north-western part of the Black Sea continues the criminal mission to blockade shipping and threatens missile strikes throughout Ukraine without changes in composition and tasks. This means that the threat of missile attacks remains, and the probability of a naval landing operation due to sea disturbances is obviously reduced.
