Russian troops began to use fewer kamikaze drones in the Tavria direction. At the same time, the terrorists continue to drop guided aerial bombs, reports Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, the commander of the Tavria Operational Strategic Group.

"For two days in a row, a decrease in the number of kamikaze drones has been recorded. However, the enemy continues to drop anti-aircraft missiles. Ground infantry attacks continue. The enemy continues to lose hundreds of manpower," Tarnavskyi says.

According to him, there are more and more cases in various directions when Russians refuse to participate in active offensive actions. The occupiers continue to replenish their units with prisoners.

"This so-called special contingent is considered by the Russian command to be expendable material. And without pity it throws in meat assaults," the commander notes.

At the same time, the Ukrainian defenders are firmly holding the defense in the Avdiivka direction. The enemy's offensive actions east of Novobakhmutivka, northeast of Berdychiv, in the areas of Avdiivka, Opytne, Severne, and south of Tonenke were unsuccessful - 23 attacks were repulsed.

The offensive operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Melitopol direction is also ongoing.

Russia's losses

The total losses of the occupiers in the operational zone of the Tavria Operational Strategic Group amounted to 374 people.

Ukrainian fighters also destroyed one tank and an ammunition depot of the Russians.
