On the Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, Russian attackers fired on areas in and around Strilecha, Bochkove, Komisarove, Krasne, Zelene, Ambarne, Buhruvatka, Hatyshche and Odradne in Kharkiv Oblast.

On the Kupiansk and Lyman fronts, over 20 settlements came under Russian fire including Dvorichna, Kupiansk, Kyslivka, Kotliarivka and Krokhmalne (Kharkiv Oblast) and Stelmakhivka, Makiivka, Ploshchanka and Dibrova (Luhansk Oblast).

On the Bakhmut front, Russian troops opened fire on areas in and around more than 20 settlements, including Yakovlivka, Spirne, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Soledar, Bakhmut and New-York in Donetsk Oblast.

On the Avdiivka front, Russian invaders fired on Avdiivka, Vesele, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Kamianka, Heorhiivka, Marinka and Novomykhailivka in Donetsk Oblast.

"Due to the underachievement of the volunteer recruitment plan for the Territorial Defence Forces in Belgorod Oblast [Russia], the local police has been deployed to assist with the recruitment campaign. The officers are going around apartments and houses, conducting a census of the conscription-age male population and giving talks on promoting the service," the General Staff reported.

During the past day, the Ukrainian Air Force struck one cluster of Russian troops. Ukraine’s Rocket Forces and Artillery inflicted fire damage on four clusters of Russian manpower and equipment, as well as on two fuel and lubricant storage points belonging to the Russians.
