According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian enemy is focusing its efforts on restraining the actions of the units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine. The enemy continues to redeploy personnel and military equipment to replenish units that suffered losses. It is expected that some enemy units will be redeployed from the territory of the Republic of Belarus after they acquire combat capabilities.
Over the past 24 hours, the units of the Defence Forces repelled the occupiers’ attacks in the areas of Yakovlivka, Soledar, Bakhmut, Andriivka, Novobakhmutivka, Opytne, Vodiane, Pervomaiske, Nevelske and Novomykhailivka in the Donetsk region.
“The enemy launched four missile attacks on civilian objects in Rozumivka, Zaporizhzhia region, and Musiivka, Dnipropetrovsk region, launched more than 50 MLRS attacks on the positions of our troops and settlements. There is still a threat of missile strikes by the Russian occupiers on critical infrastructure facilities throughout Ukraine,” the General Staff noted.
In the direction of Siversky, mortar and artillery shelling was recorded near the settlements of Yanzhulivka, Mykolaivka and Halahanivka in the Chernihiv region and Vilna Sloboda in the Sumy region.
In the Slobozhansky direction, the areas of the settlements of Strilecha, Starytsia, Ohirtseve, Vovchansk, Bochkove, Budarky, Chuhunivka and Ambarne, Kharkiv region, came under mortar and rocket artillery fire.
The enemy is defending itself in the direction of Kupyansk and fired artillery on the areas of Bolohivka, Kamyanka, Kupyansk, Kurylivka, Tabaivka, Krokhmalne, and Berestove in the Kharkiv region.
In direction of Lyman, the enemy is focusing its main efforts on conducting offensive operations. They fired from the entire range of artillery on the areas of the settlements of Makiivka, Nevske and Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region and Yampolivka and Torske in the Donetsk region.
In the direction of Bakhmut and Avdiivka, the ruscists continue to focus their main efforts on conducting offensive actions. Objects in the areas of Serebrianka, Spirne, Yakovlivka, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Opytne, Klishchiivka, Andriivka, Kurdiumivka, Vesele, Avdiivka, Vodiane, Pervomaiske, Krasnohorivka, Kurakhove, Marinka and Novomykhailivka in the Donetsk region were hit with tanks and artillery.
The occupiers are defending themselves in the Zaporizhzhia direction. The invaders are firing mortars, tube and rocket artillery on the positions of the Defence Forces and the populated settlements of the Zaporizhzhia region, which are not far from the contact line.
In the direction of Kryvyi Rih and Kherson, the Russian forces are carrying out positional defence, firing artillery on the Ukrainian troops and settlements on the right bank of the Dnipro River, particularly in the city of Kherson.
The enemy continues to suffer significant losses. A strike on an enemy object in the area of Enerhodar settlement was confirmed. On 26 November, six units of military equipment of various types were destroyed and about 30 service members were injured. About 80 invaders were injured in the areas of Polohy and Chernihivka in the Zaporizhzhia region. The number of killed occupiers is being specified.
About 30 units of damaged military equipment of the enemy under repair were spotted in the village of Hola Prystan, Kherson region.
Over the past day, the missile and artillery units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine hit four enemy personnel, weapons and military equipment clusters, as well as another important military object of the enemy.
“To discredit the Defence Forces, the Russian occupiers shell populated areas, shifting the responsibility to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, the enemy spreads misinformation claiming that Ukrainian citizens from the liberated territories are detained by the Ukrainian military to ramp up the number of people for prisoner swaps, accusing them of cooperation with the occupiers,” the General Staff emphasised.
