Throughout the day, the border guards and Wagner Group mercenaries were fighting in the city's industrial area. To support the attack, assault troops used artillery.

"Despite nonstop shelling, State Border Guard Service fighters repelled two enemy assaults: eight invaders were eliminated, and the same number were wounded," the State Border Guard Service noted.
