Russian and Ukrainian armies fight in southern Ukraine for control of Mykolaiv airport.

 

The Russians claimed the airport Monday morning, but the regional governor said the Ukrainian army had recaptured the area hours later.

Governor Vitali Kim reports that the airport is being attacked by, among others, Russian tanks. Earlier, he said in a video message that the Russian military had “been chased away”.

The airport is located in the north of Mykolaiv, a port city with almost half a million inhabitants. Russian soldiers invaded the city last Friday.
