Operational report August 05, 2022 by the General Staff of AFU on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

The courageous Ukrainian people’s resistance to a Russian military invasion is still going on day 163.

Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus units are tasked with threatening the Belarusian-Ukrainian border in the Brest and Gomel areas in the Volyn and Polissya directions (Ukraine). This country’s special operations forces conducted a combat readiness check on certain of their units.

The Russian army shelled the civilian infrastructure in the Siverskyi direction, targeting the communities of Zaliznyi Mist, Hai, Hremiach, and Mihalchyna Sloboda in Chernihiv oblast, and Starykovo in Sumy oblast.

Russian soldiers fired several types of artillery in the direction of Kharkiv, inflicting damage on the communities of Borschova, Bezruky, Velyki Prohody, Ruski Tyshky, Staryy Saltiv, Pryshyb, Tsyrkuny, Mospanove, and Korobochkine.

Russian shelling was reported in the vicinity of Bohorodychne, Mazanivka, Husarivka, Adamivka, Kurulka, Khrestyshche, Sulyhivka, Dovgenke, and Velyka Komyshuvakha in the direction of Sloviansk.

The Russian army is carrying out an offensive operation in the Bakhmut and Avdiyivka directions in the Donetsk oblast. It is attempting to improve the conditions for capturing Soledar and Bakhmut in order to increase the controlled area on the western outskirts of Donetsk.

Siversk, Mykolayivka, Starodubivka, Spirne, Kryva Luka, Verhnyokamyanske, Hryhorivka, Serebrianka, Rayhorodok, and Kalenyky localities all were attacked with Russian artillery firing in the Kramatorsk direction.

Troops of Russia bombarded the military and civilian infrastructure in Ukraine close to Yakovlivka, Kodema, Pokrovskyi, Rozdolivka, Vershyna, Bahmut, and Soledar while moving in the direction of Bahmut. They conducted offensive and attack operations in an effort to strengthen the tactical position, but failed.

Near Pisky, Prechystivka, Shevchenko, Volodymyrivka, Novobahmutivka, Nevelske, Netailove, and Krasnohorivka, the Russian units fired artillery and tanks in the direction of Avdiyivka. Battles go on with offensive actions.

Russian occupiers are concentrating their efforts on halting Ukrainian defence forces’ progress in the direction of South Buh. Russia provides the intensive illegal use of unmanned aerial vehicle reconnaissance.
