    Glory to Ukraine! The one hundred fortieth (140) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

    The situation has not undergone significant changes in the Volyn and Polissya directions.

    In the Siversky direction, the enemy is taking measures to strengthen the counter-intelligence regime in the border areas of the Kursk region. The areas of the settlements of Vovkivka, Volfyne and Pokrovka of the Sumy oblast were shelled with mortars. Also, in Sumy oblast, it conducted aerial reconnaissance by UAVs near Zarutsky, Shalygyne and Starykove.

    In the Kharkiv direction, the occupiers are concentrating their main efforts on preventing the advance of our troops.

    Once again, Ukrainian soldiers repelled an enemy assault in the direction of Dementiivka. Currently, the enemy is restocking supplies and trying to replenish units that have suffered losses of personnel and military equipment.

    Our defenders successfully repelled the assaults in the directions of Ivanivka and Dolyna and drove the invaders back.

    The enemy was not active in the Kramatorsk direction. Shelled the areas of Mykolaivka, Kryvya Luka, Siversk, Serebryanka, Verkhnyokamyanske and Ivano-Daryivka with barrel artillery and mortars. Air strikes were recorded near Spirne.

    In the Bakhmut direction, the occupiers fired from barrel and rocket artillery in the areas of the settlements of Vyimka, Berestov, Bilohorivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Pokrovske, Bakhmut, Opytne, Vesela Dolyna, Vershyna, Travneve, Vuhlehirska TPP, Kodema, Toretsk, Shumy, Mayorsk and Zaitseve. An air strike was carried out near Vershyna.

    All attempts of enemy assaults in the direction of Vesela Dolyna, Yakovlivka and Vershyna were nullified by our soldiers with accurate fire. The occupiers, with losses, withdrew. The enemy also clumsily failed reconnaissance by combat in the Pokrovsk area.

    In the Avdiyivka, Kurakhivka, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia directions, the enemy continued shelling from barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line, albeit with less intensity. He also carried out airstrikes in the vicinity of Maly Shcherbaky, Mala Tokmachka, Kamianske and Novomykhailivka. Conducted aerial reconnaissance of the UAVs near Novoprokopivka and Mala Tokmachka.

    In the South Buh region, the aggressor's troops fired from tanks, barrel and jet artillery in the areas of the settlements of Potyomkyne, Knyazivka, Osokorivka, Dobryanka, Bila Krynytsya, Partizanske, Blahodatne, Kyselivka, Novohryhorivka, Zorya, Olenivka, Kotlyareve, Shevchenkove, Luch, Posad-Pokrovske , Stepova Dolyna, Ukrainka, Prybuzke, Nova Zorya, Lymany and Lupareve. The enemy also carried out aerial reconnaissance by UAVs.

    In the waters of the Black and Azov seas, the enemy is keeping four carriers of high-precision weapons in readiness for launching missile strikes against objects on the territory of Ukraine.

    In some places, the losses of the enemy exceed the manpower indicators, which significantly affects the general morale and psychological state and becomes a prerequisite for the refusal of personnel to further participate in hostilities against Ukraine. It comes to the point that russian command uses physical violence against subordinates.

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

    Glory to Ukraine!
