The two hundred-third (203) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a Russian military invasion continues.
The enemy continues to focus its efforts on attempts to fully occupy the Donetsk region, hold the captured territories and disrupt the offensive actions of the Defense Forces in certain directions.
The enemy carries out fire damage to the positions of our units along the entire contact line, tries to recover the lost position, moves his troops and conducts aerial reconnaissance.
The enemy continues to terrorize the civilian population of Ukraine, violating the laws and customs of warfare. The infrastructure of more than 15 settlements, including Bilohorivka, Spirne, Verkhnyokamyanske, Stepove, Sukhyi Stavok, Bilohirka, Bezymennyi, and Mala Seyidemynukha, were damaged by air and missile strikes. At night, the enemy launched rocket attacks on the civilian infrastructure of Mykolayiv and Kramatorsk. In general, during the current day, 8 missile strikes, 4 airstrikes and 15 attacks from the enemy’s MLRS were recorded.
The threat of air and missile strikes remains throughout the territory of Ukraine.
The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly.
In the Siverskyi direction, the enemy shelled the areas of Senkivka and Bleshnya in Chernihiv region and Stepne and Novovasylivka in Sumy region with tanks, mortars and artillery.
In the Kharkiv direction, the intensity of enemy shelling decreased significantly. The settlements of Basove and Kupyansk were affected by the fire strikes.
In other directions, the enemy fired at military and civilian infrastructure from tanks, mortars, and artillery, namely:
- in the Kramatorsk direction – in the areas of Yaremivka, Tetyanivka, Raihorodok, Dronivka, Kryva Luka, Siversk, Verkhnokamianske, Zvanivka, Spirne and Bilohorivka;
- in the Bakhmut direction – in the areas of Mykolayivka, Bilohorivka, Yakovlivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Hryhorivka, Bakhmut, Mykolayivka Druha, Zaitseve, New York, Yuryivka and Vesele;
- in the Avdiyivka direction – Umanske, Avdiyivka, Pervomayiske, Vodyane, Opytne, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka and Novomykhailivka;
- in the Zaporizhzhia direction – the settlements of Bohoyavlenka, Zelene Pole, Novopil, Vremivka, Velyka Novosilka, Neskuchne, Vuhledar, Pavlivka, Poltavka, Hulyaipole, Zaliznychne, Orihiv and Mali Shcherbaky;
- in the Southern Bug direction – in the areas of the settlements of Visokopillya, Zarichne, Kamyane, Arkhanhelske, Partyzanske, Andriyivka, Bilohirka, Sukhy Stavok, Ternovi Pody, Blahodatne, Myrne and Tavriyske.
As a result of the successful actions of the Defense Forces and the destruction of a large number of enemy personnel, the morale and psychological state of the occupiers is extremely low. The command of the units of the occupying forces tries to force the personnel to participate in combat operations by threatening to send them to the frontline positions without weapons. As a result, up to 50 mobilized servicemen of the occupation forces from the city of Horlivka wrote reports on their refusal to participate further in hostilities.
In order to preserve some samples of military equipment, the command of the enemy’s air defense units is trying to organize the evacuation of air defense systems deep into the temporarily captured territories and the Russian federation’s territory. Thus, on the night of September 11-12, in the Luhansk region, convoys with S-300 and Buk complexes were spotted moving from the settlement of Lutuhyne in the direction of the russian-Ukrainian border.
In the Donetsk direction, the enemy does not stop trying to advance deep into our territory. Defense forces repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Spirne, Soledar, Mayorsk, Zaitseve, Odradivka, Vesela Dolyna, Vodyane, and Novomykhayilivka settlements.
During the current day, to support the actions of land groupings, the aviation of the Defense Forces carried out 11 strikes – six positions and places of accumulation of enemy manpower and equipment, three positions of anti-aircraft missile systems, and one enemy plane were shot down.
Units of the Missile Forces and Artillery inflicted damage on command and control points, areas of concentration of manpower, and combat equipment of the enemy. In addition, the destruction of four “Grad” MLRS in the Kherson region, which fell into the affected zone on September 12 of this year, and the occupiers’ food warehouse in Dokuchayevsk were confirmed.
Let’s win together!
Glory to Ukraine!
