Glory to Ukraine! The two hundred and forty-sixth day of the Ukrainian nation’s heroic resistance to the Russian large-scale invasion continues.
During the day, the enemy carried out three airstrikes and launched three attacks from rocket salvo systems.
In the Volyn and Poliske directions, the situation remains without significant changes. The Republic of Belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, providing its territory, airspace and infrastructure. There is still a threat of missile and air strikes, including the use of attack UAVs.
The enemy shelled in other directions:
in the Slobozhansk direction – from the territory of the Russian Federation, using different types of artillery, in the areas of Chuhunivka, Strelecha, Dvorichna, Kamianka, Krasne, Staritsa settlements;
in the Kupyansk direction – from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of Berestov, Kislivka and Figolivka settlements;
in the Lyman direction – from tanks and artillery of various calibers, in the areas of Makiivka, Terny, Torske, Yampolivka, Spirne, Nevske and Zarichne settlements;
in the Bakhmut direction – from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of Andriivka, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Kramatorsk, Soledar and Yakovlivka settlements;
in the Avdiivka direction, the enemy inflicted fire damage from mortars, barrel and rocket artillery in the areas of Avdiivka, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, Novomykhailivka, and Pervomaisky.
On the Novopavlivskyi and Zaporizhzhya directions, the enemy launched artillery fire in the areas of Biloghirya, Vremivka, Zaliznychny, Novopol, Novosilka, Olhivskyi, and Orihiv.
Areas of more than 15 settlements near the contact line were affected by fire in the South Buzka direction.
The issue of material and technical support of units of the Russian occupying forces, which take direct part in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine, remains problematic. Thus, according to available information, the lack of warm clothes led to an increase in the number of cases of theft and looting by servicemen of the armed forces of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territory of the Kherson region.
Mobilized military personnel who arrived in the area to perform combat missions did not undergo appropriate training and lack practical skills in the use of basic types of weapons. This leads to significant losses of enemy manpower.
The unsatisfactory condition of the military equipment that was removed from storage and arrived to replenish current losses was the result of rare cases of desertion and surrender of the occupiers to the Defense Forces of Ukraine. According to preliminary information, a significant part of the weapons and military equipment that the occupiers sent to the Donetsk and Novopavliv directions are of limited or completely unsuitable for combat use. In particular, we are talking about T-62 tanks removed from long-term storage.
During the previous days, the destruction of two ammunition warehouses and a pontoon crossing with military equipment of the enemy in the Kherson region was confirmed.
The aviation of the Defense Forces, of the current day, made 14 strikes on the areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment of the enemy. During the day, air defense units shot down an enemy helicopter and a plane – according to preliminary information, a Ka-52 “Alligator” and a Su-25 attack aircraft.
Units of rocket troops and artillery hit two areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment of the occupiers.
Believe in the Armed Forces! Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
