Russia strikes hospitals in Kherson city and oblast twice in a day.
The occupiers struck a medical facility in the city of Kherson this morning. The Oblast Military Administration reports that at that time, doctors were admitting patients, so it was crowded. Casualties were averted only because people, hearing loud explosions, immediately ran out into the corridor.
In the afternoon, the occupiers attacked the ambulance station in the city of Beryslav, Kherson Oblast. Due to shelling, the station premises were destroyed. Doctors' cars were damaged.
The ambulance driver received minor injuries. The man was injured by shards of glass, but his life is not in danger.
Norwegian Intelligence: Russian ships go to sea with tactical nuclear weapons for first time in 30 years.
Russia has begun deploying ships armed with tactical nuclear weapons in the Baltic Sea for the first time in 30 years.
"The key part of the nuclear potential is the submarines and surface ships of the Northern Fleet," the Norwegian intelligence noted.
The Northern Fleet warships regularly went to sea with nuclear weapons during the Cold War era, but this is the first time the modern Russian Federation has done the same.
While Russia also has submarines, anti-satellite weapons, and cyber capabilities that could threaten Norway and NATO, tactical nuclear weapons are "a particularly serious threat in several operational scenarios, in which NATO countries may be involved," the report said.
The Norwegian intelligence also noted that an escalation of a localised war into a wider conflict involving the United States, NATO and Norway cannot be ruled out.
According to the agency, although Russia will maintain, modernise, and develop its nuclear arsenal, no significant changes in Russian nuclear doctrine are expected in the coming years.
