The one hundred and ninety-second day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian nation to the Russian military invasion continues.
The enemy continues to focus its efforts on establishing full control over the territory of the Donetsk region, maintaining the captured districts of Kherson, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya, and Mykolaiv regions.
Offensive and assault operations continue in the Bakhmut and Avdiivka areas. The enemy is actively using anti-aircraft defense to cover its troops. The enemy did not conduct active combat operations in the Kramatorsk and Novopavlovsk directions.
