The seventy-seventh day of Ukrainian people's resistance to the military invasion of Russia continues. In the last 24 hours, the defenders of Ukraine successfully repelled 15 enemy attacks on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions: 1 air defense system, 9 tanks, 3 artillery systems, 25 armored vehicles, 3 pieces of special equipment, and 3 enemy vehicles were destroyed.
The invader continues a full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine without stopping offensive operations in the Eastern Operational Zone to gain full control over the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and maintain a land corridor between these territories and the occupied Crimea, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports.
The enemy focused the main efforts of aviation on supporting units in the eastern operational zone: in the Slobozhanshchyna and Donetsk directions, as well as near Azovstal.
The enemy continues to use artillery practically along the entire line of contact. There remains a high probability of delivering missile strikes on civilian and military infrastructure throughout Ukraine.
The probability of sabotage operations at the facilities of the chemical industry of Ukraine with the subsequent accusation of divisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not ruled out.
The enemy continues to provide heavy guard of the section of the Ukrainian-Russian border in the Bryansk and Kursk regions. They shelled the area near the border settlements of Velyka Pysarivka, Bilopillia, Krasnopillia, and Iunakivka of the Sumy region using multiple rocket launchers.
It is expected that the enemy will continue to carry out demonstration actions along the section of the state border of Ukraine in order to constrain the actions of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and prevent their regrouping in other directions.
The enemy keeps certain forces and means of air defense on the territory of the Belgorod region in full readiness in order to use them. The enemies continue to focus their efforts on the defense of the occupied lines in order to prevent the advance of units of our troops in the direction of the state border of Ukraine. The invaders conduct aerial reconnaissance.
The enemy continues to prepare for offensive operations in the directions of the settlements of Lyman and Severodonetsk and is replenishing ammunition, fuel, and logistical resources.
Battles continue for the settlements of Voievodivka, Toshkivka, and Nyzhnie, Severodonetsk district of the Luhansk region, as well as for Kamianka, Yasynuvata district of the Donetsk region.
