The Russian Federation continues to disregard the laws and conventions of warfare, employing tactics of terror, launching missile and aviation strikes, and carrying out shelling from multiple launch rocket systems not only on military targets but also on numerous civilian objects within our state.

During the past 24 hours, there have been 57 armed clashes. In total, the enemy delivered 5 missile strikes and 75 aviation strikes and conducted 56 shelling attacks from multiple launch rocket systems on our troops' positions and civilian settlements. Unfortunately, due to Russian terrorist attacks, there have been casualties and injuries among the civilian population. Private residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure have suffered damage and destruction.

The following areas were subjected to aviation strikes:

The frontline situation

The operational situation in the Volyn and Polissia directions remains relatively stable.

In the Siversk and Slobozhanske directions, the enemy maintains a military presence in border areas, actively engages in subversive activities to prevent our troops from being redeployed to critical areas, and increases the density of mine and explosive barriers along the state border in the Belgorod region.

In turn, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue their assault operations south of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region, inflicting losses on the enemy in personnel and equipment and consolidating their positions on the achieved lines.

In the Avdiivka direction, the enemy, with aviation support, continues its attempts to encircle Avdiivka. However, our soldiers are steadfastly holding the defense, inflicting significant losses on the occupiers. The enemy's offensive actions in the areas of the settlements of Siverske and Pervomaiske in the Donetsk region were unsuccessful, with 7 enemy attacks repelled by the Defense Forces.
