    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 17 November 2022 07:22

    The two hundred sixty-seventh (267) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.

    Over the past day, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine have repelled attacks by occupiers in the areas of Stelmakhivka and Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region and Verkhnyokamianske, Soledar, Nevelske, Maryinka and Pervomaiske in the Donetsk region.

    The enemy does not stop shelling the positions of our troops and settlements near the contact line. The russian occupiers launched 4 air strikes and 6 missile strikes, carried out more than 40 MLRS attacks from rocket salvo systems. Also, during the past day, objects of the civil infrastructure of the city of Zaporizhzhia were hit by a missile.

    The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly. The republic of belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine, providing it with infrastructure, territory and airspace. The threat of missile and air strikes on the territory of Ukraine remains.

    The enemy shelled in such other directions:

    • in the Slobozhansk direction - from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of Starytsa and Ambarne settlements of the Kharkiv region;
    • in the Kupyansk and Lyman directions - from tanks and artillery of various types, in the areas of the settlements of Kupyansk, Kyslivka, Krokhmalne, Berestove, Novoselivske, Stelmakhivka, Makiivka and Ploshanka;

    • in the Avdiivka direction - from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the districts of New York, Krasnohorivka, Kamianka, Avdiivka, Pervomaiskyi, Nevelske and Maryinka;
    • in the Novopavlivka direction - from artillery of various types, in the areas of Vuhledar, Bohoyavlenka, Prechystivka and Vremivka;

    In the Kherson direction, Zelenivka, Chornobayivka and Kherson were hit by artillery fire.

    The settlements of Nikopol and Chervonogrigorivka of the Dnipropetrovsk region were also struck by the fire of russian barrel and rocket artillery.

    The russian invaders continue to suffer losses. According to detailed information, on November 15, in the city of Melitopol, Ukrainian soldiers destroyed the headquarters of one of the enemy units. As a result of the actions of the Defense Forces, two ammunition depots, two units of BM-21 "Grad" and an anti-aircraft missile complex S-300 were destroyed in the areas of the settlements of Kinsky Rozdory, Vladivka and Blahovishchenka of Zaporizhzhia region. Also, the enemy lost about 100 people killed and wounded.

    In the Kakhovka district, the enemy intensified filtering measures after effective fire damage by the Defense Forces against its positions. In Kakhovka itself, russian invaders mine infrastructure and destroy cell towers.

    The russian occupiers do not stop trying to implement their own and destroy Ukrainian culture on the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine. According to available information, all textbooks on the history of Ukraine were seized in the city of Enerhodar, Zaporizhzhia oblast, for further destruction. At the request of the self-proclaimed authorities of the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast, the so-called "honorary titles" were awarded to the cities of Horlivka and Mariupol by the decrees of the president of the russian federation.

    During the past day, the aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine struck 2 positions of the enemy's anti-aircraft missile systems.

    Over the past day, units of the missile forces and artillery of the Defence Forces hit 2 control points, 6 areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, 3 ammunition warehouses, as well as 3 other important objects of the occupiers.

    We support the Armed Forces! Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
