Operational information on June 18, 2022 regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine

It has been the one hundred fifteenth (115th) day since the heroical resistance of the Ukrainians against a Russian military invasion begins.

The situation is not significantly different in the Volyn-Polissia and Siverskyi directions. The Russian army plans to lay more railway branches in order to restore railway overpasses and supply routes. Russian occupiers attacked civilian infrastructure in the Kozacha Lopan and Petrivka areas, Korobochkine and Pryshyb.

The main enemy’s efforts in the Sloviansk direction continue to be focused on the offensive towards the city of Sloviansk. Fighting continues. The aggressor conducted systematic artillery bombardment in the areas surrounding the settlements of Dibrivne and Dolyna as well as Krasnopillia and Hrushuvakha. The Russian enemy attempted to resume assault operations in the Krasnopillia area. Fighting continues.

The Russian troops are still focusing their efforts in the Donetsk direction on the Siverskodonetsk, Bakhmut directions. They were not active in Lyman. Russian soldiers launched artillery at Sydorov, and Maiaky areas.

The Russian army continues firing rocket-propelled and artillery at Ukrainian troops and civilian infrastructure in the Siverskodonetsk area. Enemy units attempted to improve the tactical situation by attacking outside the city of Siverskodonetsk. However, they were unsuccessful. In the Bakhmut direction, the Russian army continues to fire rocket-propelled grenade launchers and artillery at Ukrainian troops and civilian infrastructure near Lysychansk, Metolkino, Ustynivka, Voronovo and Troitske, Zolote, Spirne, Berestove, Soledar, Klynove. The enemy was also hit with losses not far from Hirske and Berestove. The occupiers fled after a series of failed assaults.

The fire damage caused by the Defense Forces of Ukraine resulted in significant losses for Russian units of the 11th Separate Motorized Rifle Regiment of 1st Army Corps. They were not able to take active action in the Avdiyivka, Kurahivka and Novopavlivka directions. Russian soldiers used barrel and jet artillery to attack civilian infrastructure in the settlements Kamianka and Avdiyivka as well as Volodymyrivka and Novosilka.

To deter Ukrainian troops, the Russian army used artillery, mortars, rocket-propelled and grenades to attack the settlements of Shyroke and Blahodatne as well as Shevchenkove and Prybuzke in the South Buh direction. The enemy is also trying to upgrade the engineering equipment at the advanced positions, and mine the Inhulets River’s dangerous areas.
