In Nikolaev, military installations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were hit, including ports and a shipyard

On Sunday evening, the Russian military launched a series of attacks on military and infrastructure facilities in Nikolaev, RIA Novosti reported, citing Sergei Lebedev, coordinator of the Ukrainian underground. The strikes were divided into three waves, the first of which was aimed at the city's port structures, including the seaport, the Olvia port and the Black Sea Shipyard, known as the largest shipyard in Ukraine, where aircraft carrier cruisers of the USSR Navy were built in Soviet times.

The second wave of attacks affected the Nikolaev oil depot and the Zorya-Mashproekt plant, which is part of the military-industrial state holding Ukroboronprom and produces gas turbine equipment for warships. According to Lebedev, the plant brought in workers from Western Ukraine to work at defense facilities, which were separated by checkpoints.

As a result of the attacks, two trains with equipment and ammunition for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as about 20 units of Western military equipment, were destroyed. There are also reports of an attack on the Alexandria junction station in the Kirovograd region, used by the Ukrainian armed forces as a transit point. Key railway routes linking Odessa with Kharkov and Kiev with Dnepropetrovsk pass through Alexandria.
