Details: The situation remained stable on the Volyn, Polissia, and Sivershchyna fronts. On the latter, Russian forces opened artillery fire on the areas around Hremiach, Mykhalchyna Sloboda and Kolos in Chernihiv Oblast and around Starykove and Atynske in Sumy Oblast.

Russia has deployed a group of troops from the Western Military District on the Kharkiv front. They are defending their previously occupied positions and exerting systematic fire on the Ukrainian Defence Forces in order to pin them down.

For example, Russian occupying forces used artillery to fire on the areas around Bazaliivka, Peremoha, Verkhnii Saltiv, Nortsivka, Chepil, Dmytrivka, Barvinkove, Mospanove, Velyka Babka, Sokorivka, and Pryshyb.

On the Sloviansk front, Russian occupying forces continue to hold their defence and are regrouping in an attempt to improve their tactical positions. They used artillery to fire on the positions of Ukrainian troops in the vicinity of Dolyna, Mazanivka, Dibrivne, Hrushuvakha, Adamivka, Husarivka, and Ivanivka.

On the Donetsk front, Russian troops have focused their main efforts on encircling Ukrainian forces in Lysychansk from the south and the west. Russian forces are trying to establish full control over the entire territory of Luhansk Oblast and are conducting assault operations in order to block the delivery of supplies to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

On the Lysychansk front, Russian troops are firing on the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces using gun and rocket artillery in the areas around Siversk, Bilohorivka, Lysychansk, and Vovchoiarivka and are attempting, unsuccessfully, to establish control over part of the main road between Bakhmut and Lysychansk.

Russia has ramped up hostilities on the Kramatorsk front.

On the Bakhmut front, Russia is using artillery to fire on the areas around Berestove, Yakovlivka, Vidrodzhennia, Maiorsk, and the Vuhledarska Thermoelectric Power Plant. Russian forces attempted to improve their tactical positions in the vicinity of Pokrovske but were unsuccessful.

Russian forces fired on the positions of Ukrainian troops along the entire line of contact on the Avdiivka, Kurakhove, Novopavlivka, and Zaporizhzhia fronts using gun and rocket artillery.

On the Pivdennyi Buh front, Russia continued to use mortars and gun and rocket artillery to fire on the areas around Potiomkine, Bereznehuvate, Partyzanske, Kyselivka, Shevchenkove, and Tavriiske, and conducted aerial reconnaissance using UAVs.

Three Russian naval high-precision missile carriers remain in Black Sea waters, at the ready to launch missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine.
