    Glory to Ukraine! The one hundred thirty-sixth (136) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

    There are no significant changes on the Volyn and Polissya directions.

    In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy's attempts to approach the city continue. The enemy tried to advance in the direction of Kochubeivka - Dementiivka with offensive actions. Ukrainian soldiers pushed back the occupiers to their previously occupied positions.
