At 10 a. m., Russia again used weapons prohibited by the Vienna Convention, cluster shells, against the civilian population of the city of Mykolaiv. The shells hit the city centre, not far from a public transport stop. Everyone who was waiting for the bus were hurt. 5 people died on the spot, and 7 more were seriously injured.
"The Russians have changed tactics. Yesterday they fired at a residential area, one-story houses, destroyed many houses there. And this is not at curfew. Today, they just fired at a completely different area — and next to a public transport stop. 12 people are lying on the ground," the head of the Mykolaiv regional state military administration Vitalyy Kim in a video message for residents of the region.
After a video message, Kim confirmed that 5 people had died. The mayor of Mykolaiv, Olexandr Senkevich, confirmed that the shelling of the city was carried out with cluster shells.
