The two hundred sixty-fifth (265) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
russian occupiers are trying to keep the temporarily captured territories, are concentrating their efforts on restraining the actions of the Defence Forces of Ukraine in certain areas, and are continuing to equip defensive lines on the left bank of the Dnieper. At the same time, they are conducting offensive actions in the Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka directions.
Over the past 24 hours, units of the Defence Forces repelled the attacks of the occupiers in the areas of settlements: Novoselivske, Luhansk oblast; Belogorivka, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Vremivka, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, Novokalynivka, Novomykhailivka, Pervomaiske of the Donetsk oblast.
The enemy does not stop shelling settlements and positions of units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine along the contact line, conducts aerial reconnaissance. It continues to strike critical infrastructure and civilian homes in violation of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of war.
During the past day, the enemy launched 4 missile and 23 air strikes, launched more than 70 attacks from rocket salvo systems.
In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the situation remains without significant changes. The republic of belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine, providing it with infrastructure, territory and airspace.
There is still a threat of the enemy launching missile and air strikes, in particular with the use of attack UAVs from the territory and airspace of the republic of belarus.
The enemy shelled in such other directions:
In the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk oblast, the enemy is looking for abandoned private houses to house servicemen who arrived to replace the losses of the occupying units. In the settlement of Novoaidar, the russian invaders, in order to clarify the information about the abandoned housing, distributed notices to local residents with the demand to come to the so-called "administration" to clarify the data.
It has been confirmed that enemy units were hit in the occupied territory of the Luhansk oblast in the previous days. Thus, in the settlement of Miluvatka, the Defense Forces of Ukraine destroyed the headquarters of a unit of the russian occupation forces. Currently, it is known about 30 dead and more than 20 wounded russian invaders.
In the temporarily occupied Crimea, the gradual restoration of road traffic through the Kerch bridge is noted. Drivers of passenger cars are allowed to drive through it after a thorough inspection. The rest of the transport connection is carried out via ferry crossings.
During the past day, the aviation of the Defence Forces of Ukraine struck the enemy 21 times. 18 areas of concentration of personnel, weapons and military equipment, as well as 3 positions of the enemy's anti-aircraft missile systems, were hit.
