Quote: "The enemy is actively conducting reconnaissance, preparing for an offensive on certain fronts. Despite heavy losses, they are continuing attempts of offensive actions on the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka fronts.


No offensive groups of the enemy were detected on the Volyn, Polissia, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts."

Details: Over the day, Ukraine’s Rocket Forces and Artillery units targeted three clusters of Russian military personnel and a command post.

During the day, the Russians performed two missile strikes (on the civilian infrastructure of the settlements of Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, Donetsk Oblast) and two airstrikes. The Russians carried out 24 attacks using multiple-launch rocket systems.


On the Kupiansk front, the settlements of Dvorichna, Ivanivka, Kupiansk, Kyslivka, Kotliarivka, Krokhmalne, Pishchane (Kharkiv Oblast) and Novoselivske, Stelmakhivka in Luhansk Oblast came under Russian fire.

On the Lyman front, the Russians fired on Nevske and Dibrova in Luhansk Oblast and Terny and Serebrianka in Donetsk Oblast.

On the Bakhmut front, the Russians deployed tanks and artillery to fire on the settlements of Verkhnokamianske, Spirne, Bilohorivka, Vesele, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Stupochky, Druzhba and New-York in Donetsk Oblast.

On the Avdiivka front, the settlements of Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Heorhiivka, Marinka, Novomykhailivka came under Russian fire.

On the Novopavlivka front, the settlements of Vuhledar, Novoukrainka, Prechystivka, Velyka Novosilka and Neskuchne (Donetsk Oblast) came under artillery fire.

On the Zaporizhzhia front, more than 20 settlements came under Russian fire, including Vremivka in Donetsk Oblast and Poltavka, Malynivka, Huliaipole, Charivne, Novodanylivka in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

On the Kherson front, the city of Kherson as well as Dmytrivka, Mykolaiv Oblast, came under artillery fire. 

The Russians continue to use the civilian infrastructure in the temporarily occupied territory for their own purposes. Thus, the Russian occupiers use the Dniprorudny city hospital, Zaporizhzhia Oblast, as a military hospital. Medicines and surgeons were brought from the Russian Federation.

The Russian invaders continue to put pressure on the citizens of Ukraine and violate human rights. In particular, in Starobilsk, Luhansk Oblast, the Russian occupation authorities are forcing people to send children aged six and over to a so-called Cossack-cadet corps for supposedly "proper patriotic education". People who refuse to send their children to the specified corps are threatened with deprivation of parental rights.

The training of Russian troops continues on the training grounds of the Republic of Belarus. At the same time, in the border areas with Ukraine, the Russians keep certain units and do not stop mortar and artillery attacks on Ukrainian settlements, including Kliusy and Yeline in Chernihiv Oblast; Katerynivka, Vovkivka, Oleksandrivka and Volfyne in Sumy Oblast; and Veterynarne, Neskuchne, Ternova, Ohirtseve, Vovchansk and Budarky in Kharkiv Oblast.
