Quote: "During the day’s fighting, the enemy was trying to improve its tactical position by carrying out an assault on the Ternovi Pody-Liubomyrivka and Chkalove-Bezimenne fronts. Forces from approximately two platoons per company with supporting tanks were used by them. In both cases, they were unsuccessful, suffered losses and retreated.

The enemy kept bombarding and shelling our positions throughout the day of fighting. Their aircraft carried out 15 strikes.

Despite all this, our units are keeping the frontiers under our control, responding with fire damage and fighting off Russian attempts to improve their tactical position."

Details: Ukrainian aircraft launched two strikes against the Russian forces near Novopetrivka in Kherson Oblast.

Ukrainian rocket artillery units have completed approximately 300 firing missions.

The strikes were aimed at 3 areas where [Russian] equipment and weapons were concentrated, as well as 2 command posts and an electronic warfare system.

"In order to dispel the occupiers’ myths about restoring bridges, a fire strike on Antonivka Bridge once again proved it is not suitable to be used,'' Operational Command Pivden (South) commented.

Operational Command Pivden (South) reported that the Russian forces lost 59 soldiers, a tank, five 152-mm howitzers, including a self-propelled Msta-B and Msta-S, a command-and-control vehicle, as well as 12 other armoured vehicles.

In the Black Sea, 12 warships are manoeuvring off the coast of temporarily occupied Crimea, with 4 of them armed with more than 30 Kalibr missiles.
