    Shakhtars’ke axis: during the day, the enemy did not conduct offensive operations. russian forces shelled Novomykhailivka, Vuhledar, Bohoyavlenka, and Velyka Novosilka (Donetsk oblast).

    Zaporizhzhia and Kherson axes: the enemy stays on the defensive. The adversary shelled Vremivka (Donetsk oblast); Novodanylivka, Orihiv, Novoandriivka, and Kam’yans’ke (Zaporizhia oblast).

    russian occupiers maintain counter-intelligence regime in the temporarily occupied territories. The number of roadblocks and patrols increased in and around the town of Starobilsk (Luhansk oblast).

    There is a similar situation in the town of Tokmak (Zaporizhzhia oblast), where fearing the leak of information about the locations of the occupying units, the invaders began to restrict movement for local taxi drivers.
