A civilian facility in the town of Beryslav, Kherson region, was damaged by Russian air strike.

The Russian invaders continue to strengthen security measures in the temporarily occupied territories. Recently, there has been a tendency to impose restrictions on the free movement of Ukrainian citizens between settlements. 

In particular, in Horlivka district of Donetsk region, as well as in Kakhovka district of Kherson region, it is impossible to get to certain settlements without local registration.
