During the past day, the Russian occupiers launched a missile strike on the territory of Ukraine, using 17 cruise and two ballistic missiles. As a result of combat work by the air defence forces and means of the Air Forces, nine cruise missiles were destroyed. In addition, the enemy launched 39 air strikes and carried out 49 attacks from multiple-launch rocket systems on the positions of Ukrainian troops and on settlements. Unfortunately, there were civilian casualties, and residential buildings, religious buildings and other civilian infrastructure facilities were destroyed.

The likelihood of missile and air strikes throughout Ukraine remains high.

The enemy continues concentrating its main efforts on the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Marinka fronts, and heavy fighting continues there. There were 35 combat engagements over the past day."
