That’s according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.
In an insidious move, the enemy continues to use civilians as a human shield, taking hostages. Contrary to the norms of international humanitarian law, the aggressor uses high-power cluster and fragmentation munitions in their bombings. When inflicting artillery strikes on settlements, the Russian army actively uses the Grad, Tornado, and Uragan multiple rocket launchers.
In the Volyn direction, the enemy with up to 2 BTGs switched to defensive operations and tried to fixate in the area of Bihun, Ovruch, Pirozhky, Riznia, and Ukrainka.
In Polissya, the invaders focused their main efforts on the Kyiv direction, incurring losses in personnel and equipment, but never ceased attempt at blocking Kyiv from the north and north-west.
In the direction of Korosten, the enemy suffered heavy losses and stopped the advance, carrying out no offensive activity at the moment.
In the Siverskyi region, the enemy is trying to hold their ground in the areas of the settlements of Liubech and Mena with the help of 41st all-military army and 90th tank division of the Central Military District of the Russian Armed Forces in the Chernihiv-Kyiv direction. At the same time, the aggressors are advancing in the direction of Kotsiubynske - Honcharivske (Kyiv) with the 2 BTGs.
Enemy troops are forced to pull in operational reserves. To resume the offensive in the direction of Kyiv, an additional BTG was deployed.
Seven BTGs, 3 rocket and artillery TGs , a chemical defense TG, of the 6th All-Military Army of the Central Military District of the Russian Armed Forces, and 2nd All-Military Army of the Russian Armed Forces continue attempts to resume offensive operations in the Nizhyn and Pryluky areas.
In the direction of Peremoha – Brovary, two BTGs from the 2nd All-Military Army of the Central Military District of the Russian Armed Forces are being deployed.
In Slobozhanshchyna, enemy troops from the 1st Panzer Army of the Russian Armed Forces, 6th and 20th All-Military Armies were stopped in the areas of Okhtyrka, Bohodukhiv, Chuhuiv, and Shevchenkove after illegally crossing into Ukraine.
In the Sumy direction, up to two BTGs of 200th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade (14 Army Corps) and 90th SMRB (up to two BTGs) continue to keep in siege the city of Sumy, as well as the towns of Lebedyn and Okhtyrka.
In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy was forced to switch to defense with forces of up to six BTGs. With their three BTGs, they will probably make another attempt to encircle Kharkiv from the south.
In the Svativsky direction, with forces of up to two BTGs, the enemy will probably attempt to advance in the direction of Izium and gain a foothold at any frontier. The main reason for such actions is continued offensive in the directions of the Dnipro and Zaporizhia.
Mariupol remains stable, the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are inaccessible to the enemy.
In the Tavriya direction, the enemy introduced part of the operational reserves – up to a BTGr – trying to continue the offensive in the direction of Zaporizhia, and throwing part of the forces toward Mariupol.
Warship groups of the Black Sea, Northern, Sea and Baltic Fleets of the Russian Federation are actively conducting demonstrative activities.
In the Sumy region, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine advanced along the state border across the region.
The demoralized enemy continues to suffer losses, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine emphasizes.
