The one hundred thirteenth (113) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues. 

In the Volyn and Polissya directions, certain units of the Armed Forces of the republic of belarus continue to carry out tasks to cover the belarusian-Ukrainian border. Engineering equipment of positions in the border areas of Brest region is underway. In the period from 14 to 16 June, a command and staff exercise was conducted with the military units of the logistics of the Armed Forces of the republic of belarus.
In the Siversky direction, the enemy fired artillery at the settlements of Leonivka in the Chernihiv oblast and Ulanove, Sopych and Baranivka in the Sumy oblast. It struck by a couple of Ka-52 helicopters a strike near the town of Hlukhiv in the Sumy oblast.

In the Slobozhansky direction, the enemy is fighting to deter units of the Defence Forces from further advancing towards the State Border.

In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy used artillery and rocket-propelled grenade launchers in the areas of Zolochiv, Uda, Bayrak, Peremoha, Rubizhne, Verkhniy Saltiv, Pechenigy and Lebyazhe.

Artillery shelling was recorded in the Slovyansk direction near Mazanivka, Krasnopillya and Dibrovny. Ukrainian soldiers repulsed an enemy assault in the direction of the village of Dolyna. The enemy retreated.

In the Donetsk direction, the enemy does not stop firing on the positions of our troops along the line of contact, concentrating the main efforts on the Siverodonetsk and Bakhmut directions.
No active offensive operations were observed in the Lyman direction. The occupiers fired artillery at the Starodubivka district.

In the Siverodonetsk direction, the enemy used artillery and rocket-propelled grenade launchers in the areas of the settlements of Siverodonetsk, Lysychansk, Ustynivka, Loskutivka, Metolkine and Borivske. Inflicted an air strike on Loskutivka.

In the Bakhmut direction, russian occupiers fired artillery at areas of the settlements of New York, Zaitseve, Pokrovske, Nova Kamyanka, Yakovlivka, Berestove, Mykolayivka, and Novoivanivka. A pair of Ka-52 helicopters attacked in the peaceful settlement of Yakovlivka. Our soldiers again successfully repulsed the assault of the enemy in the direction of Berestove.

In the Avdiivska, Kurakhivska, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia directions, the enemy tried to carry out assault operations in order to prevent the transfer of our troops to other directions. It fired mortars, artillery and multiple rocket launchers in the areas of Marinka, Novomykhailivka, Zaliznychne, Huliaipole and Charivne.

The situation in the South Bug area has not changed significantly. The enemy continues to focus on maintaining the occupied frontiers and improving the engineering equipment of the positions.
It used barrel and jet artillery in the areas of Osokorivka, Dobryanka, Topolyne, Knyazivka, Murakhivka, Chervona Dolyna, Zorya, Kotlyareve, Novomykolaivka, Stepova Dolyna, Tavriyske, Lymany and Oleksandrivka.

The enemy maintains three high-precision weapons carriers ready for use with a total volley of up to 20 Caliber cruise missiles.

Significant losses of russian occupation troops ruin the military leadership's plans to move rapidly into Ukraine. Cases of large numbers of personnel being fired for refusing to take part in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine have become more frequent. This does not allow to strengthen and replace russian units that have lost their combat capability in a short time.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian units, performing fire tasks, continue to successfully reduce the number of russian occupiers on Ukrainian soil.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine!

Glory to Ukraine!
