The eighty-seventh era of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion began. The enemy does not stop conducting offensive operations in the Eastern Operational Zone in order to establish full control over the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and maintain the land corridor with the temporarily occupied Crimea. The shelling continues along the entire line of contact and in the depths of the defense of our troops in the Donetsk operational area and in the Slavic direction.

In the Volyn and Polissya areas, in general, the situation has not changed significantly. There is an increase in the system of electronic intelligence and electronic warfare in the border areas with Ukraine. The threat of missile and air strikes on the objects of our State from the territory of Belarus remains. In the northern direction, the enemy fired on the positions of the Defense Forces in the areas of border Ukrainian settlements in the Sumy and Chernihiv regions.
In the Slobozhansky direction, the main efforts of the enemy are focused on maintaining the occupied frontiers. The enemy launched air strikes on the village of Zirkuni. In the near future, the grouping of troops in the Kharkiv direction is expected to be strengthened by units from the 1st Panzer Army of the Western Military District. In the Slavic direction, the aggressor is trying to resume the offensive. In particular, to ensure the forcing of the river Seversky Donets plans to build a crossing. In the Donetsk direction, the enemy is conducting active hostilities in the Severodonetsk, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Kurakhiv directions.
In the Lyman direction, the occupiers plan to resume offensive operations in the direction of Yampil – Siversk with the forcing of the river Seversky Donets. In particular, in a certain area there is a concentration of special equipment for guiding the pontoon-bridge crossing. To strengthen the grouping of troops and intensify the offensive, the occupiers are transferring additional units. In the Zaporozhye direction, the enemy fired on our troops. In Mariupol, the enemy is taking measures to restore the port. In particular, conducts demining of port infrastructure.
In the South Buz and Tavriya directions, the occupiers focused their main efforts on maintaining the occupied frontiers, conducting reconnaissance, engineering equipment of positions and logistical support of troops. In the Kryvyi Rih and Mykolayiv directions, the enemy does not stop artillery shelling of units of our troops. There is an additional deployment of barrel and jet artillery units.
Ships of the enemy’s Black Sea Fleet in the Black and Azov Seas perform tasks to isolate the area of ​​hostilities, reconnaissance and fire support in the coastal direction. Russian invaders continue to use terror tactics against Ukrainian civilians in the temporarily occupied territories. In particular, they prevent the evacuation of people from the Kherson region to the territory controlled by Ukraine and the opening of humanitarian corridors for the import of food, medicine and evacuation of the elderly, sick and children.
Eleven enemy attacks have been repulsed in Donetsk and Luhansk alone over the past 24 hours, eight tanks, three artillery systems, ten units of armored combat vehicles, three special armored vehicles and six units of enemy vehicles have been destroyed.
Two ground-based UAVs were hit by Air Force air defense units, and the Air Force’s anti-aircraft missile units destroyed one UAV, a cruise missile, and hit one hitherto unidentified target (presumably a helicopter). About the general losses of the enemy – in a separate report later. We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Let’s win together! Glory to Ukraine!
