In the Shchurivka region, our soldiers discovered and neutralised a reconnaissance group of the occupiers.”

A Russian reconnaissance group was spotted near Verkhniokamiansk, fired on, and forced to retreat. The occupiers also carried out aerial reconnaissance by UAVs.
On the Bakhmut front, Russian occupiers shelled military and civilian infrastructure with artillery and tanks in the areas of Shumy, Kodem, Soledar, Bakhmut, Vesela Dolyna, Travneve, Zaytseve, Vershina and other settlements. Airstrikes near Pokrovske, Novoluhanske, Soledar and Vesela Dolyna.
Russian troops again tried to take Soledar, Vershyna and Semihiria. And again without success – they suffered losses and retreated.
On the Avdiivka front, Russian forces shelled the areas of Pavlivka, Avdiivka, Vesele, Vuhledar, Vodiane, Velyka Novosilka, Pisky, Novokalynove, Krasnohorivka, Shevchenko and others.
All offensive and assault actions of the occupiers in the areas of Avdiivka, Kamianka, Krasnohorivka and Pisky were resolutely stopped by Ukrainian troops.
On the Kharkiv front, Russian forces shelled the areas of Kharkiv, Rubizhne, Udy, Dementiivka, Slatine, Bazaliivka, Peremoha, Mayak, Zamulivka, Lisne, Sosnivka, Svitlychne, Ivanivka, Korobochkine and other settlements in the Kharkiv direction. Russian aviation struck near Staryi Saltov.

On the Volyn and Polissia fronts, the situation has not changed significantly. No signs of the creation of offensive groups of the armed forces of the Russian Federation or Belarus were found.
On the Siversk front, the occupiers continued to strike infrastructure objects with barrel and rocket artillery in the border areas of Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts. The occupiers also carried out aerial reconnaissance with UAVs near the village of Hremiach, Chernihiv Oblast.
On the Pivdennyi (South) Buh front, Russian occupation forces’ main efforts are focused on preventing the advance of Ukrainian troops. The occupiers fear the high intensity of UAV reconnaissance.
