"This day was quite difficult for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The occupiers continue shelling in almost all directions of the front line. The Air Force opposes the aggressor both in sky and on earth. The aviation garrison in Vasylkiv heroically defends itself, withstanding massive shelling and enemy attacks. Air Force officers bravely repel the aggressor in other cities and military garrisons. Today, bombardment and assault aviation fired missiles at six columns of military equipment of the occupiers," the press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine posted on Facebook.

As noted, Su-25 attack aircraft in pairs and units attacked and destroyed columns of enemy vehicles in Kherson and Chernihiv regions.
