Quote: "The Russian Federation has been pursuing its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine for a year now. It is focusing its main efforts on conducting offensive operations on the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk fronts.


Over the past 24 hours, our defence forces have repelled nearly 100 attacks on those fronts."

"Mobile service operators have disabled internet access in some parts of the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk Oblast in order to prevent [local residents] from handing over information about the actions of the Russian occupation forces [to the Ukrainian military] and to suppress those residents who maintain a patriotic attachment to Ukraine. Internet is expected to be disconnected across all temporarily occupied territories in Luhansk Oblast."

Details: Russian occupation forces have carried out 10 missile strikes and 31 airstrikes over the past 24 hours, as well as over 40 attacks using multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS), damaging civilian facilities in Kharkiv and Kherson oblasts. There are civilian casualties and fatalities.
