Last night, Russians launched a missile attack on Mykolaiv district. The falling debris of the aerial target caused dry grass outside the settlements to catch fire, says Vitalii Kim, head of the Mykolaiv Regional Military Administration.

Kim cited data from district military administrations and the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in the Mykolaiv region on the situation in the region due to Russian shelling.

On the night of June 26, around midnight, the Mykolaiv district came under a Russian rocket attack.

"As a result of the falling debris, dry grass caught fire in an open area outside the settlements. The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters," Kim says.

He adds that there were no casualties.


Earlier that night, explosions were reported to have been heard in Mykolaiv after midnight. At that time, an air alert was declared in the region due to the threat of Russian missile strikes.

Before that, the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine warned about the activity of Russian tactical aircraft in the east and south, and the threat of Russian occupiers using air strikes on the frontline regions.
