Quote from General Staff: "Over the day, Ukraine’s Air Force carried out 13 strikes on clusters of occupiers' personnel and military equipment and two strikes on the positions of anti-aircraft missile systems.


The Air Defence Forces shot down three enemy UAVs over the past day: two Orlan-10s and an Orion.

The units of Rocket Forces and Artillery hit two enemy command posts, two clusters of manpower, an ammunition dump and an enemy air defence position."

Details: In turn, the Russian army, trying to take full control of the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, continues to focus its main efforts on conducting offensive operations on the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka fronts.

According to Ukraine’s General Staff, the Russians launched 41 air and three missile strikes over the past day, two of which targeted civilian infrastructure in Kramatorsk, Donetsk Oblast. They also carried out 32 attacks using multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS), including those on civilian infrastructure in Donetsk and Kherson oblasts.

The threat of further Russian air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine remains high.

There were no significant changes on the Volyn, Polissia, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, and no offensive groups of the Russians were detected.

More than 20 settlements came under Russian fire, including Hai (Chernihiv Oblast); Seredyna Buda, Brusky, Atynske and Stepok (Sumy Oblast); Udy, Veterynarne, Kozacha Lopan, Mali Prokhody, Starytsia and Dvorichna (Kharkiv Oblast).

On the Kupiansk and Lyman fronts, the settlements of Kupiansk and Pishchane in Kharkiv Oblast and Novoselivske, Stelmakhivka, Chervonopopivka, Dibrova and Serebrianske forest in Luhansk Oblast came under Russian fire.

On the Bakhmut front, the settlements of Mykolaivka, Spirne, Vesele, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Krasna Hora, Chasiv Yar, Bakhmut, Pivnichne and Maiorsk in Donetsk Oblast came under the fire of the invaders.

On the Avdiivka and Novopavlivka fronts, the Russians deployed tanks, mortars and artillery to fire in and around Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Vodiane, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Bohoiavlenka, Novomykhailivka, Zolota Nyva, Prechystivka and Vuhledar in Donetsk Oblast.

On the Zaporizhzhia front, the settlements of Vremivka and Novopil in Donetsk Oblast and Olhivske, Huliaipole, Stepove, Shcherbaky, Novoandriivka, Orikhiv and Charivne in Zaporizhzhia Oblast came under Russian fire.

On the Kherson front, more than 16 settlements came under invaders’ fire, including Kachkarivka, Tokarivka, Vesele, Antonivka, Berehove and Kherson.  

Quote from General Staff: "The enemy continues to suffer losses. In order to conceal the number of occupiers killed, the Russian invaders set up a mobile crematorium on the territory of the Prydniprovska Biotes enterprise in Tokmak, Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Local residents complain about the constant stench of corpses in the southeastern district of the city, especially at night."
