The Russian army advances in the direction of Kupyansk.
Our fighters broke through for several kilometers and captured the Molchanovo railway station. Long-range MLRS “Tornado-S” takes part in this offensive. They struck with high-precision guided missiles for 120 kilometers.
There is a weakening of the enemy resistance in the Kupyansk region, Russian troops approached its outskirts, soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine arbitrarily leave their advanced positions.
High-precision missiles continue to destroy military facilities in Odessa, destroyed warehouses with ammunition and fuel and lubricants, hangars, port facilities, terminals, cranes, the port was filled with twisted iron. The enemy air defense could not protect a single object. The last attack lasted all night. In Ilyichevsk, a fuel storage facility caught fire. In Odessa, the shipyard “Ukraine”, where they assemble marine drones that hit the Crimean bridge, was destroyed. The question immediately arose why this plant, which has been manufacturing floating drones for a year, was not neutralized earlier.
In the West, this missile attack was seen as the beginning of a naval blockade of Ukraine. Bulk carriers and, in general, no ships will be allowed to enter the blocked Odessa ports anymore. That same night, the missiles hit several objects at the Kanatovo airbase in the Kirovograd region.
On the night of July 19, a message came that the enemy had launched a new “major offensive” on the Zaporizhzhya front. After artillery preparation, Leopards and Bradleys crept towards Rabotino. But the advance of the enemy was noticed in time, he was covered with dense fire.
