    Glory to Ukraine! The one hundred forty-fourth (144) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

    In the Volyn and Polissya directions, units of the Armed Forces of the republic of belarus continue to perform the specified tasks. According to available information, there is a restriction on visiting the forest by the local population in the border areas of the Brest region.

    There are no significant changes in the Siversky direction. The enemy carried out an airstrike near Esmani, Sumy oblast. In addition, it periodically carries out aerial reconnaissance and artillery shelling of the positions of our troops in the border areas of Chernihiv and Sumy oblast.

    In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy is trying to hold the occupied lines. He shelled the areas of the settlements of Petrivka, Rydne, Sosnivka, Slatine, Pryshyb, Ruski Tyshki, Pytomnyk, Verkhniy Saltiv and others. Conducted aerial reconnaissance of the "Orlan-10" UAV.

    In the Slovyansk direction, the enemy shelled civil and military infrastructure near Zakitny, Hryhorivka, Tetyanivka, Zvanivka, Minkivka, Raigorodka and others with barrel and jet artillery. He led assaults in the area of Ivano-Daryivka, but was unsuccessful. Tried to advance in the direction of Verkhnokamyanka. He was decisively repulsed, suffered losses and withdrew. Conducted aerial reconnaissance of operational-tactical level UAVs near Zvanivka, Fedorivka, and Serebryanka.

    In the direction of Bakhmut, the enemy fired at our positions in the areas of the settlements of Novoluhanske, Berestove, Bilorohovka, Vershyna, Vyimka, Sukha Balka, Oleksandropil and the territory of the Vuhlehirska TPP. Ukrainian soldiers competently repelled another reconnaissance attempt with a battle near Berestove and Bilohorivka. The occupiers also launched missile and air strikes near Soledar, Pokrovske and Svitlodarsk.

    In the Avdiyiv, Kurakhiv, Novopavliv and Zaporizhzhia directions, systematic shelling of the positions of our troops along the contact line continues. The occupiers launched airstrikes near Kamianka, Shcherbaki and Mali Shcherbaki.

    Shelling was recorded in the areas of Novovorontsovka, Kobzartsi, Blahodatne, Bila Krynytsia, Trudolyubivka, Novohryhorivka, Olenivka, Prybuzke, Oleksandrivka, Lupareve and others in the South Buh direction. The enemy launched rocket attacks on the city of Mykolaiv. The threat of repetition of such actions by the enemy in the region remains.

    In order to identify changes in the position of our troops and adjust fire, the occupiers conducted aerial reconnaissance by UAVs of operational-tactical and tactical levels. The enemy continues the engineering equipment of the positions.

    Due to significant losses, the personnel of most units of the occupying forces have a very low level of morale and psychological state and are looking for an opportunity to avoid further participation in hostilities. This is especially common among the occupiers who had direct fire contact with Ukrainian soldiers.

    We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Together to victory!

    Glory to Ukraine!
