The sixty-seventh day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

russian enemy continues to conduct full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine and offensive operations in the Eastern Operational Zone.

In the Volyn and Polissya directions, russian enemy did not take active action. There is a threat that the enemy will launch missile strikes on military and civilian infrastructure located in Ukraine from the territory of the republic of belarus, as well as provocations in areas near the state border of Ukraine, accusing units of our defence forces.

In the Siversky direction, russian enemy fired on Ukrainian positions near the village of Senkivka. To clarify the position of our troops in the Sumy direction, russian enemy conducted air reconnaissance using UAVs.

In the future, demonstration actions along the state border of Ukraine, as well as the resumption of fire damage to our units and infrastructure in the border areas in this direction are not excluded.

In the Slobozhansky direction, russian enemy fired mortars at the positions of the Defence Forces in the areas of the settlements of Uda and Prudyanka. russian occupiers also suffered casualties in the area of the village of Stary Saltiv.

In the Izyum direction, russian enemy tried to conduct offensive operations, was unsuccessful, and suffered losses in manpower and equipment.

In the Donetsk and Tavriya directions, russian enemy tried to establish full control over the settlements of Rubizhne and Popasna, was unsuccessful, and suffered losses.

russian occupiers unsuccessfully stormed the settlements of Ozerne and Marinka. russian enemy also suffered losses in the area of the settlements of Vremivka and Zelene Pole.

In the South Buh direction, russian enemy is fighting with the forces of certain units in order to reach the administrative borders of the Kherson region and create favourable conditions for the attack on Mykolayiv and Kryvyi Rih.

The main efforts of the occupiers focused on the Kryvyi Rih direction. They fired artillery at the positions of our units in the Tavriysky, Osokorivka, Trudolyubivka and Knyazivka districts.

In the Mykolayiv direction russian enemy carries out regrouping of divisions.

In order to clarify the situation and identify the positions of our units, russian enemy conducted air reconnaissance with the involvement of UAVs in the eastern part of Mykolayiv and the north-western part of Kherson regions.

russian occupiers continue illegal actions against the citizens of Ukraine in the temporarily occupied territories. They hinder the free movement of our citizens to the territory of Ukraine not occupied by the russians.

The invaders also continue to try to form a system of so-called power in the temporarily occupied territories. We call on the citizens to continue their total resistance to the occupiers.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Let's win together!

Glory to Ukraine!
