The Russians aggressor does not abandon its intentions to occupy Ukraine. Despite significant losses, the enemy continues offensive operations in Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Marinka, and Shakhtarsk directions. According to the General Staff data, the Armed Forces of Ukraine repelled 102 enemy attacks in the indicated directions over the past day.
The Russians Federation continues to use terror tactics, indiscriminately shells populated settlements, thereby grossly violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law.
“Over the past day, the enemy launched three missile strikes, in particular, on a civilian infrastructure object in the town of Slovyansk, Donetsk region. Also, the enemy launched eight airstrikes and 49 MLRS attacks,” the General Staff reported.

The invaders made futile attempts to go on the offensive in the areas of Dvorichna, Nevske, Chervonopopivka, Kreminna, Dibrova, Bilohorivka, and Verkhniokamyanske settlements. The areas of Dvorichna, Zapadne, Masiutivka, Kupyansk, Krokhmalne, Pishchane, and Cherneshchyna in Kharkiv region; Novoselivske, Makiivka, Nevske, Dibrova, Bilohorivka in Luhansk region; Siversk and Spirne in Donetsk region came under enemy artillery fire.

The Russians invaders continue to plunder the temporarily captured territories. Recently, in Enerhodar, the occupiers began to remove educational equipment used to improve the qualifications of personnel from the educational and training center of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.
Given the huge manpower losses in the war, the enemy uses alternative sources of personnel replenishment. So, last week, a train for the transportation of inmates was moving towards Donetsk region. Convicted women were in one of the cars.
Over the past day, Ukraine’s Air Force hit an enemy anti-aircraft missile system and launched six strikes on personnel and military equipment clusters.
The missile and artillery units struck an enemy command post, two personnel and military equipment clusters, two ammunition depots, and a fuel depot.
