The valiant Ukrainian people’s defence against a large-scale invasion by Russian forces is still going strong on day 211th.

Russia’s efforts are still directed at attempting to completely occupy the Donetsk oblast, organizing defence, and maintaining the invaded territory of Ukraine. It also strives to obstruct the Ukrainian Defense Forces’ active operations in certain directions. In addition to taking action to reorganize its soldiers and continuously conducting illegal aerial surveillance, it is furious with our positions along the contact line.

The Russian Federation has violated international humanitarian law, war rules, and customs by launching eight missiles, sixteen airstrikes, and one hundred fifteen anti-aircraft missiles at military and civilian targets on Ukrainian soil in the last 24 hours.

More than forty Ukrainian communities had their infrastructure destroyed as a consequence of Russian forces’ strikes. Siversk, Mariyinka, Vesele, Neskuchne, Yehorivka, Bezimenne, Bilohirka, Myroliubivka, and Visokopillia are some of them in particular.

On the whole area of Ukraine, Russian air and missile attacks remain a possibility.

Regarding the directions of Volyn and Polissya, nothing has altered.

Russia fired from tanks, mortars, and other calibers of artillery in other directions in Ukraine:

  • Senkivka and Huta-Studenetska (Chernihiv oblast) in the direction Siverskyi;
  • Strelecha, Hlyboke, Morohovets, Hatyshche, Vovchansk, Kamianka, Kupiansk and Osykovo in the area Slobozhansk;
  • Sloviansk, Korovii Yar, Bohorodychne, Oleksandrivka, Yarova, Pryshyb, Dibrova, Donetske and Rayhorodok in the Kramatorsk region;
  • Mykolayivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Rozdolivka, Opytne, Yakovlivka, Bilohorivka and Maiorsk in the Bakhmut area;
  • Krasnohorivka, Avdiyivka, Kamianka, Opytne, Mariyinka and Vodiane in the Avdiyivka area;
  • about sixteen Ukrainian settlements were affected by Russian fire in the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhia directions. Among them are Vuhledar, Prechystivka, Huliaypilske, Neskuchne, Vremivka and Novopil.

Russia bombarded over twenty five towns along the contact line in the South Buh direction. Russian troops conducted more than thirty illegal unmanned aerial vehicle missions to conduct reconnaissance, adjust fire, and perform attacks on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure assets.

Russian service members’ conduct in the temporarily controlled Ukrainian territory continues to be characterized by violations of international humanitarian law principles and traditional combat practices. The inhabitants of Honcharivka and Kuzmenivka Ukrainian communities were thus forcefully removed by Russian soldiers from their houses in the Svativ district and transported far into the temporarily seized area of the Luhansk region in order to conceal the Russian engineering tools of the lands.

Units of Ukrainian soldiers have successfully resisted Russian attacks in the communities of Zaytseve, Odradivka, and Novomykhaylivka throughout the course of the last day.

The Ukrainian Air Force of the Defense Forces launched forty one attacks on Russian positions in support of the efforts of the Land Groups. It was established that 15 anti-aircraft missile sites, 4 strongholds, and 21 Russian military equipment and manpower concentration points had been destroyed.

Over the previous day, 24 Russian objects have sustained fire damage from missile soldiers and artillery. In particular, 4 control points of varying levels, 4 sites of military equipment, weapons, and people concentration, 7 ammunition, fuel, and oil material warehouses, warehouses, 4 air defense installations, and artillery facilities fell into the impacted region.

Russia’s complete losses are being made clear.
