Thirty-four combat engagements occurred over the past 24 hours. The enemy delivered 7 missile strikes and 35 air strikes, attacked the positions of the Ukrainian forces and civilian targets of our state over 56 times using multiple-launch rocket systems."

Details: The Russian occupying forces launched a large-scale air attack using loitering munitions against civilian infrastructure facilities in Odesa and Sumy oblasts. Information on the aftermath of this terrorist act is currently being established.

Russian air strikes targeted the settlements of Popivka, Stepok, Myropillia and Hrabovske in Sumy Oblast; Kyslivka in Kharkiv Oblast; Nadiia and Dibrova in Luhansk Oblast; Spirne, Klishchiivka and Pivnichne in Donetsk Oblast; Robotyne in Zaporizhzhia Oblast; and Odradokamianka in Kherson Oblast.

Over 45 settlements in Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts came under Russian artillery fire.

The operational situation remains without significant changes in the area of responsibility of Operational Command Pivnich (North) on the Volyn and Polissia fronts.

On the Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, the Russians continue to hold groups of forces covering the state border, conduct sabotage activities in the border areas to prevent the deployment of Ukrainian troops to threatened areas, and increase the density of minefields along the state border in Russia's Belgorod Oblast.

The Russian army persists in its attempts to break through the defences of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near the settlements of Orikhovo-Vasylivka in the area of responsibility of the Khortytsia Operational-Strategic Group on the Kupiansk, Lyman and Bakhmut fronts.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Defence Forces had partial success in the area of Klishchiivka in Donetsk Oblast, inflicting heavy losses in military personnel and equipment on the Russian army.

In the area of responsibility of the Tavriia Operational-Strategic Group, Ukrainian forces are steadfastly holding their ground near the settlements of Avdiivka and Marinka, where Russian troops launched over 20 unsuccessful attempts to force Ukrainian units from their positions over the past 24 hours.

Furthermore, all Russian attacks in the areas in and around the settlements of Novomykhailivka in Donetsk Oblast and south of Novodarivka in Zaporizhzhia Oblast turned into significant losses in both military personnel and equipment for the Russians.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Defence Forces keep holding the initiative on the Avdiivka, Marinka and Shakhtarsk fronts, pressuring the Russians, conducting assault operations and reclaiming Ukrainian land.

On the Melitopol front, the Ukrainian Defence Forces carry on their offensive, inflicting significant losses in military personnel and equipment on the Russian occupying army, "forcing them to withdraw from their positions," the General Staff reports.

"Our soldiers have gained partial success in the area of Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia Oblast, following an assault," the report said.

In the area of responsibility of the Odesa Operational-Strategic Group, on the Kherson front, Ukrainian Defence Forces continue counter-battery operations, destroying the logistics, locations and firing positions of Russian units.

Quote: "Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian Air Force carried out nine strikes on areas where Russian military personnel, weapons and equipment were concentrated.

Ukraine's Rocket Forces and Artillery using UAVs destroyed 10 artillery pieces, 2 anti-aircraft missile systems, 1 cluster of Russian military personnel, 1 electronic warfare system, 1 command post and 5 Russian ammunition storage points."
