The forty-fifth day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

The russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The russain enemy continues to carry out preparatory measures to intensify offensive operations in eastern Ukraine to establish full control over the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

The main efforts of the russian occupiers are focused on the capture of Mariupol and the offensive near the city of Izyum. There is still a high probability that the enemy will involve sabotage and reconnaissance groups to carry out sabotage of transport infrastructure.

The enemy continues to launch missile strikes on civilian targets throughout Ukraine.

No significant changes in the composition and position of the enemy’s troops were noted in the Volyn, Polissya, and Siversky areas.

In Slobozhanshchyna, the russian enemy continues to partially block the city of Kharkiv. In order to covertly move the occupation units in the Kharkiv oblast, the enemy is carrying out electronic suppression of cellular networks. In order to increase the number of troops, up to two battalion tactical groups of the russian enemy were moved from the Belgorod region to the Shevchenkiv district of the Kharkiv oblast.

The russian enemy continues to provide storm in the Donetsk direction. The main efforts of the russian occupiers are focused on taking control of the settlements of Rubizhne, Popasna and Novobakhmutivka. At the same time, the russian invaders continue to strike at the settlements of Vuhledar and Novoselivka Druha. They are trying to resume the offensive in the Novotoshkivsky, Stepny and Marinka districts.

In the South Buh direction, the occupiers do not stop trying to keep positions and borders on the administrative border of Kherson region

 Ukrainian defenders are defending themselves and are gradually pushing back enemy troops in certain areas.

Let’s win together! Glory to Ukraine!
