Quote: "On the Kramatorsk front, enemy assaults near Klishchiiivka were unsuccessful. Fighting continues in the areas of Hryhorivka and Chasiv Yar.

The Pokrovsk front remains the most difficult.  The enemy keeps trying to find weaknesses in our defence, conducting continuous assault operations and trying to break into the combat formations of Ukrainian units. Today they launched 42 attacks, 32 of which were repelled. Fighting continues in the areas of Novooleksandrivka, Yevhenivka, Novoselivka Persha, Yasnobrodivka and Sokil. The defence forces are taking measures to prevent the enemy's advance. 

The aggressor's losses on this front today are estimated to amount to almost 300 occupiers (killed and wounded). One armoured combat vehicle, four vehicles and three enemy cannons were destroyed.

On the Kurakhove front, the number of combat clashes has now increased to 11. The occupiers are concentrating their efforts on Krasnohorivka, where three of their attacks were repelled and four are still ongoing. Enemy activity near Heorhiivka and Paraskoviivka was unsuccessful. Measures are being taken to prevent the occupiers from advancing.

On the Prydniprovske front, the Russian aggressor attacked our units three times on the left bank of the Dnipro River. They were unsuccessful."
