Quote: "Yesterday, the Russian Federation launched another large-scale missile attack on Ukraine's critical infrastructure facilities and civilian homes. The Russian aggressor is not giving up its intentions regarding the occupation of Ukraine. The enemy continues to use terror tactics, thereby grossly violating the norms of international humanitarian law.


In total, during the previous day, the enemy launched 95 missiles of various types. 34 missiles were destroyed by our defenders. Also, the enemy carried out 31 airstrikes, including the use of eight Shahed-136 UAVs, half of which were shot down, and launched 65 attacks from multiple-launch rocket systems.

The level of missile threat across Ukraine remains high.

The enemy keeps trying to surround the city of Bakhmut. The main efforts are focused on conducting offensive operations on the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk fronts. Our soldiers repelled 102 attacks by invaders during the past day."
