Glory to Ukraine! The one hundred seventieth (170) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

The enemy shelled the areas of Oleksandrivka in Chernihiv Oblast and Yuryevo, Bilopylla, Atynske and Yastrubyne in Sumy Oblast with artillery.

The rotation of units of the armed forces of the russian federation, which perform tasks in the border regions of the Kursk and Belgorod regions, continues.

The enemy tried to conduct offensive battles in the direction of Pasika - Bohorodychne and Tychotske - Dolyna. It was repulsed and ran away.

In the Kramatorsk direction, shelling was recorded near Siversk, Zvanivka, Verkhnokamyanske, Hryhorivka, and Raihorodok.

The enemy's attempt to carry out combat reconnaissance in the direction of Biloghrivka - Hryhorivka failed.

In the Bakhmut direction, the occupiers used tanks and various caliber artillery to fire in the areas of Bakhmut, Soledar, Ivano-Daryivka, Vyimka, Spirne, Yakovlivka, Kodema, Vershyna, Zaitseve and Vasyukivka settlements. Airstrikes were recorded near Vyimka, Ivano-Daryivka, Spirne, Yakovlivka, Soledar, and Bakhmutske.

The invaders tried to conduct reconnaissance near Spirne. Ukrainian soldiers inflicted fire damage and neutralized the enemy.

With offensive and assault actions, the russian occupiers unsuccessfully tried to break through the defense of our units and advance in the direction of the settlements of Spirne, Ivano-Daryivka, Vyimka, Yakovlivka, Kodema, Vershyna and Zaitseve. They suffered losses and left chaotically. Fighting continues in some areas.

In the direction Pokrovske - Bakhmut, the enemy had partial success and is trying to gain a foothold.

Artillery shelling continued in the Avdiivka direction near Maryinka, Vodyane, Netaylove, Avdiivka, Pisky, Krasnohorivka, and Novobakhmutivka. The enemy carried out airstrikes near Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, Vodyanyi and Avdiyivka.

Our defenders suppressed all enemy assault attempts in the Spartak, Pisky and Maryinka areas and drove the invaders back to their previous positions.

On the Novopavlivske and Zaporizhzhia directions, enemy fire was detected near Novomykhailivka, Shevchenko, Novoyakovlivka, Velyka Novosilka, Volodymyrivka, Vugledar, Novopil, Preobrazhenka, Vremivka, Novosilka, Zelene Pole, Novodanilivka, Kamianske, Novoandriivka, Hulyaipole and Bilohirya. Enemy aviation operated near Vuhledar and Novomykhailivka.

The occupiers were advancing in the Yehorivka-Pavlivka direction. The enemy is stopped and pushed back.

In the South Buh direction, the invaders fired at the positions of our troops from tanks, barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line. Airstrikes were carried out in the areas of Osokorivka, Andriivka, Blahodatne, Novohryhorivka, Lozove, Myrne, Bruskynske and Veliky Artakov.

The enemy is trying to restore the combat capability of the units that suffered losses during the hostilities in the indicated direction.

Two sea-based cruise missile carriers are ready for use in the waters of the Black and Azov Seas.

Losses of russian occupation forces in manpower are increasing. In this regard, the command of the invaders is expanding the practice of postponing the terms of rotations of advanced units for an indefinite period without supplementing them with personnel. All this significantly affects the moral and psychological state of russian servicemen and so-called volunteers and worsens their motivation to participate in hostilities.

We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Together we will win!

Glory to Ukraine!
