Quote: "The horde [Russian forces - ed.] was battling a gymnasium, a pet shop, an association of Afghanistan veterans, coffee shops and other ‘military’ targets. They damaged [several] multi-storey and private residential buildings and power lines."

"On our side, box offices were selling tickets for the Kobzon concert [i.e., Russian military personnel were being killed by the Ukrainian Armed Forces; Iosif Kobzon was a Russian singer who has become a symbol of an outdated Soviet aesthetic; he died in 2018 and has since become a meme - ed.]. All the sounds that could be heard in the city and in the skies over it accompanied the actions the Ukrainian Armed Forces undertook to defend coastal areas."

Details: Russian forces carried out around 12 attacks using tubed artillery.

There are no casualties or fatalities following the Russian attacks.
