The two hundred and thirty-first day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian nation to the large-scale Russian invasion has begun. The enemy is trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, is concentrating its efforts on trying to stop the counter-offensive actions of the Defense Forces in separate directions and attempts of offensive actions in the Bakhmut and Avdiiv directions.
The enemy continues shelling the positions of our troops along the contact line, carries out remote mining of the territory in certain areas and conducts aerial reconnaissance.

Objects and civilian population of more than forty settlements were affected by these criminal actions.

The defense-industrial complex of Belarus is already involved in the repair of Russian equipment damaged during hostilities. In addition, the first batch of twenty T-72 tanks was removed from storage and sent to the Belgorod region.
