    The occupiers suffer significant losses every day, which they are trying to hide, while continuing to apply the traditional russian practice of depriving the families of the dead of benefits and compensation advertised by russian propaganda. Mobile crematoria are actively used for this purpose. In particular, it is known that one of these crematoria is currently operating 24/7 on the territory of the Berdyansk port. Currently, about 50 bodies of dead russian servicemen, who were recently transported from the frontlines to the local morgue, are subject to cremation. The cremation of dead russian soldiers is carried out without their identification and registration.

    Ukrainian Air Force carried out 10 strikes on enemy manpower concentrations, 2 on anti-aircraft missile systems and 1 on the enemy's control point.

    Ukrainian missile and artillery units hit the control post, enemy manpower, weapons and military equipment concentrations, an ammunition depot, 2 artillery units at firing positions, an anti-air system, an electronic warfare station and another important object of the occupiers.
