On July 1, in the southern parts of Ukraine, the Air Force warplanes engaged Russian army strongholds and ammunition depots.

This is reported by Ukrinform with reference to Operational Command South.

"Operating in pairs, our pilots struck ammunition depots, a strong point, and a cluster of enemy troops and equipment in the area of ​​Snihurivka, Blahodatne, Olhany, and Davydiv Brid. The results are still being verified, but it is already clear that the enemy's army in Kherson region has been reduced by 27 missiles, a Tor SAM launcher, a Msta-S self-propelled howitzer, three armored vehicles and trucks, and three field ammunition depots," the report says.

It is also noted that in the evening, enemy aviation tried to attack Odesa again. The Kh-31 missile, launched from an airplane over the sea, was destroyed by an anti-aircraft missile unit.
