The National Guard notes that the enemy continues their assault efforts targeting Ukraine’s positions. Most of the hostile units consist of recruited convicts and mercenaries with the Wagner Group, the report adds.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the commander of Ukrainian Ground Forces, Oleksandr Syrskyi, says intense fighting is taking place along the entire front line in the country’s east. The defense operation around Bakhmut continues.
