    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 15 October 2022 07:12

    The two hundred-thirty-fourth (234) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.

    The aggressor continues to focus his efforts on attempts to reach the administrative border of Donetsk oblast, as well as holding captured districts of Kharkiv, Luhansk, Zaporizhzшya, Mykolaiv and Kherson oblasts.

    The enemy does not stop striking the critical infrastructure and civilian facilities of our country. During the past day, the infrastructure and civilians of Kharkiv, Kostyantynivka, Soledar, Bakhmut, Chumaky, Lebedynske, Zaporizhzhia, Davydiv Brid and Mirne were affected. Dnipropetrovsk oblast and the city of Ochakiv were hit by Iranian attack UAVs. Our defenders managed to knock down six out of nine.

    The enemy continues to use winged, aviation, anti-aircraft guided missiles and attack UAVs for their crimes.

    Over the past 24 hours, the occupiers have launched six rocket and thirty air strikes, carried out forty-eight MLRS attacks.

    The situation in the Volyn and Poliske directions has not changed significantly.

    The enemy fired in other directions:

    in the Siversky direction - from rocket artillery, in the area of Rozhkovychi settlement of Sumy oblast. The occupiers also conducted reconnaissance in the area of Bleshnya, Chernihiv oblast, using an unmanned aerial vehicle, which was shot down;

    in the Slobozhanskyi direction - from mortars and barrel artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Hatyshche, Vovchanski Khutory, Starytsa and Dvorichne;

    in the Kramatorsk direction - from mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of Verkhnokamianske, Vyshneve, Hrekivka, Hryhorivka, Zarichne, Kovalivka, Makiivka, Nadiya, Novovodyane, Olhivka, Pershotravneve, Rozdolivka, Tabaivka, Terny and Yampolivka settlements;

    in the Bakhmut direction - from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Yakovlivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Opytne, Klishchiivka, Odradivka, Zelenopillia, Kurdyumivka, Mayorsk and New York;

    in the Avdiivka region - from tanks and artillery, in the areas of Kamianka, Tonenke, Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Vodyane, Opytne, Nevelske, Maryinka and Krasnohorivka settlements.

    In the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhia directions, the enemy did not conduct offensive actions and continues to engineer defensive lines and positions. Fired mortars, barrel and rocket artillery on more than twenty districts of populated areas. Among them are Velyka Novosilka, Vremivka, Zolota Nyva, Vuhledar, Pavlivka, Mykilske and Novodanilivka.

    More than thirty settlements along the contact line were hit by fire in the South Buh region.

    According to available information, a large number of wounded people are being admitted to medical facilities in the temporarily occupied territories. So, in one of the hospitals of the city of Donetsk, about 100 wounded people arrived this week. Hospitals are overcrowded in the city of Tokmak, Zaporizhzhia region. According to information from local residents, civilians are not accepted in hospitals due to the workload of doctors and the lack of beds. Due to the low quality of medical care and the refusal of the command of the russian occupying forces to evacuate the seriously wounded to the territory of russia, the mortality rate among them exceeds 50%.

    According to the updated information, the destruction of the enemy's personnel and equipment in the previous days in the Zaporizhzhia oblast was confirmed. Thus, as a result of the effective actions of the Defense Forces in the areas of the settlements of Orihiv, Kinski Rozdory and Tokmak, about 100 occupiers were injured. Among them, more than 25 have just been mobilized. Four S-300 complexes were destroyed in the area of Berdyansk.

    The Defence Forces successfully repelled enemy attacks in the Donetsk oblast. In particular, in the areas of the settlements of Berestove, Yakovlivka, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Opytne, Ivanhrad, Spirne, Nevelske, Maryinka, Bilohorivka, Terny, Novomykhailivka, and Krasnohorivka.

    During the past 24 hours, the Air Force of the Defence Forces carried out about thirty strikes. It was confirmed that twenty-five areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as three anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy, were destroyed. In addition, our air defence units shot down nine unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Missile troops and artillery struck four control points, fifteen areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, twelve warehouses with ammunition, one artillery installation and twenty other important targets during the day.
