Over the past day, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have repelled the Russian occupiers’ attacks in the areas of Bilohorivka (Luhansk Oblast), Opytne, Bakhmut, Pobieda, and Marinka (Donetsk Oblast).

The Russians carried out 3 missile and 24 air strikes, and they fired using MLRS more than 30 times. More than 15 settlements came under fire, including Mykolaiv (Mykolaiv Oblast), Nova Kamianka and Mala Seidemynukha (Kherson Oblast), and Hatyshche (Kharkiv Oblast).


Russian troops used cruise and anti-aircraft guided missiles, as well as 20 Iranian-made Shahed-136 kamikaze drones.

On the Volyn, Polissia, and Sivershchyna fronts, the situation remains unchanged. The Russian army opened fire on other fronts:

The invaders keep trying to advance on the Bakhmut and Avdiivka fronts. 

Ukrainian aircraft carried out five airstrikes over the past day. Three strong points and areas where their weaponry and military equipment were concentrated, as well as two anti-aircraft missile system positions, were struck.

Rocket and Artillery Forces hit four command posts, seven areas of concentration of manpower, weaponry, and military equipment, an ammunition storage point, an air defence system, a bridge and a pontoon bridge crossing belonging to the Russians. 

More than 30 wounded after the Ukrainian army’s strikes arrived at the hospital of Melitopol in Zaporizhzhia Oblast at the same time.
