Kim told on the United News telethon that the nighttime Russian missile attack caused panic among Mykolaiv residents, especially those who had recently returned to the city.

"It was an unusual attack. We have not had any shelling since December 31. So it was like snow on our heads. This Russian attack caused a slight panic among Mykolaiv residents, especially those who recently returned to the city. During the period of massive shelling, we had a little over 200,000 people, and now we have over 400,000. Many people are not used to this," Kim said.

According to him, many children have recently appeared in the city, and people have begun to get used to a peaceful life.

"The strike hit civilian infrastructure and residential buildings where there are no military facilities, it's just plain terror," Kim summarized.
