War update: Russian troops focus efforts on offensive actions in five directions

In the past 24 hours, Ukraine’s Air Force has launched three strikes on enemy clusters. The Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit one Russian personnel cluster, one ammunition and military equipment cluster, and two air defense missile system positions.

The relevant statement was made by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Russian troops continue focusing efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk directions.

Russian invaders violate the principles of international humanitarian law and attack civilian objects and homes. The aggressor makes attempts to destroy Ukraine’s critical infrastructure.

Over the past day, Russian troops have launched one missile strike and two air strikes, and opened fire with multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) over 20 times. The threat of Russian missile strikes is persisting all over Ukraine.

In the Volyn, Polissia, Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi directions, the situation remained rather unchanged. The enemy continues to keep its military units near Ukraine’s state border, but no offensive groupings were detected.

Over the past day, Russian troops have launched mortar and artillery strikes on the Chernihiv region’s Yeline and Baranivka; the Sumy region’s Rozhkovychi, Bachivsk, Hirky, Atynske, Stukalivka, Budky and Volfyne; and the Kharkiv region’s Hatyshche, Veterynarne, Strilecha, Lukiantsi, Ternova, Vovchansk, Potykhonove, Komisarove, Tykhe, Ustynivka and Anyskyne.

In the Kupiansk and Lyman directions, Russian invaders conducted unsuccessful offensive actions near the Luhansk region’s Makiivka, Nevske and Bilohorivka. The enemy launched artillery strikes on the Kharkiv region’s Dvorichna, Hrianykivka, Zapadne, Lyman Pershyi, Pishchane, Kyslivka and Tabaivka; the Luhansk region’s Nevske, Chervonopopivka, Dibrova and Bilohorivka; and the Donetsk region’s Spirne and Fedorivka.

In the Bakhmut direction, Russian invaders continue storming the city of Bakhmut. Ukrainian defenders repelled enemy attacks near the Donetsk region’s Dubovo-Vasylivka, Bohdanivka, Bakhmut, Chasiv Yar and Bila Hora. Such settlements as Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Bakhmut, Ivanivske, Kurdiumivka, Maiorsk and Zalizne came under enemy fire.

In the Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk directions, Russian troops continue attacking the positions of Ukrainian defenders.  The enemy conducted unsuccessful offensive actions towards the Donetsk region’s Kamianka, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Marinka and Pobieda. The enemy shelling was recorded near the Donetsk region’s Vesele, Avdiivka, Vodiane, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Pobieda, Vuhledar, Prechystivka, Neskuchne and Velyka Novosilka.

In the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions, Russian occupiers are holding defense. In certain areas, the enemy is attempting to create conditions for the offensive. Russian troops launched artillery strikes on the Donetsk region’s Vremivka, Zelene Pole and Novopil; the Zaporizhzhia region’s Olhivske, Huliaipole, Zaliznychne, Charivne, Novodanylivka, Orikhiv and Novoandriivka; and the Kherson region’s Zelenivka and Kherson.

In the Zaporizhzhia region’s Enerhodar, Russian occupiers continue putting pressure on local residents, namely through heat and hot water supply restrictions. After mass dismissals, there is a lack of professionals at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), and Russians have to hire people without proper education and experience.

Lately, in the temporarily occupied areas of the Kherson region, namely in the city of Oleshky, Russian invaders have started to loot more frequently. Special attention is given to transport vehicles.
