Quote: "Six air strikes were carried out during the day on our units' positions, on Zmiinyi Island and simply on civilians. By helicopters, in pairs and groups, the enemy worked on the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, concluding in the evening with attack aircraft, but without us sustaining any losses.

In response, our pilots carried out paired raids on ammunition depots, strongholds and concentrations of enemy forces and equipment near Snihurivka, Blahodatne, Olhyne and Davydov Brod. The results are being further investigated.

However, it is already known that the enemy army was reduced by 27 Rashists [Russians - ed.], a Tor surface-to-air missile system, a Msta-S self-propelled howitzer and 3 armoured and motor vehicles".

Details: In addition, defence forces destroyed 3 Russian field ammunition dumps in the Kherson region.

In the Kherson and Skadovsk districts, Russian forces continued reconnaissance to identify the positions of Ukrainian units.

This resulted in the destruction of two Russian drones by Ukrainian Armed Forces.

An operation is also underway to clear Zmiinyi of the occupiers and their equipment.

During the day, the results of additional reconnaissance revealed and destroyed a Grad multiple-launch rocket system, another Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile system, 3 armoured and motor vehicles, a tanker and a hiding area for other equipment.

"No signs of enemy presence have been detected," Pivden Operational Command reported.
