UPDATED AT 22:27. Tonight, large-scale actions in support of Ukraine were held in many cities: Prague, Vilnius, Frankfurt, Bratislava, Tbilisi, Paris and Leon. In Prague alone, 80,000 people came out to support our country and its defenders.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the audience via video link. He thanked the world for its support and twice honored the fallen compatriots with a minute of silence - first military personnel, law enforcement officers and firefighters, and then civilians who died under Russian Nazi shelling.

Zelensky's speech was greeted with a standing ovation; tens of thousands of foreigners chanted, "Glory to Ukraine!"

Arestovich noted that the Russian fascists could not seriously advance on Ukrainian soil yesterday. The only areas where they have achieved some success are the city of Energodar in the Zaporizhzhia region, where the invaders entered yesterday, and the outskirts of the city of Voznesensk in the Mykolaiv region, where the invaders are trying to create a springboard for a further advance towards Kryvyi Rih.

Arestovich noted that the nuclear power plant in Energodar is still only partially controlled by the enemy; our Armed Forces can repel the enemy.

On the outskirts of Voznesensk, for the second day in a row, the invaders are suffering huge losses from shelling and airstrikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Also, fighting continues northwest of Kyiv. Enemy attempts to launch an offensive are being held back.

In the Sumy region and Chernihiv, as well as Kharkiv and Akhtyrka, despite the brutal shelling of residential areas, the defense of the cities do not allow the invaders to move forward.

Mariupol is under partial siege. The city's defenders hold back the enemy and prevent him from encircling the city.

In the Odessa region, according to Arestovich, "there is no immediate threat." The region's leadership keeps the situation under control; the militants are monitoring the movements of enemy ships that are trying to fire on our Navy.
