Ukrainian fighters used aerial reconnaissance units to track the Russians' movements and target the occupiers with fire. Drone operators indicated the coordinates of the movement routes of Russian forces and the facilities occupied by them.

As a result, the tank crew of the Armed Forces destroyed a building where the occupiers were staying, killing at least five Russian soldiers. The border guards and mortar launchers fired on Russian forces ahead of the front edge of the defensive positions, killing about two dozen invaders.

Attempts to break through the defence lasted until noon, during which time the border guards repelled two assaults on their positions.
