Unfortunately, Russian attacks have resulted in civilian casualties and injuries. Private residential and apartment buildings, as well as other civilian infrastructure, were destroyed and damaged.

The operational situation on the Volyn and Polissia fronts remained unchanged. No signs of the formation of offensive groups were detected. Designated units of the Belarusian armed forces are performing tasks in the areas bordering Ukraine.

On the Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, the Russians are maintaining their military presence in the border areas, conducting intense sabotage activities in order to prevent the transfer of Ukrainian troops to vulnerable areas and increasing the density of minefields along the state border in Belgorod Oblast. The Russians also conducted an air strike near Vesele in Kharkiv Oblast. About 25 settlements came under Russian artillery and mortar fire.

On the Kupiansk front, the defence forces repelled four Russian attacks near Synkivka in Kharkiv Oblast, where the Russians failed to improve their tactical situation.

According to the General Staff, despite significant losses, the Russians did not abandon their attempts to dislodge Ukrainian units from their positions. During the past day, they attacked positions of the Ukrainian troops nine times, but Ukrainian units kept holding their positions, inflicting significant losses on the Russians.

Over the course of the day, the aviation of Ukraine’s Defence Forces struck nine areas where Russian personnel were concentrated.

Units from Rocket Forces and Artillery hit an area where Russian personnel, weapons and military equipment were concentrated, and also two Russian artillery pieces.
