The situation within the control area of the South Operational Command is remaining tense and challenging but controlled by the Ukrainian defense forces.

On the night of July 31, 2022, Russian invaders struck the city of Mykolaiv with the Smerch multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). With the modified S-300 missile system projectiles of enhanced destructive action, the enemy destroyed three educational institutions and caused damage and destructions to several detached houses and apartment blocks.
A total of 17 warships and boats of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet are maneuvering near the Crimean coast, from the Tarkhankut Peninsula to Novorossiysk. Among them, there are six ships carrying 44 Kalibr cruise missiles. Four large landing crafts were also detected.
Considering Russia’s addiction to sacred and remarkable dates, the threat of missile strikes from the sea is now extremely high, the South Operational Command noted. At the same time, this does not rule out the use of Russian aviation and surface missile systems.
