Russian troops are conducting defensive battles, resorting to remote fire to hold their ground in the South Buh direction.
“The situation in the operational zone in the South Buh direction is steadily tense, but controlled by the defense forces. The enemy is conducting defensive battles on the retreat lines: while losing their logistics and reserves, they set up no strike groups, at the same time trying to keep up remote shelling as the main form of fighting,” Nazarov said.
The spokesperson noted that the Russian aggressor attacked Odesa with seven Kalibr-type missiles from the Black Sea waters. One was shot down by the Air Defense Forces, while the rest hit a peaceful village. Five households were destroyed and caught fire, a school and a culture hub were damaged, while six civilians were injured, including a child.
In Mykolaiv region, the enemy once again shelled farms and farmland around the settlements of Vysunsk, Novyi Buh, and Lepetikha, atypically employing an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system. Russian troops also rained fire on the Nikopol and Kryvy Rih districts.
As reported earlier, as a result of missile attacks on one of the villages in Odesa region on July 19, six people were injured, three households and two outbuildings were destroyed or caught fire, while a number of private estates, cars, a local school, and a culture hub were damaged.
