Glory to Ukraine! The four hundred and eleventh day of large-scale armed aggression of the russian federation against our state continues.

Also, the occupiers launched about 30 attacks from MLRS systems on the positions of our troops and the civilian infrastructure of populated areas.

The russian federation continues to disregard the laws and customs of war, so the probability of launching missile and air strikes remains high throughout the territory of Ukraine.

Despite numerous losses in equipment and manpower, the enemy does not give up waging a war of aggression. It continues to focus its main efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Maryinka directions – more than 20 enemy attacks were repelled that day.

On the Volyn, Polissiya, Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi directions, the operational situation has not changed significantly.
