The fifty-seventh era of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion has begun.
The full-scale armed aggression of the Russian Federation against our State continues. The enemy is trying to continue offensive operations in the Eastern Operational Zone in order to establish full control over the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
The enemy continues to launch missile and bomb strikes on military and civilian infrastructure throughout Ukraine.
In the Volyn, Polissya and Seversky directions, the enemy did not take active action, no changes in the condition and position of groups of his troops were detected.
In the Slobozhansky direction, the enemy continues to increase the system of technical support.
In Balakleya, wounded Russian servicemen began to be placed in the city’s polyclinic, despite the fact that a hospital for the Russian military was set up in the building of the local music school. The location of the occupiers in the city polyclinic indicates a significant increase in the number of wounded and problems with their subsequent medical evacuation.
The enemy continues to partially block and shell the city of Kharkiv.
In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, the enemy continues to carry out artillery shelling along the entire line of contact.
In the Kherson region, the invaders plan to organize the forced mobilization of the population for war with Ukraine. At the same time, the occupiers set a goal to completely stop the humanitarian support of the region from the Ukrainian authorities. The terror of the population continues.
Thus, in the village of Zolota Balka, Kherson region, representatives of the Russian occupation forces held a meeting with the local population, where they stated that there would be no more “green corridors” and forbade people to leave the settlement. In addition, they warned that in case of shelling of their positions by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian invaders will start shelling the settlement. The occupiers continue to patrol the apartments and conduct searches.
In the South Bug direction, the enemy is shelling the positions of our troops.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has hit four air targets in the previous day: three unmanned aerial vehicles and one cruise missile.
Nine enemy attacks have been repulsed in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts over the past 24 hours, one tank, ten armored units and two vehicles, one artillery system, two special engineering units, an anti-aircraft missile system and an enemy ammunition depot have been destroyed.
