At the same time, the Ukrainian Defence Forces continue to conduct the offensive operation on the Melitopol front, consolidating their positions and carrying out counter-battery operations.

Russian occupation forces continue to actively steal from and abuse civilians. For example, their unit from the Republic of Buryatia of the Russian Federation arrived in Tokmak, Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Members of this unit systematically check local residents for papers proving the right to live in their homes. If they find that there are no such documents, they take away all property and housing under the guise of "confiscation" and physically abuse the outraged local residents.
