Quote: "The enemy tried to launch an airstrike on our positions with a Mi-24 helicopter. Thanks to a well-organised defence and the effective and proactive use of appropriate weapons [by Ukrainian forces - ed.], the enemy pilot evaded the strike and hastily retreated without using weapons."

"Missile and artillery units in cooperation with aircraft have completed over 100 fire missions over the past 24 hours. According to preliminary estimates, 35 Ruscists [Russians] were killed and several infantry fighting vehicles have been destrited. The final enemy losses are being confirmed."

Details:  14 civilians have been injured as a result of shelling of the Mykolaiv region over the past 24 hours. A woman has been killed.

Mykolaiv and Bashtanka Raions [districts] have suffered from the shelling the most.

"The situation in the Odesa region is stable. Counter-sabotage measures have not only achieved quantitative results but also qualitative ones," the report said.

"Ship groups in the Black Sea continue to keep the south of Ukraine and other regions under threat of missile strikes. The use of missile systems from Crimea and/or strategic aircraft is also not ruled out," the command added.
