The valiant Ukrainian people have continued to repel a Russian military assault for the 204th day.
Russia is still concentrating its efforts on attempting to totally control the Donetsk oblast, hold the territory it has taken, and obstruct Ukrainian soldiers’ ability to move around freely in some regions.
The Russian army is conducting illegal aerial reconnaissance, pounding Ukrainian positions along the contact line, and attempting to organize forces into distinct directions. All around Ukraine, there is still a risk of airstrikes and missile attacks.
In violation of the laws of war, international humanitarian law, and tranquil residential areas and civic infrastructure, Russian troops continue to strike these targets. Air raids, missile attacks, and MLRS damaged the infrastructure of more than 20 communities. Kryvyi Rih, Nikopol, Bilohirka, Mariyinka, Olhivske, Oskil, Mykolayiv, Ochakiv, Liubomirivka, Huliaipole, and Myrne are some of them in particular.
Russia launched 5 missile strikes, 5 air strikes, and 23 other attacks on military and civilian targets on Ukrainian territory today.
There hasn’t been much of a shift in the Volyn and Polissia directions.
In other directions, Russian soldiers fired at the infrastructure with tanks, mortars, and artillery of various calibers:
- in the Siversky direction, in the areas around the settlements of Halahanivka in Chernihiv oblast, and Kindrativka in Sumy oblast;
- in the Kharkiv direction, in the areas around Vovchansk, Hoptivka, Baranivka, Vysoka Yaruga, Neskuchne,
- Kupiansk, in the direction of Sloviansk;

- Sukha Balka, Mykolayivka Druha, Zaytseve, Odradivka, Soledar, Yakovlivka, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, and Vesela Dolyna are in the direction of Bakhmut.
Along the whole line of engagement, Russia inflicted fire damage in the direction of South Buh. Additionally, it did 48 flights while conducting illegal aerial reconnaissance of the UAV.
Russia’s losses in the direction of Slobozhansk have been verified to be significant. As a result, the 2nd army corps of the Russian forces’ 202nd and 204th rifle regiments, which took part in the fighting, were swiftly removed to the temporarily held area of the Luhansk oblast and are now subject to disbandment. The mobilization reserve’s units are divided up with the remaining personnel. A children’s hospital is immediately being converted into a military hospital due to the significant number of injured in the community of Novoayidar.
Generally speaking, the military and political leaders of the Russian Federation decided to increase the reserve for the war in Ukraine at the expense of prisons, state-owned businesses, and institutions. They also decided to remove the restrictions on conscription for large families and compel the formation of regional battalions on a forced basis.
Attacks by the Russian Federation were effectively defeated by Ukrainian defense troops in the towns of Mayorsk, Zayitseve, and Vesela Dolyna.
Today, the Ukrainian Forces’ aviation carried out 18 attacks against the locations where Russia’s personnel and equipment are gathered in order to assist the activities of ground formations. It has been determined that 5 locations for anti-aircraft missile systems, 3 strongholds, and 10 regions where Russian soldiers concentrated their human resources.
