Throughout the day, the Russian army carried out one missile attack and 16 air strikes, as well as more than ten attacks using multiple rocket launchers.

"The Russian invaders continue to suffer huge losses. This forces them to set up their hospitals on the territory of civilian medical institutions," the General Staff said.
