Oleksandr Shtupun, spokesman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
Glory to Ukraine! The two hundred and fifty-third day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian nation to the large-scale Russian invasion continues.
During the current day, the enemy launched 3 missile and 16 air strikes, carried out more than 40 attacks from rocket salvo systems.
Areas of more than 25 settlements were hit by enemy attacks. In particular, these are Pavlograd in Dnipropetrovsk region and Avdiyivka and Vugledar in Donetsk region.
The threat of new strikes and the use of attack UAVs remains, in particular from the territory of the Republic of Belarus.
The situation in the Volyn and Poliske directions has not changed significantly. The Republic of Belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
The enemy shelled in other directions:
in the Siversky direction – from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Vilchyki settlements of Chernihiv region and Stara Huta, Sosnivka and Novovolodymyrivka of Sumy region;
in the Slobozhansk direction – in the areas of the settlements of Gatishche, Kozacha Lopan, Ohirtseve and Strelecha. The enemy used an attack UAV;
in the Kupyansk and Lymansk directions – from mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of Verkhnokamianske, Spirne and Zvanivka settlements;
in the Bakhmut direction – from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Soledar, Opytne, New York, Ozaryanivka and Kurdyumivka;
in the Avdiiv direction – from tanks and various caliber artillery, in the areas of Maryinka, Novomykhailivka, Nevelske and Vodyane settlements;
in the Novopavlovsk and Zaporizhzhya directions – from artillery of various types, in the areas of the settlements of Vugledar, Kamianske and Vremivka.
In the South Buz direction, more than 35 settlements along the contact line suffered fire damage. In addition, the enemy continued to conduct aerial reconnaissance, actively using UAVs. Made more than 30 sorties.
Despite the announced end of partial mobilization, the military leadership of the Russian Federation continues to recruit so-called “volunteers” to participate in the war on the territory of Ukraine. Military commissars received instructions on the further formation of so-called volunteer units. These “volunteers” can become men with cleared criminal records, without age restrictions and in any state of health, except for persons with official disabled status. In order to avoid legal and financial obligations, the conclusion of a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation with such persons is not envisaged.
Previously demobilized personnel have a low level of morale and psychological state, which leads to extraordinary events in places of deployment. Thus, in units of the 57th motorized rifle division of the so-called territorial troops, at the stage of reconciliation in Kazan, more than 15 soldiers and sergeants voluntarily left, and during the redeployment to Ukraine, two more mobilized committed suicide.
In addition, the main problem of already operating occupation units, in addition to private military campaigns, remains the low training of personnel and the rapid failure of military equipment that has been removed from storage and has not undergone appropriate maintenance.
Aviation of the Defense Forces struck the enemy 12 times during the day. 8 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 4 positions of the enemy’s anti-aircraft defense equipment, were affected.
Units of missile forces and artillery of the Defense Forces were struck within a day
3 areas of concentration of manpower, 2 areas of accumulation of weapons and military equipment, 2 ammunition warehouses and other important military facilities of the Russian occupiers.
We believe in the Armed Forces! Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
