    Glory to Ukraine! The two hundred-second (202) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

    The enemy continues to focus its efforts on establishing control over the territory of Donetsk oblast, maintaining the temporarily captured territories and disrupting the offensive of our troops in certain directions.

    The enemy conducts aerial reconnaissance and inflicts fire damage on the units of our troops, tries to take measures to restore the lost position, moves its troops. A further threat of air and missile strikes remains on the entire territory of Ukraine.

    The enemy continues its tactics of terror and intimidation of the civilian population. The cities of Kharkiv and Lozova were hit. Airstrikes and shelling from anti-aircraft missiles damaged the infrastructure in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Vesela Dolyna, Zaytseve, Yuryivka, New York, Pervomaiske, Kamianka, Stepove, Mali Shcherbaki, Sukhy Stavok, Kostromka, Bila Krynytsia, and Myrne.

    In general, during the past 24 hours, the russian occupiers launched two missile strikes, twenty-five air strikes, and carried out eleven MLRS strikes on military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine.

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

    In other directions, the enemy shelled the infrastructure with mortars, tanks, combat vehicles, barrel and jet artillery:

    in the Siversky direction - near Atynske and Stukalivka, Sumy oblast;

    in the Kharkiv direction - in the districts of Kozacha Lopan, Baranivka and Kupiansk;

    in the Kramatorsk direction - in the areas of the settlements of Pryshyb, Bilogorivka, Kramatorsk, Sloviyansk, Staryi Karavan, Starodubivka, Spirne, Rozdolivka and Hryhorivka;

    Enemy artillery shelling along the contact line was recorded in the South Buh direction. In addition, the enemy carried out aerial reconnaissance by UAVs - they made 23 flies.

    Due to heavy losses during the hostilities, the level of morale and psychological state in the units formed in the temporarily occupied territories decreased significantly. According to available information, in order to improve the state of combat readiness of the 2nd Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade of the 2nd Army Corps, the command of the brigade issued an order not to pay stipends to servicemen who are temporarily absent, in particular, undergoing treatment. Resumption of payments occurs only after the presentation of supporting documents and with the personal permission of the commander.

    The defense forces successfully repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Zayitseve, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Krasnohorivka, Vodyane, Bezimenne and Novohrihorivka settlements.

    During the day, the aviation of the Defense Forces carried out nine strikes - damage was inflicted on seven strongholds and places where the enemy's manpower and equipment were concentrated, and two positions of his anti-aircraft missile systems were destroyed. Losses of manpower and equipment of the occupiers are clarified.

    Over the past day, units of missile forces and artillery hit command and control points, areas where the enemy's manpower and combat equipment are concentrated. The radio-electronic warfare complex, the "Zoopark" radar station, artillery units and ammunition depots fell into the affected area.

    Up to two hundred bloody war crimes committed by the Russian occupiers are recorded every day on the temporarily occupied and already liberated Ukrainian territories. Mine danger in liberated towns and villages remains high, with more than seventy thousand square kilometres in ten oblasts mined with ammunition and explosives. The defense forces are taking measures to return peaceful life to the liberated communities as soon as possible.

    Let's keep our weapons strong! Believe in the Armed Forces! United we are invincible! Let's win together!

    Glory to Ukraine!
