The army of Kyiv attacked positions between Nikolaev and Kherson, but suffered significant losses and returned to their starting positions
A large supply of fuel was destroyed after the attack of the Russian invaders on the oil depot in the Kryvyi Rih region, said the chairman of the regional military administration of the city, Alexander Vilkul, quoted by the UNiAN agency.
The enemy continues to suffer losses in manpower and equipment and is focusing on defense, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Operational Command “South” announced.
“Our rocket and artillery units are striking at the rear and at the command of the occupying troops. Two enemy drones of the Orlan-10 type have been destroyed,” the headquarters’ report also reads.
“However, the Russians continue to commit inhumane crimes by shelling civilians. In the Kryvyi Rih region during the day, the enemy shelled the settlements of Apostolovo and Zelenodolsk with prohibited cluster munitions. Invaders hit civilian sites. A woman born in 1936 who was picking tomatoes in her yard died in the town of Apostolovo. A fragment of cluster munitions hit her. Three more people were injured. They are 59, 72 and 78 years old. They were admitted to hospitals in Kryvyi Rih in a critical condition and our doctors are fighting for their lives,” Vilkul announced.
In the attack on the oil base in Kryvyi Rih, 13 residential buildings, several cars, two gas pipelines and 30 solar panels were also destroyed.
“Around 19:00 in the Kryvyi Rih area, the enemy launched two missile strikes with cruise missiles at the oil base. A large supply of fuel was destroyed. Rescuers begin to localize the fire. All operational services are working on the ground,” Vilkul also said.
Meanwhile, blogger Yury Podoliaka announced on his Telegram channel that Ukrainian fighters have captured Blagodatovka and plan to continue the counteroffensive to the south.
However, according to him, the losses for the Ukrainian army are huge against the background of the insignificant results.
“There has been an operational break in the Visokopole region. No one attacked, but Kyiv’s army is expected to resume a counteroffensive in the coming days. Between Nikolaev and Kherson yesterday there was a very powerful attack. Several dozen units of armored vehicles and one battalion of infantry were used. Ukrainian forces suffered significant losses and returned to their starting positions,” he adds.
“The Russian troops resumed the offensive in the Pesky region. Fighting is taking place in the southern parts of Parvomaysk. As a result of the previous victory of the First Army Donetsk Corps and specifically of the 11th Regiment, the Armed Forces of Ukraine withdrew from the western parts of Donetsk Airport. They understand that holding this position is practically impossible and have left it without a fight. They retreated to Odinoe and are preparing for a final battle, and the allied forces will try to cut the last line connecting Avdeevka with the so-called a large land,” Podoljaka also said.
In his Telegram channel, blogger Mikhail Onufrienko from Kharkiv posted a video showing Ukrainian fighters being transported to the front line near Kherson in school buses.
