Enemy firing Smerch MLRS on Mykolayiv to hold on to occupied positions

The enemy fires Smerch MLRS on Mykolayiv city, trying to hold on to the occupied positions. 

“The enemy tries to hold on to the occupied positions and fires Smerch MLRS on Mykolayiv at night, pursuing its usual tactics of the enraged beast. The residential buildings were struck. Unfortunately, one of the residents was killed. At the same time, the enemy continues artillery and mortar shelling of the settlements from which it retreated. Thus, both combat and psychological pressure is exerted on the local population," the Operational Command "South" posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

As noted, Russian military continues to prepare the fake "referendums" in the occupied territories of Kherson and Mykolayiv regions.

By blocking the exits from the settlements, the occupiers seize the buildings of local government agencies, tear down Ukrainian flags, collect personal data of locals to fabricate voting results while brandishing weapons and handing out humanitarian aid.

The forces and tactics of the aggressor's naval group in the Black Sea are also unchanged. The threat of missile strikes remains.

On February 24, Russian president Putin announced the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy key infrastructure facilities, residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.
