Russian army shelled with rockets seven Ukrainian oblasts: railway infrastructure was damaged in Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia Oblasts, three electrical substations in Lviv. The missile also hit in Artsyz town  in Odesa Oblast. Anti-air defense worked in Kyiv and Vinnytsya Oblasts. 156 people managed to evacuate from Azovstal steel mill, 20 children among them.
