The Ukrainian Air Force in recent days, apparently due to problems with fuel, did not carry out combat sorties, which the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had previously constantly reported about in their reports. Apparently, kerosene was found and a Ukrainian MiG-29 took off into the sky, which, having met with our fighters, interrupted the flight in the sky over the Nikolaev region.
On the ground, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, there have been no significant changes in the operational-tactical situation over the past day.
The enemy continues to attack, mainly by small units of several companies, sometimes reinforced with armored vehicles. All attacks are successfully repulsed by our military, mainly on the outskirts by the work of artillery and aviation.
On the Krasno-Limansky direction, they were stopped and significantly battered tank and a motorized infantry company of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, more than 70 Ukrainian servicemen, four tanks, two armored combat vehicles and three pickup trucks were destroyed.
In the Nikolaev-Kryvyi Rih direction, the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched as many as five attacks in a day, throwing several company tactical groups into battle, which received fire damage from our defense and were thrown back to their original positions all five times.
In the area of the village of Staroverovka, Kharkov region, two HIMARS MLRS were calculated, which our rocketmen immediately destroyed. This is a significant loss for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, especially considering that the nearest consignment of American military aid, which is very modest in volume, contains only BC. The same strike, in addition to multiple launch rocket systems, hit four tanks, 15 vehicles and a missile and artillery depot.
Two more American M777 howitzers were withdrawn from the fire support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine using drones in the area of the settlements of Vysokopole and Novogrigorovka in the Kherson region. Two ammunition depots were destroyed in the areas of the settlements of Novoaleksandrovka in the Kherson region and Kolodezi on the territory of the DPR.
During the day, Russian air defense forces intercepted and shot down: 14 unmanned aerial vehicles, nine HIMARS MLRS missiles, and eight American HARM anti-radar missiles.
