Ukrainian forces repel over 70 enemy attacks in four sectors

Ukrainian forces have repelled more than 70 attacks by Russian invaders in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Marinka areas over the past 24 hours.

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said this in a situation update published on Facebook, according to Ukrinform.

"In the last 24 hours, the enemy launched 2 missile strikes and 30 air strikes and mounted more than 40 attacks using multiple rocket launchers on the positions of our troops and the civilian infrastructure of populated areas. Without any desired results on the battlefield, the enemy continues to cynically wage war against peaceful citizens. The Russian Federation launched another missile attack on civilian objects in the cities of Druzhkivka and Avdiivka, Donetsk region, using ballistic missiles. There are dead and wounded among the civilian population," the report said.

The probability of missile and air strikes on targets across Ukraine remains high, the General Staff said.

The Russians continue to focus their main efforts on conducting offensive operations in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Marinka areas. Over the past 24 hours, thanks to the organized and coordinated actions of units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine, as well as the personal courage of all defenders, more than 70 enemy attacks in the said areas have been repelled.
