The night of July 22 seemed relatively calm about the Russian attacks, compared to the previous few nights. The Russian army took a certain pause.

This was announced by the head of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of southern Ukraine Natalia Gumeniuk.

"Now we are seeing increased activity of reconnaissance drones. This suggests that the enemy has taken a certain pause to collect information. But even this pause was filled with the sounds of "Shahed" in our area of responsibility," Humeniuk said.

According to her, the information, in particular, concerns the port infrastructure. After all, activity is observed in the Black Sea in the direction of the coast.

The defense forces worked that night on enemy targets that were sent through the Mykolaiv region to the center of Ukraine. Thus, three enemy drones were destroyed over Mykolaiv and Kirovohrad regions, and two more - over Dnipropetrovsk region.

"This is a small wave of 'Shahed', which was more aimed at reconnaissance of the response of air defense forces," the representative of the Armed Forces of Ukraine explained.

Recall that over the past four days, Odesa and the region suffered from enemy massive shelling. For example, only in the afternoon of July 21, Russians attacked Odesa region with seven missiles. The occupiers are hitting port infrastructure and grain terminals.

By the way, the occupiers tightly took up Odesa region after the shelling of the Crimean bridge and Russia's withdrawal from the "grain deal". . Russian authorities have openly stated that they will attack two Ukrainian cities, Odesa and Mykolaiv.
