Quote from Tymoshenko: "At 07:00, Russian terrorists began shelling the village of Kushchove, Zaporizhzhia district. The Russians did battle with a cultural center, farmers' warehouses, and private houses".

Details: Over the past day, 52 shellings were recorded in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, and one person was killed. The invaders also destroyed 16 facilities of civil infrastructure, Tymoshenko added.

Vitalii Kim has reported that the area of Mykolaiv was not shelled, but the shelling was recorded in and around the settlements of Shyroke hromada, Bashtanka district, around 00:30 and 02:30. There were no casualties.

Russians have only 120 Iskanders left.

The terrorist country [Russia - ed.] has used about 80 percent of its modern missiles in strikes against Ukraine's civilian infrastructure.

This means that Russia has 120 Iskanders left, according to the Main Intelligence Directorate.

In addition, Skibitskyi said that Ukrainian military intelligence has become aware of the Kremlin's plans to purchase Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar ballistic missiles from Iran and send them to Crimea by air and to Russian Caspian Sea ports by sea.

"We know that agreements have already been reached," the representative of the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate said.

Russian forces build a defense line around Mariupol.

Petro Andriushchenko, Advisor to the Mayor of Mariupol, has reported that Russian occupation forces have commenced the construction of a defense line around Mariupol.

Quote from Andriushchenko: "Two small concrete-producing plants have been built in Mariupol and are now working to supply the front. They are producing concrete anti-tank 'pyramids', some of which are being taken to Zaporizhzhia and Kherson.

Others are being installed on the road connecting Mariupol and the town of Nikolske. [Russian forces] are also substantially reinforcing their positions between the northern part of the city and the village of Staryi Krym."

Andriushchenko said that despite Russia's claims that "Russia is here forever," its forces on the ground are far less optimistic.

"Before the Kharkiv counteroffensive, they were unearthing additional equipment for the front. Now they are substantially reinforcing Mariupol's defenses," he added.
