The Russian army is regrouping its units in separate directions.

Strikes civilian infrastructure and peaceful residential areas, violating international humanitarian law, laws and customs of war.

There remains the threat of air and missile strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine. During this day, Russian forces launched 6 rocket and 7 air strikes, carried out more than 23 MLRS shellings.

Objects and civilian population of more than 25 settlements were damaged by Russian strikes. Among others, these are Zaporizhzhya, Shepetivka, Siversk, Bilohorivka, Olhivske and Hoptivka. In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the situation remains without significant changes.

Russian soldiers did not carry out offensive actions in the Novopavlivskyi and Zaporizhzhya directions. The infrastructure of more than twenty settlements was damaged by Russian shelling. In particular, Novoukrainka, Vremivka, Poltavka and Novopolya.

In the Southern Buh region, more than thirty settlements near the contact line were damaged by fire. Among them are Pravdyne, Myrne, Kiselyvka, Kobzartsi and Velike Artakove.

Over the past day, units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine repelled Russian attacks in the areas of Soledar, Bakhmutske, Yakovlivka, Odradivka, Zaitseve, Bakhmut, Krasnohorivka, Pobyeda, Vodyane and Lyubomirivka settlements.

According to available information, the partial mobilization announced by the military-political leadership of the Russian federation actually “absorbs” small settlements in remote regions of Russia. Conscription is carried out by the method of roundups, practically all male population of conscription age is forcibly taken to military commissariats. At the same time, in Moscow, the demobilization plan, which accounts for less than 0.2 percent of the population in districts, has not been fulfilled by half.

As before, Russian troops are using scorched earth tactics in Ukraine. Thus, during another chaotic retreat, Russia blew up the dam, which caused the settlement of Raihorodok to flood. There is a mass destruction of archives and copies of documents, especially those containing the history of the occupation, in Kadiivka. In Svatovo, the main infrastructure facilities, buildings and territories have already been mined.

Aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine carried out 11 strikes during the day. The destruction of one stronghold, 5 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 5 anti-aircraft missile systems of the Russian army was confirmed. In addition, Ukrainian air defense units shot down 5 Russian UAVs, including two Shahed-136 and one Mohajer-6.

Missile troops and artillery during the current day hit 19 areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, 2 ammunition depots and 6 artillery means.
