During the past day, there were more than 30 combat clashes on the front line. The defense forces destroyed 7 command posts, an ammunition depot, a radio electronic warfare station, and several artillery pieces, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Enemy attacks

The enemy conducted 13 missile strikes and 64 aviation strikes and launched over 50 shelling attacks from rocket artillery systems. These attacks targeted both our military positions and civilian objects within our state.

During the past day, the occupiers carried out 20 drone kamikaze attacks of the Shahed-136/131 type, with 16 of them being successfully neutralized by the air defense systems of Ukraine. Additionally, the civilian population of the cities of Sumy and Kryvyi Rih suffered from ruthless missile strikes.

The enemy's aviation strikes impacted the settlements of Bologivka, Petropavlivka, Kyslivka in the Kharkiv region, Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region, Yampolivka, Zarichne, Siversk, Vesele, Bila Hora, Pivnichne, Stepove, Krasnohorivka, Urozhaiane, Staromayorske in the Donetsk region, Novodarivka, Chervone, Mala Tokmachka, Chervona Krynytsia, Robotyne, Yasna Polyana in the Zaporizhzhia region, Kozatske, Odradokamianka in the Kherson region.

Over 50 populated areas in the Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions were subjected to enemy artillery fire.

The frontline situation

In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the operational situation remains largely unchanged.

In the Siversk and Slobozhanskyi directions, the enemy continues to maintain troop groupings to cover the state border and conducts active subversive activities in border areas to prevent the redeployment of our forces to critical directions.

In the area of responsibility of the Joint Forces Operation "Khortytsia" In the Kupiansk, Lyman, and Bakhmut directions, the enemy persists in attempts to breach the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the areas of Synkivka, Novooehorivka, Orihovo-Vasylivka, and southeast of Dibrova. They also seek to regain control over positions in the areas of Klishchiivka, Andriivka, and Kurdiumivka.

To replenish their irrevocable losses, the enemy continues to redeploy reserves to the mentioned directions and forms assault groups primarily from among the prisoners. In this way, the Kremlin continues to rid itself of unwanted members of its society.

In the area of responsibility of the Joint Forces Operation "Tavria" on the Avdiivka, Maryinka, and Shakhtarsk directions, the Defense Forces have the initiative, continue to press the enemy, conduct assault operations, and inch by inch reclaim our land.

Ukrainian defenders successfully hold the defense near Avdiivka and Maryinka, where the enemy made over 10 unsuccessful attempts within a day to displace our units from their positions. Moreover, all enemy attacks in the areas of Novokalynove, Krasnohorivka, and Prechystivka in Donetsk region ended with significant losses for the occupiers, both in terms of personnel and equipment.

In the Melitopol direction, the defending forces continue their offensive operation, inflicting significant losses in personnel and equipment on the occupying forces, forcing the enemy to retreat from their positions.

In turn, the enemy is redeploying the most combat-capable units from the composition of airborne troops to this direction and attempting to regain lost ground. For example, in the area of Robotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region, the Defense Forces repelled more than 10 such attempts.

In the Kherson direction, our defenders continue to hold the captured positions on the left bank of the Dnipro, engage in counter-battery combat, destroy ammunition depots, and successfully strike at the enemy's rear areas.

Enemy losses

During the past day, the Defense Forces aviation conducted 9 strikes on areas of enemy personnel, weapons, and military equipment concentrations, 1 command post, and 1 position of an enemy anti-aircraft missile system.

Units of the missile troops and artillery, as well as unmanned systems, struck 1 ammunition depot, 9 artillery systems, 6 command posts, and 1 enemy radio-electronic warfare station.
