The courageous Ukrainian people’s resistance to a Russian military invasion is still going strong on day 195.

The Russian Federation is still concentrating its efforts on taking complete control of the Donetsk oblast while retaining the temporarily taken districts in the Kherson, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Mykolayiv oblasts in Ukraine.

Russian massive air and missile attacks on military and civilian facilities across the entirety of Ukraine are still a possibility.

Russian Kalibr sea-based cruise missile ships are still prepared for attack in the Black Sea.

Russia conducted over 25 airstrikes and over 40 MLRS assaults today with the intention of striking military and civilian targets on Ukrainian territory.

The Zalyman area in Kharkiv, and also Dmytrivka, Bohorodychne, Zaitseve, Kodema, Soledar, Yakovlivka, Krasnohorivka, and Dorozhnianka in Donetsk, were also the targets of Russian attacks.

There hasn’t been much of a shift in the Volyn and Polissia directions.

Ukrainian border regions of communities in the Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts were bombarded by Russia in the Siverskyi direction.

Russian troops continued to shell military and civilian infrastructure in other directions of Ukraine, employing available fire damage methods, including in the Kharkiv direction, they shelled the urban areas of the settlements of Udy, Odnorobivka, Sosnivka, Dementiyivka, Nove, Pytomnyk, Borshchova, Ruska Lozova, Ruski Tyshky, Petrivka, Momotove, Bayrak, Slobozhanske.

Krasnopillia, Virnopillia, Dibrivne, and Bohorodychne that are located in the direction of Sloviansk; Donetske, Piskunivka, Kryva Luka, Sivers’k, and Spirne that are located in the direction of Kramatorsk; Mykolayivka, Vesele, Bilohorivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Kodema, Zaytseve and others.

Oleksandrivka, Avdiyivka, Vodiane, Krasnohorivka, and Mariyinka that are all in the direction of Avdiyivka;

Vilne Pole, Vremivka, Novomyhailivka, and Kermenchyk that are located in the Novopavlivskyi direction;

Zelene Pole, Novosilka, Novopil, Huliaypole, Chervone, and Kamianske are all in the direction of Zaporizhia.

Russia is focusing on keeping control of previously-occupied lines and positions in the direction of South Buh, continuing to shell the communities of Kvitneve, Shevchenkove, Lyubomirivka, Novohrihorivka, Posad Pokrovske, Ukrayinka, Prybuzke, Lymany, Lupareve, Myrne, Oleksandrivka, and Tavriyske in Ukraine.

The command of the military units of the 1st army corps of the Russian occupying forces is reportedly taking steps to forcibly transfer the conscript service personnel to a contract that prevents their release from military service within 3 years, according to information that is currently available. Additionally, this category does not qualify for one-time incentives for signing such contracts, which has a negative impact on the Russian occupiers’ psychological well-being and morale.

The Russian army is still breaking the law in the Kherson oblast. As a result, the Kakhovska power plant was shut off by the Russian occupiers, resulting in a partial blackout in the oblasts of Kherson and Zaporizhzhya.

The Ukrainian defence troops keep up their defensive operation, uphold the established limits, and stop the Russian invaders from moving further into Ukrainian territory.

In the vicinity of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Hryhorivka, Pokrovske, Bakhmutske, Lozove, Spartak, Soledar, Zaytseve, and Semyhiria, Ukrainian defenders successfully repelled Russian offensive attempts, and in the direction of Kramatorsk, they achieved tactical success and drove the Russian occupants out of the positions they had previously held.

The Air Force Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces successfully defends important targets from Russian missile and air assaults.

In support of the land units’ operations today, the Ukrainian Defense Forces’ aviation launched over fifteen attacks with the intention of obliterating the Russian soldiers, combat and special equipment, as well as other military assets.

The Ukrainian Defense Forces’ artillery and missile units continue to fire in support of the activities of the land-based military formations.
Updated data shows that Russian losses have been verified. The Russian invaders suffered more than one hundred personnel killed and injured as a consequence of a successful fire strike in the vicinity of the Kupiansk hamlet in the Kharkiv region, and 2 combat vehicles were also destroyed.

More than thirty Russian military members and 3 tanks were hit in Kherson, while 6 hostile vehicles and an anti-aircraft missile complex were destroyed around the Antoniv bridge and crossing.

As a result of the Ukrainian Defense Forces’ effective efforts, crossings in the Kherson region were disabled, and the Russian attempts to continue the movement of soldiers across the Dnipro River were once more defeated.
