In Chaplynka (Kherson oblast), Russian soldiers imposed a round-the-clock curfew from February 23 to February 25, 2023. The reason may be the transfer of military equipment from the temporarily occupied part of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to reinforce the defense line.

In the town of Nova Kakhovka (Kherson oblast), the Russian army is conducting door-to-door rounds of the local residents’ homes. Russian troops are checking the registration and documents confirming ownership for the housing. Whenever these are not found, the residents are evicted within a week, with Russian troops moving in and quartered instead.

During the day of February 24, Ukrainian Air Force launched 14x air strikes on the concentrations of personnel and military equipment of Russian military. The Ukrainian Defense Forces also destroyed 1x Mi-24 attack helicopter and 1x Lancet UAV.
