Video footage has emerged of thick smoke rising from a Russian ammunition warehouse in Novooleksiivka, Kherson Oblast, amid reports of loud explosions. The hit comes after a string of successful strikes reported by Ukraine. On Monday, the Ukrainian army said it successfully executed long-range strikes, hitting strategic bridges on the Dnieper River and Russian bases the previous night. Writing on Facebook, regional deputy Sergei Khlan said: “What a night for the occupiers in the Kherson region. Strikes in the area of the Antonovskiy bridge.” Natalia Gumeniuk, the southern army command spokesperson, confirmed the attack, telling Ukrainian television: “The firing system we have developed in recent days shows results. The impact has been considerable for both the Antonovskiy and Kakhovskiy bridges.” Russian-backed forces also confirmed the strikes.
