The two hundred-thirty-second (231) 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 trying to disrupt the counteroffensive actions of the Defence Forces in separate directions, and at the same time is trying to conduct offensive actions in the Bathmat and Avdiivka directions.

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

Violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of war, it strikes critical infrastructure and the homes of the civilian population.

Over the past 24 hours, the occupiers have launched 3 rocket and 21 air strikes, launched 104 attacks from multiple rocket systems.

Objects and civilians in more than 40 settlements were hit by the enemy. The enemy struck, in particular, in the districts of Mykolaiv, Vinnytsia, Cherkas, Chernyakhiv, Bilohorivka, Spirne, Pavlivka, Myrne and Davydiv Brid.

For this, he used winged, aviation, anti-aircraft guided missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles of Iranian production.

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

The enemy fired in other directions:

in the Siverskyi direction – from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Myropillya, Seredyna-Buda, Stukalivka and Pavlivka settlements;

in the Slobozhansk direction – from artillery of various types, in the areas of the settlements of Buhruvatka, Hryanikyvka, Dvorichna, Nova Vovcha, Strilecha, Udy, and Chervona Zorya;

in the Kramatorsk direction – from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, along the entire line of contact. In particular, near Bilohorivka, Zarichne, Novoehorivka, Serebryanka, Spirne, Terny, Torske and Yampolivka;

in the Bakhmut direction – from tanks and artillery of various calibers, along the entire line of contact. In particular, in the areas of the settlements of Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Zelenopilya, Soledar, Mayorsk, New York and Yakovlivka;

Areas of more than 20 settlements along the contact line were damaged by fire in the South Buh direction.

Over the past 24 hours, units of the Defence Forces repelled the attacks of the occupiers in the areas of the settlements of Bakhmutske, Ozaryanivka, Ivanhrad, Bakhmut and Maryinka.

In some areas of hostilities, in particular in the Donetsk oblast, enemy units began to receive orders from the top commanders to temporarily stop offensive operations. The main reason is the extremely low morale and psychological condition of the recruits, numerous facts of desertion from among the mobilized and non-fulfilment of combat orders.

According to available information, in the area of the city of Tokmak, Zaporizhzhia oblast, our units hit three S-300 anti-aircraft missile complexes of the enemy along with personnel. The injured occupiers were transported to a local hospital. In the Kherson region, as a result of point fire damage in the Tokarivka area, the losses of the enemy amounted to 150 people killed.

It is also known that the repair base of the occupiers in the area of the settlement of Kalanchak accepts up to thirty units of damaged armoured vehicles that are suitable for repair every day.

Aviation of the Defence Forces carried out 32 strikes during the past 24 hours. More than 25 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 7 anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy, have been damaged. In addition, our air defence units shot down 4 enemy helicopters and 26 unmanned aerial vehicles.

Over the past day, missile forces and artillery hit 6 control points, 7 areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, and 4 ammunition depots. Enemy artillery positions, electronic warfare and other military targets also fell into the fire damage zone.
