The situation in the southern operational zone remains dynamic and tense, but under the control of the Ukrainian defense forces. Over the past 24 hours, 39 invaders were eliminated, and an enemy tank was destroyed along with four armored vehicles.

This was announced on Facebook by Operational Command South, Ukrinform reports.

"The enemy continues to rain fire at the civilian population in the liberated villages and our positions along the line of contact. The fighting takes place mainly in the form of artillery duels and air raids. Pursuing its futile efforts to retake lost positions in the area of Potiomkonovo, the enemy carried out a desperate air strike on our positions, involving a Mi-28 helicopter. No casualties,” the statement said
