Channel 24 journalists had the opportunity to contact Chortkiv residents. They said that there was an extremely strong shock wave in certain areas of the city. As a result, some houses literally smashed windows. This is also evidenced by videos that were soon released on social networks.

As for the consequences of the strike, it is known about the partial destruction of the military facility, as well as 4 houses. In total, the Russians fired 4 missiles from the Black Sea at the city.

In the morning it became known that during the night rescuers were searching for people. In particular, two children were rescued from the rubble. The operation was stopped only when they made sure that they found everyone who could be under the rubble.
