  • Volyn, Poliske, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna directions: no Russian offensive groups were identified. Russian troops undergo military training on various training grounds in Belarus. Moreover, Russia maintains military presence in the areas close to the border with Ukraine; maintains cross-border shelling of Ukrainian settlements with mortars and artillery systems. In particular, Klyus and Yelina (Chernihiv oblast); Katerynivka, Vovkivka, Oleksandrivka, and Volfyne (Sumy oblast); and Veterynarne, Neskuchne, Ternova, Ohirtseve, Vovchansk, and Budarka (Kharkiv oblast) were subjects to cross-border attacks.
  • Kupyansk direction: the vicinities of Dvorichne, Ivanivka, Kupyansk, Kislivka, Kotlyarivka, Krokhmalny, and Pischany (Kharkiv oblast); Novoselivka and Stelmakhivka (Luhansk oblast) came under fire.
  • Lyman direction: the Russian army shelled Nevske and Dibrova (Luhansk oblast); Terny and Serebryanka (Donetsk oblast).
  • Bakhmut direction: tank and artillery shelling took place in the vicinities of  Verhknokamyanske, Spirne, Bilohorivka, Vesele, Bakhmut, Ivanovske, Stupochki, Druzhba, and New York (Donetsk oblast).
  • Avdiivka direction: Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Heorgiivka, Maryinka, and Novomykhailivka came under Russian fire.
  • Novopavisk direction: Vuhledar, Novoukrayinka, Prechistivka, Velyka Novosilka, and Neskuchne (Donetsk oblast) were hit by artillery fire.
  • Zaporizhzhia direction: more than 20x settlements came under Russian fire, in particular, Vremivka in the Donetsk Oblast and Poltavka, Malynivka, Hulyaipole, Charivne, and Novodanilivka (Zaporizhzhia oblast).
  • Kherson direction: the city of Kherson, as well as Dmytrivka (Mykolaiv oblast) were subjects to artillery attack.

The Russian army continues to use civilian infrastructure in the temporarily captured territories for its own purposes. Thus, Russian troops use the city hospital of Dniprorudny (Zaporizhzhia oblast) as a military hospital. Medicines and surgeons were brought from the Russian Federation.

Russian soldiers continue to put pressure on the citizens of Ukraine, thus violating human rights. In particular, in Starobilsk (Luhansk oblast) Russian authorities force people to send children aged 6 and over to a so-called Cossack-cadet corps for supposedly “proper patriotic education”. People who refuse to send their children to the specified corps are threatened with deprivation of parental rights.

Ukrainian missile and artillery units attacked 3x concentrations of Russian troops and 1x command post.
