Frontline situation

According to the latest information from the Ukrainian Armed Forces General Staff, there were 50 clashes on the frontlines in the last 24 hours. Ukrainian artillery units targeted and successfully hit 2 command centers, 2 personnel concentration areas, 2 artillery emplacements in firing positions, and one enemy electronic warfare station.
