On the night of September 4, Russian troops shelled medical facilities and residential buildings in Mykolaiv and also struck Ochakiv.

Mayor Oleksandr Sienkevych and the head of regional administration Vitaly Kim informed about this.

The Mykolaiv Regional Military Administration added that around 02:30 Mykolaiv was subjected to massive rocket fire from S-300 systems. According to the administration, three medical institutions, two educational institutions, a hotel and a museum were "substantially damaged". Residential buildings were also damaged. There were no casualties.

As a result of shelling in Ochakiv, the elevator was destroyed, dozens of residential buildings were damaged, Ochakiv deputy mayor Oleksiy Vaskov said.

"In Ochakiv, this morning turned out to be not good at all. The elevator was destroyed, several thousand tons of grain were destroyed. Our utility services are now sorting out the debris. Dozens of houses were also damaged," Vaskov said.

He specified that no one was injured as a result of shelling of the city.

  • Due to the lack of high-precision weapons, the Russians began to use outdated S-300 anti-aircraft missiles more often. The invaders fired more than 500 such missiles on the territory of Ukraine, some of which did not reach the target. The occupiers are armed with several thousand such missiles, but most of them are unusable.
