“On weekends the city will be closed, buy water and groceries in time. We are working, including on the collaborators,” Governor Vitaly Kim said in a video message on Friday.
The governor had already announced the lockdown in July. The 41-year-old also offered a bonus of almost 100 euros for information on artillery observers directing the Russian fire at objects in the city.
Mykolayiv is bombarded with rockets by the Russian army from a distance of around 25 kilometers almost every day. According to the authorities, civilian objects are hit almost exclusively. Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. The city had almost 500,000 inhabitants before the war.
