The courageous resistance of the Ukrainian people against a large-scale Russian military invasion is still going strong on the 213th day.

Russia is still concentrating its efforts on attempting to totally occupy the Donetsk oblast in Ukraine and hold the lands it has invaded, as well as to obstruct the Ukrainian Defense Forces’ ongoing operations in some locations. It carries out illegal aerial surveillance while firing at Ukrainian forces’ positions along the whole contact line and attempting to retake lost ground.

Russian troops never stop attacking the buildings and residences of citizens. All of Ukraine is still in danger of Russian airstrikes and missile attacks.

Russia’s fire hit more than sixty towns. Ochakiv, Solone, Orihiv, and Arhangelske, as well as Pechenihy, Yatskivka, Yarova, Mariyinka, Krasnohorivka, Bilohirka, Myroliubivka, Mykolayiv, Sukhyi Stavok, Nova Hryhorivka, Pivdenne, Mali Shcherbaky, Hryhorivka, Pivnichne. Two citizens were killed and two more were injured as a consequence of a Russian strike on Odesa using attack drones.

Mykolayiv was under Russian rocket fire at night. Civilian casualty information is being made more clear.

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

The Russian army fired from tanks, mortars, and artillery in various directions:

  • New York (Donetsk region), Shevchenko, Berdychi, Avdiyivka, Karlivka, Pervomayske, Vodiane, Opytne, Mariyinka, Paraskoviyivka, Novomykhaylivka, Velyka Novosilka, Zolota Nyva, Vuhledar, Mykilske, Yehorivka and Novoukrayinka on the Avdiyivka, Novopavliv and Zaporizhzhia directions;
  • Pavlivka, Myropilske, Krasnopillia, Mezenivka and Slavhorod (Sumy region) in the Siverskyi direction;
  • Yarova, Rayhorodok, Dibrova, Ozerne, Sivers’k, Spirne, Rozdolivka, Vesele and Bilohorivka in the Kramatorsk district;
  • Yakovlivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Vesela Dolyna, Odradivka, Zaytseve and Maiorsk in the Bakhmut area;
  • Ivashki, Strilecha, Oleksandrivka, Kolodiazne and Dvorichna in the Slobozhanskyi direction.

In the direction of South Buh, more than thirty-five Ukrainian communities came under Russian fire. They include Olhyne, Myroliubivka, Ukrayinka, Lozove, Blahodativka, Shyroke, Suhyi Stavok, Bezimenne, Ternovi Pody, Myrne, Lymany.

Russian authority conducts fake “referendums” in Ukraine’s temporarily conquered and occupied territories. Employees of the “election commissions,” escorted by members of the Russian Federation’s armed forces, gather signatures from local inhabitants directly at their homes due to the low number of visits to so-called “polling stations.”

Men of conscription age who had given up their Ukrainian citizenship and obtained Russian Federation passports began receiving mobilization summonses from the Russian authorities in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson areas.

Russian soldiers continue to loot and provide unlawful acts of violence against civilians. So, based on the information that is currently available, the so-called “kadyrivtsi” in Melitopol have taken possession of a dealer’s warehouse of agricultural equipment and are attempting to sell it.

Ukrainian army successfully resisted Russian attacks throughout the day in the communities of Spirne, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Odradivka, Kurdiumivka, Zaytseve, Maiorsk, Kamyanka, Avdiyivka, and Opytne. Twenty attacks were carried out by Ukrainian aviation. It was determined that seven anti-aircraft missile system locations and eighteen Russian military equipment and manpower concentration points had been struck.

Eight unmanned aerial vehicles and one helicopter belonging to the Russian army were destroyed by Ukrainian air defense troops.

Six control locations, more than two dozen places of Russian equipment and manpower concentration, three air defense positions, and four ammo stores were all struck by missile soldiers and artillery. The details of the loss of Russian soldiers and equipment are being made.
