In the northern direction, the enemy completes the regrouping and restoration of combat capability of the Central Military District units in certain areas of the Bryansk and Kursk regions.

Enemy naval groups in the Black and Azov Seas continue to carry out missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine, isolating the area of hostilities and reconnaissance.
The invading power continues to restrict the rights of Ukrainian citizens in the temporarily occupied territories. Thus, in the Zaporizhia region, the Russian occupiers banned men from leaving for the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. There is also a growing shortage of basic necessities, especially food, which could further complicate the humanitarian situation in the region occupied by the Russian occupiers.
Ukraine's defense forces, inflicting losses, continue to push back the enemy and liberate the occupied territories in some areas temporarily occupied by the occupiers.
We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine!
Let's win together!
