Quote: "The enemy continues to focus its efforts on establishing full control over the territory of Donetsk Oblast, holding the temporarily captured districts of Kherson Oblast, [as well as] part of Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia and Mykolaiv oblasts.
There is still a threat of massive air and missile strikes on military and civilian infrastructure throughout the territory of Ukraine.
In the waters of the Black Sea, carriers of the Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles of the Russian occupying forces are still in the stand-by mode."
Details: On 5 September, the Russian forces carried out more than 40 launches from MLRS and more than 25 airstrikes, aiming to hit the military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine.
The Russian forces launched airstrikes on the towns and villages in Kharkiv Oblast: Zalyman, Dmytrivka, Bohorodychne, Zaitseve, Kodema, Soledar, Yakovlivka; Krasnohorivka in Donetsk Oblast and Dorozhnianka in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.
On the Pivdennyi Buh front, the Russians focused their efforts on the defence of previously occupied lines and positions, and kept shelling the areas of Kvitneve, Shevchenkove, Liubomyrivka, Novohrihorivka, Posad-Pokrovske, Ukrainka, Prybuzke, Lymany, Lupareve, Myrne, Oleksandrivka and Tavriiske.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces reports that the command of military units of the 1st Army Corps of the Russian occupying forces is taking measures to force conscripts to switch to contract service, which makes it impossible for them to be dismissed from military service within three years.
In addition, one-time payments for signing such contracts do not apply to this category, which significantly reduces the morale and psychological state of personnel.
The Russian forces continue to commit illegal actions in Kherson Oblast. Thus, the Russian occupiers turned off the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant, which caused the blackout in part of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts.
Ukrainian defenders successfully repelled offensive attempts of the Russian occupying forces near Bilohorivka, Hryhorivka, Pokrovske, Bakhmutske, Lozove, Spartak, Soledar, Zaitseve and Semyhiria. On the Kramatorsk front, they saw certain tactical success and forced the Russian troops out of their previously occupied positions.
During the day, in order to support the actions of the ground groups, Ukrainian aviation carried out more than 15 strikes, targeting the personnel, combat and special equipment, as well as other military facilities of the Russian forces.
Missile troops and artillery of the defence forces continue to provide fire support for the actions of ground troops.
According to the updated information, the losses of the Russian forces have been confirmed. As a result of a successful fire attack near Kupiansk, Kharkiv Oblast, the occupiers lost more than 100 servicemen killed and wounded, and two combat vehicles were destroyed.
In the city of Kherson, more than 30 servicemen and 3 tanks of the Russian forces were hit; an anti-aircraft missile system and six trucks of the Russian forces were destroyed near and at the crossing of the Antonivka Road Bridge.
It is reported that the successful actions of the defence forces let them disable the crossings near Kherson and once again nullified the aggressor's attempts to resume the transfer of troops across the Dnipro River.
