This was reported by the General Staff in a daily update on Facebook. At the same time, our military warns that the likelihood of missile and air strikes across Ukraine remains high.

"Over the last day, the enemy launched one missile and 58 air strikes, fired more than 26 times from multiple launch rocket systems at the positions of our troops and populated areas.

The situation is difficult for residents of the temporarily occupied territories. In the best traditions of the "Russian world", the invaders loot and evict people from their own homes, and occupy even such harmless institutions as kindergartens and schools.

"In the village of Radensk in the Kherson region, Russian soldiers have converted the territory of a local kindergarten into a field hospital. Dozens of wounded occupants are being treated there," the General Staff said.

However, our military do not leave the enemy without a fair response. Over the past day, Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit four control points, three air defence facilities, nine artillery pieces at firing positions and four occupiers' electronic warfare stations.

As OBOZREVATEL reported, "many different events are planned for the next week, which will definitely strengthen Ukrainian defence," President Zelenskyy said. In connection with the massive attack by the Russian Armed Forces on Odesa, the head of state stressed that the main target of the occupiers is humanity and the foundations of our entire European culture.
