They also conducted an airstrike near Spirne, and conducted an offensive battle on the Yaremivka – Dolyna axis with no success, so they withdrew.

On the Bakhmut front, the Russian occupying forces used tubed and rocket artillery in the areas of the settlements of Yakovlivka, Travneve, Kodema, Pokrovske, Rozdolivka, Kurdiumivka, Zaitseve, Bakhmut and Soledar. They conducted airstrikes near Yakovlivka, Soledar and Kodema.

The invaders had no success on all the indicated fronts and retreated. Russian soldiers conduct offensive operations on the Novoluhanske – Kodema axis, and hostilities continue.

On the Avdiivka front, the Russian occupiers shelled the areas of Pisky, Prechystivka, Shevchenko, Volodymyrivka, Nevelske, Netailove and  Krasnohorivka. They led assault operations in the areas of Lozove – Pisky and Vesele – Pisky, but were unsuccessful and withdrew.

"The Russian occupiers suffer losses, are demoralised and look for any opportunity to sustain light wounds. In order to get back to the territory of the Russian Federation, they are resorting to self-mutilation and various simulations of poor health," the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine noted.
