According to the United Press Center chief of the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine, Natalia Gumenyuk, the enemy used ballistic weapons at night. The S-300 fired at residential areas of Kherson.

She noted that the Russian occupiers acted according to the so-called "Mykolaiv scenario", because before that they massively bombarded Mykolaiv with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles, which were not typical for this.
