In Ukraine, there were 98 combat incidents on the front line within a day. The enemy intensified attacks on the Kupiansk direction and targeted a series of cities in the Donetsk and Kherson regions with missile fire, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Russian attacks

Overall, the adversary launched eight missile strikes, using guided anti-aircraft missiles (S-300) targeting civilian infrastructure in Myrnohrad, Novohradivka in the Donetsk region, and Antonivka in the Kherson region. Additionally, there were four aerial attacks and 78 rocket barrages from reactive volley fire systems targeting our military positions and residential areas.

As a result of Russian terrorist attacks, unfortunately, there are casualties and injuries among the civilian population. Multi-story and private houses, schools, kindergartens, a shopping center, and other civilian infrastructure have suffered destruction and damage.

In the morning, Russian occupiers launched a ballistic missile Iskander targeting the civilian infrastructure of Sloviansk in the Donetsk region.
