The governor of Ukraine’s southern border city of Mykolaiv announced an unusually extended curfew from late Friday to early Monday morning in order to arrest those working with Russia.

Mykolaiv, which has been bombarded since Russia’s invasion started on February 24, is located near Russian-occupied areas of the strategically crucial province of Kherson, where Ukraine intends to launch a counteroffensive.

The governor of the Mykoliav area, Vitaliy Kim, announced a curfew from 11 p.m. (2000 GMT) Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday. Monday did not indicate that the city was under assault or was about to be attacked.

“There’s no sign of an encirclement. For the weekend, the city will be closed. Please be understanding. We are also working on collaborators. Districts will undergo checks,” Kim said on Telegram
