Quote: "We have destroyed an enemy stronghold near the village of Khreshchenivka.
The enemy is continuing its efforts to hold the temporarily occupied territories; they seek to stop us implementing our plans; sometimes they attempt sabotage and reconnaissance or assaults.
An enemy group approximately the size of a company tried to improve its tactical position, advancing towards the village of Bezymenne from the village of Chkalove. They were unsuccessful and retreated with losses.
Enemy units are conducting constant aerial reconnaissance. In response to this activity, our units have shot down three Orlan-10 surveillance UAVs."
Details: In addition, Russian forces carried out six airstrikes. They targeted aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force with three air-to-air cruise missiles. Ukrainian aircraft did not sustain losses.
In the evening, Russian aircraft launched a missile attack towards Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia oblasts using five Kh-59 air-to-surface missiles. Four missiles were destroyed by the air defence forces of Air Command Skhid (East), and one hit a grain processing facility near the city of Kryvyi Rih. Production facilities have been damaged, but there were no casualties.
Ukrainian aircraft carried out six strikes on areas where Russian personnel and equipment were concentrated and on Russian air defence positions.
Ukrainian Rocket Forces and Artillery units performed more than 220 firing missions. They targeted four areas of concentration of Russian manpower and equipment in the village of Charivne, the town of Oleshky and the city of Kherson, two radio electronic warfare stations in Beryslav district, and, just in case, a bridge in the city of Nova Kakhovka.
Confirmed Russian losses in these operations are as follows: 18 military personnel, 2 tanks and 6 armoured and other vehicles.
Eight ships of the Russian fleet are manoeuvring near the Crimean coast in the Black Sea. A large landing ship and three surface carriers equipped with 24 Kalibr cruise missiles are on patrol.
"A continued threat of missile strikes remains. In addition to this, the possibility of Russia using kamikaze drones in southern Ukraine should be taken into account," the operational command reports.
