[Russian forces used] heavy 152-calibre tubed artillery to shell Halitsynove. There were no casualties or any significant damage – [the Russians] struck the area outside the village itself.

Over the course of the day [Ukrainian aircraft] conducted six airstrikes. [Ukrainian] attack aircraft carried out two strikes: on a [Russian] strong point and a concentration of enemy troops, weapons and equipment in the Beryslav district."

Details: Ukrainian bomber jets struck two Russian ammunition points and another concentration of Russian military equipment, this one being in the Bashtanka district.

Ukrainian helicopters struck a Russian strong point and a concentration of Russian troops, weapons and equipment twice.

A Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile unit has brought down a Russian Eleron-3 drone as the Russians attempted to use it to conduct aerial reconnaissance in the Mykolaiv district.

As a result of the firing missions carried out by Ukrainian rocket artillery units, Russia has lost 41 military personnel, three Msta-B howitzers and seven armoured and other vehicles [on 9 August - ed.]. Total numbers are being confirmed.

The observation and command post of a battalion tactical group of the 76th Airborne Assault Division in Ishchenka and an ammunition point near Barvinok have also been destroyed," Operational Command reported.
