    Day 425 of the full-scale russian military aggression has begun.

    The russian federation continues to ignore International Humanitarian Law, terrorizing civilians and destroying residential buildings and critical infrastructure.

    During the past day, the enemy launched 1x missile and 46x air strikes. They carried out about 60x rounds from MLRS on the positions of our troops and populated areas. The enemy actively uses aviation, using winged aerial bombs in Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson Oblasts. As a result, there are dead and wounded among the civilian population, destroyed and damaged private residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure.

    The threat of launching missile and air strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine remains high.

    The main efforts of the enemy are focused on conducting offensive operations on the Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Mar’yinka axes – about 60x enemy attacks were repelled. The fiercest battles continue for Bakhmut and Mar’yinka.

    Volyn’ and Polissya axes: the operational situation remains stable. There were no signs of the formation of offensive groups.

About 25x residential buildings were damaged. There are wounded among civilians.

    The russian occupiers continue to rob the civilian population of Ukraine, appropriating the grain harvest. So, in the city of Berdyansk, Zaporizhzhia Oblast, the so-called russian occupation "authorities" are trying to export stolen grain by loading it onto enemy cargo ships.

    The occupiers are extremely short of medical personnel on the battlefield. In order to replenish the insufficient number of military doctors, local employees of Berdyansk medical institutions, who received passports of citizens of the russian federation, began to force them to register with the enemy. In case of refusal, they are threatened with the loss of their jobs.

    Aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine carried out 14x strikes on areas where the occupiers were concentrated during the past 24 hours. Also, 2x enemy reconnaissance UAVs of the "Merlin" type and 1x – "Orlan-10" were shot down, as well as 8x kamikaze drones of the "Lancet" type.

    Units of missile and artillery troops hit 3x radio electronic warfare stations of the enemy.
