War update: Ukrainian air forces launch five strikes on enemy positions
The relevant statement was made by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to the General Staff, Russian troops continue to attack civil infrastructure and civilian homes all over Ukraine, in violation of international humanitarian law and the laws and customs of war.
The enemy has launched five air strikes and opened fire with multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) more than 40 times over the past day.
The threat of missile and unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) strikes on Ukraine’s energy system and critical infrastructure is persisting across Ukraine.
In the Volyn and Polissia directions, the situation remained rather unchanged. No signs of the enemy offensive grouping being formed were detected.
In the Slobozhanskyi direction, Russian troops opened fire on the Kharkiv region’s Strilecha, Krasne, Starytsia, Vovchanski Khutory, Okhrimivka, Ambarne, Dvorichanske, Fyholivka, Dvorichna and Kupiansk.
In the Kupiansk and Lyman directions, Russian occupiers inflicted fire damage near the Luhansk region’s Makiivka, Ploshchanka, Nevske and Chervonopopivka, and the Kharkiv region’s Terny, Kolodiazi, Zarichne, Dibrova and Yakovlivka.
In the Bakhmut and Avdiivka directions, Russian invaders continue attempts to break through the defense of Ukrainian forces. The enemy used tanks and artillery to open fire on 26 settlements, including the Donetsk region’s Verkhniokamianske, Vasiukivka, Soledar, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Bila Hora, Avdiivka, Opytne, Krasnohorivka and Marinka. Additionally, Russian troops launched an air strike near Klishchiivka.
In the Novopavlivka direction, Russian occupiers are holding the defense and shelling the Ukrainian positions with mortars, cannon and rocket artillery near the Donetsk region’s Velyka Novosilka, Zolota Nyva, Pavlivka and Vuhledar.

Russian occupation authorities are forcing Ukrainian citizens in the temporarily occupied areas to obtain Russian passports. Such measures are ongoing in the Zaporizhzhia region’s Melitopol district. Ukrainian hryvnias are gradually withdrawn from circulation in retail chains, and people are forced to switch to Russian rubles.
Russian occupiers are trying to financially encourage the local population to collaborate, providing cash assistance to retired persons, totaling RUB 10,000, and charging a higher salary to loyal local residents who agreed to work in the institutions of the occupation authorities.
Over the past day, Ukraine’s missile and artillery units have struck seven Russian command posts, 10 personnel clusters, one artillery cluster and one ammunition depot.
