The press service of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said this on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.
"The Russian Federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against our state. The enemy continues to make preparations to intensify offensive operations in eastern Ukraine in order to establish full control over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The occupiers are concentrating their main efforts on the seizure of Mariupol and the offensive near the town of Izium. There is still a high probability that the enemy will involve sabotage and reconnaissance groups to carry out acts of sabotage at transport infrastructure facilities," the statement said.
According to the statement, the enemy continues to launch missile strikes on civilian targets across Ukraine.
