Unfortunately, civilian infrastructure was destroyed and civilians suffered.

The probability of launching missile and air strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine remains high.

On the Volyn and Polissya directions, the operational situation has not changed significantly. There were no signs of the formation of offensive groups. Certain units of the armed forces of belarus perform tasks in the areas bordering Ukraine.
