This was announced on Facebook by Operational Command South, Ukrinform reports.
"The enemy continues to rain fire at the civilian population in the liberated villages and our positions along the line of contact. The fighting takes place mainly in the form of artillery duels and air raids. Pursuing its futile efforts to retake lost positions in the area of Potiomkonovo, the enemy carried out a desperate air strike on our positions, involving a Mi-28 helicopter. No casualties,” the statement said

Russia keeps blockading navigation in the Black Sea, where the storm is also continuing. Two warships carrying 16 Kalibr missiles are fully combat-ready, therefore, the threat of missile strikes remains relevant.
