Glory to Ukraine! The three hundred and eighty-third day of the russian large-scale invasion continues.

The russian aggressor continues to focus his main efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Marinka, and Shakhtarsk directions and does not stop trying to enter the administrative border of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

During the day, the enemy launched 29 air strikes and 6 missile strikes. In particular, at the vocational-agrarian lyceum of Znob-Novgorodskoe settlement, Sumy region. 1 civilian was killed, 5 more civilians were injured. russian occupiers also hit a school in Avdiivka in Donetsk region with two rockets, killing a local resident. In addition, the enemy launched more than 10 attacks from rocket salvo systems.

The level of missile threat remains high throughout the territory of Ukraine.

On the Volyn, Polissia, Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi directions, the operational situation has not changed significantly. The enemy maintains a military presence near the state border of Ukraine, but the formation of offensive groups has not been detected. At the same time, the enemy continues to engineer terrain in the border areas of Bryansk and Kursk regions. During the day, the occupiers shelled the areas of Myhalchyna Sloboda, Chernihiv Region, Znob-Novgorodsk, Bachivsk, Starykov, and Shalygine, Sumy Region, and Strylecha, Hlyboke, Lukyantsi, Gatyshche, and Vovchansk in Kharkiv Region.

On the Kupyansk and Lyman directions, the enemy is making attempts to break through the defense of our troops. He led unsuccessful offensive actions in the direction of Hryanikyvka, Masyutivka, Nevsky, Serebryansk Forestry, Bilogorivka, and Verkhnokamyanka. He carried out artillery shelling of the areas of Hryanikyvka, Kup’yansk and Krokhmalne settlements in the Kharkiv region and Makiivka, Dibrova and Bilogorivka in the Luhansk region.

In the direction of Bakhmut, the enemy does not stop trying to capture the city of Bakhmut. Enemy attacks were repulsed in the areas of Orihovo-Vasylivka, Hryhorivka, Chasiv Yar, Ivanovske settlements, battles continue in Bakhmut. In particular, Bondarne, Vasyukivka, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Bila Gora, Kostyantynivka and Zalizne of the Donetsk region came under enemy fire.

On the Avdiivka, Marinka, and Shakhtarsk directions, the enemy carried out unsuccessful offensive actions in the direction of Kamianka, Avdiivka, Severnyi, Pervomayskyi, and Maryinka. Areas of more than 10 settlements near the contact line were hit by enemy shelling. Among them are Kamianka, Avdiivka, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Georgiivka and Vugledar of the Donetsk region.

The enemy is conducting defensive operations in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions. In particular, Malynivka, Gulyaipole, Mala Tokmachka, Novoandriivka, Kamianske, Novosilka of the Zaporizhia region were shelled; Tamarine and Ochakiv of the Mykolaiv region, as well as more than 30 settlements in the Kherson region. Among them are Golden Balka, Havrylivka, Beryslav, Zelenivka, Blagovishchenske, Kherson and Dniprovske.

The enemy continues to suffer losses. Thus, 150 mercenaries of the so-called “Wagner” PMC were brought to the territory of the Bilovodsk district hospital in the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region for treatment.

In the city of Energodar, temporarily captured by russia, at the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the shortage of skilled workers who can ensure the vital activity of the nuclear power plant is growing catastrophically. After the russian occupiers employed people without appropriate education and experience at the NPP, the russian representatives of “Rosatom” have expired their contract. At the same time, they were refused to sign a new or extend an existing contract. They also refused to return to russia, since there is no one in particular to work at the NPP. All this can lead to unpredictable consequences.

During the day, the Aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine carried out 10 strikes on areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment of the occupiers.
