The situation in the South is complicated, dynamic in development, but controlled by the defense forces of Ukraine.

The enemy, mostly sticking to the lines of defense, dared to counterattack in two directions: to Biloghirka and to Andriivka. There was no success. Left with losses.

In the evening, the enemy again attacked Mykolaiv with "Smerch" rocket salvo systems. Hitting the open surfaces of one of the districts of the city without losses and destruction only emphasizes the essence of the psychological pressure of such attacks.

Ukrainian aviation made five strikes on the enemy. Pairs of attack aircraft and a bomber hit 3 enemy strongholds, and pairs of helicopters hit 2 more around the villages of Berislavsky and Kherson districts.

Colonel of the Operational Command "South" Vladyslav Nazarov

Rocket and artillery units completed 271 fire missions during the combat day: During an attempt to carry out reconnaissance with a subsequent attack in the Mykolaiv region, an anti-aircraft missile unit destroyed a UAV of the "Forpost" type.

The total confirmed losses of the enemy are: 66 personnel, three T-72 tanks, three tracked mine countermeasures, two howitzers "Msta-S", self-propelled howitzer "Gvozdika", mortar complex "Sani", three units of vehicles. Conventional and field ammunition depots were destroyed in Chornobayivka and Biloghirka.

The bulk of the enemy naval group continues to hide in missile-unreachable areas of the Black Sea along the southern and southeastern coasts of the Crimean Peninsula, and in preparation for missile strikes - 2 surface and 1 underwater carrier of Kalibr type missiles.
