Quote: "The enemy is using air strike tactics, not risking carrying out offensives by land.

[The Russians] carried out 4 strikes from Olhino and Arkhangelske using two Ka-52 helicopters, targeting Ivanivka, Koshove and Zarichne (twice). There have been no casualties.

Velyka Kostromka was shelled with heavy artillery. The destruction of civilian infrastructure continues.

In response, a couple of our attack aircraft struck the enemy's concentration near Davydov Brod. The enemy fired back with two air-to-air cruise missiles launched from a Su-35 fighter jet."

Details: Continuing to attack Russian reserves and concentration points, the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a missile attack on a concentration of their troops near Darivka in Kherson Oblast.

During firing missions, missile and artillery units of the Ukrainian Army killed 30 Russian troops and destroyed a T-62 tank, an Uragan self-propelled multiple rocket launcher system, a Msta-B howitzer, 8 motor vehicles and 2 ammunition warehouses.

In the northwestern part of the Black Sea, there are currently 3 Russian surface vessels and 2 submarines carrying Kalibr cruise missiles, with more than 30 missiles on standby to be used.
