The two-hundred-forty-fourth (244) 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, improve the tactical position, concentrate efforts on restraining the actions of the Defence Forces in certain directions, and at the same time conduct offensive actions in the Bakhmut and Avdiivka directions.

Over the past 24 hours, the Defence Forces of Ukraine have repelled the attacks of the occupiers in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Luhansk oblast, and Bakhmut, Bilohorivka, Verkhnyokamianske, Ivanhrad, Klishchiivka, Spirne, Soledar, Maryinka, and Nevelske, Donetsk oblast.

The enemy is shelling the positions of our troops along the contact line and conducting aerial reconnaissance. Over the past 24 hours, the enemy has launched missile and air strikes on the infrastructure and homes of the civilian population, violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of war.

In general, during the previous day, the occupiers launched 3 rockets and 12 air strikes, carrying out more than 60 MLRS attacks.

Objects of civil infrastructure in the settlements of Vuhledar and Neskuchne of the Donetsk oblast, Nova Kamianka of the Kherson oblast and Mykolaiv were hit by enemy attacks.

The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly. There is still a threat of missile and air strikes against the critical infrastructure of our State from the territory of the republic of belarus, including the use of iranian-made attack UAVs.

The enemy shelled in such directions:

In the Siversky direction – from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Senkivka settlements of Chernihiv oblast and Rozhkovychi, Sosnivka and Velyka Pysarivka of Sumy oblast.

More than 20 settlements were damaged by fire in the Southern Buh direction. Among them are Bilohirka, Davydiv Brid, Myrne, Sukhyi Stavok and Ternovi Pody.

According to available information, the enemy is setting up defensive positions on the left bank of the Dnieper in the Kherson oblast. For example, in the area of the settlement of Hornostayivka, engineering and sapper units of the Russian occupying forces mine the coastline, leaving small passages for a potential retreat of their troops from the right bank.

Measures to evacuate local residents from temporarily occupied Kherson are underway. From the right bank of the city to the settlements of Henichesk and Skadovsk, the equipment and personnel of all banks and the occupation administration were taken out. The equipment of Internet providers was stolen. Emergency services and medical personnel are subject to evacuation. Funding of schools and provision of food for children in schools has been stopped. The number of robberies of local residents and cases of looting has increased.

To replace the evacuated collaborators, servicemen from among the mobilized persons are transferred to the settlement in Lviv.

According to detailed information, the destruction of five units of weapons and military equipment and up to 110 servicemen of the occupation forces in the Zaporizhia and Kherson oblasts has been confirmed in recent days.

During the past 24 hours, the aviation of the Defence Forces has carried out more than 30 strikes. It was confirmed that 22 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment of the enemy, 5 ammunition warehouses and positions of 9 anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy were destroyed. In different directions, our air defence units shot down 3 Ka-52 “Alligator” helicopters, a Su-24M bomber, 2 “Orlan-10” UAVs and “Shahed-131” UAVs of the enemy.
