Ukrainian troops repelled six enemy attempts to advance towards Lyptsi, as well as an assault on the Pletenivka-Vovchansk axis. The situation remains tense in and around Starytsia, where one attack from the area of Novaya Tavolzhanka (Russia) was repelled. Two more attacks from Buhruvatka continue.

Ukrainian defenders are counterattacking and taking measures to strengthen their defences.


On the Kupiansk front, the number of enemy attacks increased to 12. Hostilities continue in and around Synkivka, Ivanivka and Novoiehorivka. Near Berestove, our defenders repelled two enemy assaults. The situation is under control, and measures are being taken to stabilise the situation."

According to the General Staff, the Pokrovsk front remains the hottest along the entire contact line.

Quote: "Since the beginning of the day the number of enemy attacks has increased to 37. The enemy made 15 attempts to advance from Ocheretyne in the areas of Novooleksandrivka, Kalynove, Prohres and Yevhenivka. Heavy fighting continues there. In addition, the Russian invaders continue to try to break through our defences in and around Novoselivka Persha, Sievierne and Netailove.

In some areas, the situation requires our troops to manoeuvre. The defence forces are taking measures to repel the enemy and stabilise the situation."
