Ukraine’s Rocket Forces and Artillery struck eight areas where Russian military personnel, weapons and equipment were concentrated, as well as ammunition storage points and other important military targets of the occupiers."
Details: The Russians are trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, focusing on deterring the actions of the defence forces on certain fronts, and conducting offensive actions on the Bakhmut and Avdiivka fronts.
The Russian invaders are attacking the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces along the entire line of contact, reinforcing defence fortifications on some fronts and conducting aerial reconnaissance.
During the day, the Russians carried out 3 missile attacks and 11 air strikes, as well as more than 25 attacks from multiple rocket launchers.
About 25 cities and towns were hit by the occupiers’ attacks. These are Nikopol (Dnipropetrovsk Oblast), Bakhmutske and Vuhledar (Donetsk Oblast) and Nova Kamianka (Kherson Oblast).
Russians fired from tanks, mortars, tubed and rocket artillery on the Sivershchyna, Slobozhanshchyna, Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut and Avdiivka fronts.
The Russians shelled positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and civilian infrastructure facilities near more than 20 cities and towns along the entire contact line.
On the Pivdennyi Buh front, the Russians fired at more than 30 cities and towns. The occupiers continue to mine areas along the coastline of the Dnipro River.
Russians are trying to restore the damaged pontoon-bridge crossings. The invaders launched up to 50 UAVs of various types in order to conduct air reconnaissance missions.
The Russian occupying forces continue forced mobilisation measures to replenish their current losses.
In the temporarily occupied Khrustalnyi (Luhansk Oblast), the so-called mobile groups detain and transport all men to the military enlistment office.
According to available information, another batch of prisoners came to Stanytsia Luhanska, from the territory of Russia, to replenish the units armed with MANPADS. Local so-called law enforcement officers are forbidden to intervene in case of violations by the arriving mercenaries.
To replenish the losses on the Zaporizhzhia front, another batch of Russian servicemen has arrived in Vovkivka; they are chaotically moving through the streets, begging the locals for food and an opportunity to wash themselves.
