Russian occupiers attacked Mykolaiv on March 17 with ballistic weaponry. As a result of the shelling, there are casualties, reports Vitalii Kim, the head of the Mykolaiv Regional Military Administration.

According to him, the Russian military attacked Mykolaiv from the same location as Odesa on Friday, March 15. At that time, over 20 people died as a result of the attack. He adds that there are two installations in that location controlled by the Russians, hence there were two launches.
