Quote: "Occupation forces are concentrating their main efforts on conducting offensive operations on the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka fronts.


There was a complete lack of coordination and interaction among servicemen of the Russian occupation forces and mercenaries of the so-called Wagner Group (PMC) during hostilities in the vicinity of Bakhmut.

Over the past 24 hours, our units have repelled the occupiers’ attacks near the settlements of Verkhnokamianske, Vasiukivka, Paraskoviivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Kamianka, Sieverne, Pervomaiske, Vesele, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Pobieda and Novomykhailivka in Donetsk Oblast. 

Enemy forces conducted 4 missile strikes on civilian infrastructure facilities in Kharkiv [Kharkiv Oblast] and Druzhkivka, Donetsk Oblast, and carried out 56 attacks using multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), hitting, in particular, Kharkiv’s civilian infrastructure. There were casualties.


The threat of Russian airstrikes and missile strikes remains high throughout Ukraine."
