Russian enemy suffered the greatest losses (of the last day) at the Kryvyi Rih and Kramatorsk directions.

The two hundred-twenty-ninth (228) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a Russian military large-scale invasion continues.

The enemy is trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, is concentrating its efforts on attempts to disrupt the counteroffensive actions of the Defence Forces in certain directions, and continues offensive actions in the Bakhmut and Avdiivka directions.

The enemy is shelling the positions of our troops along the contact line, carrying out engineering equipment of defensive positions and lines in separate directions, and conducting aerial reconnaissance.

Violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of warfare, it strikes critical infrastructure and residential areas.

There remains the threat of air and missile strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine. For example, during the past day, the occupiers launched 10 rockets and 19 air strikes, carrying out more than 90 MLRS attacks.

As a result, over the past day, the infrastructure and civilians of more than 30 settlements were affected. Among them are Zaporizhzhia, Slovyansk, Novobakhmutivka, Siversk, Bilohorivka, Nikopol and Blahodativka.

The enemy used seven anti-aircraft-guided missiles to attack Zaporizhzhia. Once again, the critical infrastructure of the city and the homes of peaceful civilians were affected.

The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly.

The enemy fired in other directions:

in the SiverFskyi direction – from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Popivka, Starykove, Vorozhba, Yanzhulivka, and Myropillya settlements;

in the Slobozhansky direction – from mortars, barrel, and rocket artillery, in the areas of Chervona Zorya, Veterynarne, Strilecha, Mali Prohody, Vovchansk, Kam’yanka, Dvorichna, and Hrynkivka settlements;

in the Kramatorsk direction – from tanks, mortars, barrels and rocket artillery along the entire line of contact, in particular, in the areas of the settlements of Pershotravneve, Siversk, Makiivka, Novoyehoryvka, Stelmakhivka, Terry, Torske and Zarichne. Also, in the area of the settlement of Svatove, the enemy blew up railway and road bridge crossings;

in the Bakhmut direction – from tanks, mortars, barrels, and rocket artillery along the entire line of contact, in particular, in the areas of the settlements of Rozdolivka, Serebryanka, Bilohorivka, Verkhnyokamianske, Zaitseve, Krasna Hora, Soledar. In addition, the occupiers mined the area in the Berestove district;

in the Avdiivka direction – tanks, mortars, barrel, and jet artillery shelled the areas of Avdiivka, Kamianka, Vodyane, Pervomaiske, Pisky, Krasnohorivka, and Marianka settlements.

More than 20 settlements were damaged by fire in the Novopavlovsk and Zaporizhzhia areas. In particular, Vuhledar, Novopil, Shakhtarske, Mali Shcherbaky, Velyka Novosilka, Malynivka and Mala Tokmachka.

Enemy shelling in the areas of more than 25 settlements along the entire contact line was recorded in the South Buh direction. Near Dudchan, the enemy engaged an attack UAV. In total, the occupiers made up to 30 UAV flies in the direction of aerial reconnaissance.

The situation is critical in the 127th Rifle Regiment of the so-called 1st Army Corps. The hastily formed regiment, by the decision of the commander of the 49th Army, was immediately transferred to the first line of combat in the Kherson and Mykolaiv oblasts. Relatives of mobilized servicemen prepared an appeal to the law enforcement agencies of the Russian federation about significant losses and the inaction of the military command. There are long interruptions with water and food in the subdivisions. Military personnel, at best, are equipped with old-fashioned protective equipment, which leads to numerous casualties.

Over the past day, units of the Defense Forces have repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Ozaryanivka, Kamianka, Pervomaiske, and Nevelske settlements.

The aviation of the Defence Forces of Ukraine carried out 24 strikes during the past day. Damage to 20 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 4 anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy, was confirmed. In addition, Ukrainian air defense units shot down 1 Su-25 enemy aircraft, 3 UAVs and 3 Х-59 guided air missiles the previous day.
