Details: According to the General Staff’s information, the Russian troops have probably temporarily put off its mission to blockade Kyiv. They are currently regrouping in order to focus their efforts on an offensive on the Eastern front. To this end, they are improving material and technical logistics support of troops on the Donetsk and Tavriya fronts.

Russian military personnel are demoralised and have low motivation to take part in hoscombat operations in Ukraine. According to the information available, the attempts by the Russian military command to mobilise "volunteers" are not supported by local people. For example, only 17 so-called "volunteers" have been recruited in the Kaliningrad region.

On the Volyn front, no movement of Russian tactical units or changes in their composition have been recorded. Operational and combat training are underway among the Belarusian Armed Forces.


On the Polissya front, Russian troops have been observed moving along the state border of Ukraine with the Republic of Belarus. At the same time, the Russian occupation forces continue to accumulate near ​​the Chornobyl nuclear power plant, the New Safe Confinement and the Exclusion Zone as a whole. Mixed convoys of enemy vehicles have been observed moving from the settlement of Ivankiv towards the Chornobyl power plant.

On the Siversk front, the Russian army has focused its efforts on sabotage and reconnaissance activities, reorganising troop positions, and artillery strikes on units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and infrastructure near the city of Chernihiv.

There was a partial withdrawal of units of the Russian Armed Forces from the Russian-occupied area on the Brovary front, towards the border with the Russian Federation.

On the Slobozhansk front, Russian troops continue to blockade the city of Kharkiv and to carry out artillery strikes on residential neighbourhoods of the city.

Russian troops are gathering forces on the Izyum front by moving separate units from the 20th All-Army and the 1st Tank Army from other fronts. They continue to launch missiles, carry out bomb strikes, and to fire artillery.

On the Donetsk front, the Russian army has intensified fire and assault operations. It continues to carry out air and missile strikes on the cities and towns of the Donetsk region. The main efforts of the Russian troops are focused on taking control of the cities of Popasna, Rubizhne, and Mariupol.

On the South Bug front, Russia is trying to restore the combat capability of its troops, and replenish their supplies of ammunition, fuel, and lubricants. Russian troops continue to reorganise their positions in the occupied territories. They are trying to contain the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by carrying out artillery attacks and air strikes.
