    The russian federation continues to wage its war of aggression disregarding the losses. It keeps using the tactics of terror to achieve its goals.

    During the day of June 10, the russian occupiers launched yet another missile and air strike on Ukraine, using 8 missiles, including 4 Iskander ground-launched cruise missiles, and 35 Iranian Shahed combat UAVs against military targets and critical infrastructure.

    The Ukrainian air defense forces and means intercepted 2 cruise missiles and 20 Shahed combat UAVs.

    In addition, the enemy launched 92 air strikes and 45 MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and various settlements. Unfortunately, the attacks killed and wounded civilians, destroyed and damaged private houses.

    The likelihood of missile and air strikes across Ukraine remains very high.

    The adversary continues to focus its main efforts on attempts to fully occupy Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts; heavy fighting continues. During the day of June 10, 35 combat engagements took place in the above-mentioned area of the frontline.

    Cases of disobedience, sabotage, non-statutory relations, and desertion have become more frequent among russian mobilized soldiers. These are due to the lack of legally stipulated deadlines for the mobilized to serve in the russian army, no significant achievements on the battlefield, and the spread of panic about their future prospects. To address these problems, the Chief of the General Staff of the russian Armed Forces has resolved to order commanders of formations and military units to identify and assign these servicemen to assault companies to be further used in the so-called “meat assaults.”

    During the day of June 10, Ukrainian Air Force launched 16 air strikes on the concentrations of troops and 2 air strikes on the anti-aircraft missile systems of the adversary. 

    Also, the Ukrainian defenders intercepted 4 reconnaissance UAVs of various types.

    During the day of June 10, the Ukrainian missile and artillery troops hit 2 command posts, 5 concentrations of troops, weapons, and military equipment, 1 artillery unit at its firing position, and 4 other important adversary targets.

    Support the Armed Forces of Ukraine! United we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
