Russian troops launched six missile strikes and 16 air strikes, and opened fire with multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) over 50 times, namely on civil infrastructure in such regions as Kharkiv, Donetsk and Kherson.

Russian occupation troops put psychological and physical pressure on civilians within the temporarily occupied areas. About 1,500 employees at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), who refused to obtain Russian passports and sign a contract with Russia’s Rosatom, were forbidden access to the plant. Russian occupiers are seeking new workers for Zaporizhzhia NPP within the territory of Russia and preparing the housing stock for the future employees through the so-called ‘nationalization’ of apartments owned by the local residents who had fled the city.
Over the past day, Ukrainian air forces have launched 14 strikes on enemy clusters, including four strikes on air defense system positions.
Ukraine’s missile and artillery units hit three Russian command posts, two missile and artillery force positions, and eight enemy personnel clusters.
