The three hundred and fifty-fifth day of the large-scale Russian invasion continues.
During the day, the enemy launched 2 missiles and 16 air strikes. He carried out more than 15 attacks from rocket salvo systems. The danger of strikes by the Russian Federation remains high throughout Ukraine.

Certain units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue to perform tasks in the areas bordering Ukraine. On the training grounds of the Republic of Belarus, combat training of the troops of the Russian Federation continues. At the same time, the enemy does not stop mortar and artillery shelling of our troops’ positions and settlements near the contact line. During this day, the areas of Volfine and Basivka settlements of the Sumy region and Veterinarne and Dvorichanske of the Kharkiv region were subjected to enemy shelling.
On the Kupyansk and Lymansk directions, the enemy fired tanks, mortars, and artillery at the areas of Dvorichna, Synkivka, Kupyansk, Stepova, Kislivka, Krokhmalne, Berestov, Pishchane, Vyshneve, Cherneshchyna settlements of the Kharkiv region; Stelmakhivka, Makiivka, Ploshanka, Bilogorivka in the Luhansk region and Ivanivka, Spirne, and Rozdolivka in the Donetsk region.

In the Kherson direction, the city of Kherson again came under mortar and artillery fire.
There have been more frequent cases when mobilized service members of the Russian Federation, who are in units attached to the 1st Army Corps of the Southern Military District, refuse to go on the offensive. Because of this, mobilized men from the territories of the Donetsk region temporarily occupied by Russia were removed from the second and third lines and sent to training camps. They are trained for two weeks and formed into assault units for offensive operations in the Avdiivka direction.
Due to a significant number of sanitary losses among the invaders, a maternity hospital was used to treat wounded service members of the Russian occupation forces in the temporarily occupied Luhansk. In addition, the premises of Children’s Hospital No. 3 were also converted into a military hospital.
During the day, the aviation of the Defense Forces made 14 strikes on the areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment of the occupiers, and our units of missile troops and artillery hit 3 areas of concentration of manpower and the enemy’s EW station.
Glory to Ukraine!
