Four Ammunition Depots Destroyed

Russia's three ammunition depots in Kherson Oblast and one in Mykolaiv Oblast were also destroyed.

The Operational Command South said, "The enemy continues to conduct combat actions from occupied positions. Due to the large losses, there has been a significant deterioration of the morale and psychological state of the Russian troops in the Kherson region in the last week," according to Ukrinform.

15 Ukrainians Killed In Russian Strike

It came as 15 people were killed after Russia launched a series of rockets on the town of Chasiv Yar in eastern Ukraine. Rockets hit a five-story building in the town, killing more than a dozen and wounding many. Russia has stepped up its assault on the town of Sloviansk.

Andriy Yermak, the chief of staff to Ukraine's president, said the strike was "another terrorist attack" and that Russia should be designated as a "state sponsor of terrorism" as a result, according to The Guardian.

Ukraine claimed that Uragan rockets, fired from truck-borne systems, hit the building.

Three people were still trapped under the ruins while five were recovered from the rubble. Attempts are underway by Ukrainian emergency services to rescue three people.

Russia is accused of targeting civilian residences in missile strikes. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a video address on Saturday stated that Kyiv has evidence, which proves that Moscow shells residential areas whether those are close to front lines or not.
