The danger of air and missile strikes remains on the entire territory of Ukraine. Do not ignore air raid signals.
The enemy, who lost 760 people killed just yesterday, continues to attempt offensive actions on Bakhmut and tries to improve the tactical position of units of its troops in the Kupyansk, Lyman, and Avdiivka directions. The enemy is defending in the Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia directions and is regrouping troops in the Kherson area.
The situation is stable in the Volyn, Polissya, Siversk, and Slobozhansk directions, and no signs of the formation of offensive groups of the occupiers have been detected.

In order to destabilize the humanitarian situation in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson oblast and to force the local population to the so-called "voluntary evacuation", the Russian occupying forces are firing mortars at Oleshky, Hola Prystan, Plavni, as well as country settlements between the mentioned settlements.
Mobilization measures continue in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian Crimea. Military commissariats have started checking lists of people who have not yet participated in a large-scale invasion of Ukraine and are subject to conscription for mobilization in 2023.
The enemy continues to use civilian facilities to treat armed Russian occupiers. Thus, in the city of Pervomaisk, Alchevsk district, Luhansk oblast, on the premises of a local school, the occupiers deployed a "field hospital" and are treating about 100 servicemen of the occupying forces. In addition, more than 150 wounded mercenaries of the "Wagner" PMC are being treated in the premises of the local maternity hospital, equipped as a military hospital.
The Ukrainian aviation made 13 strikes on the areas of the invaders, and our units of missile forces and artillery hit two areas of concentration of the enemy's manpower and military equipment.
Glory to Ukraine!
