    Day 583 of the russian full-scale military aggression against Ukraine has begun.

    The russian occupiers keep ignoring the International Humanitarian Law, as they shell not only the positions of Ukrainian troops, but also civilian infrastructure in various settlements, terrorizing civilians. Thus, the russian federation launched yet another strike at Ukraine during the day of September 28, using 39 Shahed-136/131 combat UAVs, 31 of which were intercepted by Ukrainian Defense Forces. 

    The Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to defend in the east and the south of Ukraine, conduct the offensive on Melitopol axis, and offensive operations on Bakhmut axis. As they destroy the enemy, they liberate the temporarily occupied territories and consolidate new positions. 

    During the day of September 28, there were 21 combat engagements. The enemy launched a total of 83 air strikes, and 63 MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and civilian targets across Ukraine.
