Over the past day, the russian Federation carried out 32 air strikes and 6 missile strikes, carried out 84 attacks from rocket salvo systems, in particular, on civilian infrastructure.

The threat of rocket attacks by the occupiers remains significant throughout the territory of Ukraine.
The enemy is concentrating its main efforts on conducting offensive operations in the Kupyansk, Lymansk, Bakhmutsk, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk directions. Last day, our defenders repelled more than 150 enemy attacks against them.

In the Volyn, Poliske, Siversk and Slobozhansk directions, the operational situation has not changed significantly, and no offensive groups of the enemy have been detected.

There are dead and wounded among the civilian population.

In Simferopol of the temporarily occupied Republic of Crimea, the Russian occupation authorities, fearing the activation of the pro-Ukrainian movement and the actions of patriotic groups, are creating so-called "voluntary wives". It is known that due to the war in Ukraine, there is a certain shortage of law enforcement officers, therefore, in addition to patrolling the city, one of the tasks of the mentioned units should be the detection of troublemakers and saboteurs.

Continuing the armed aggression, the Russian army of occupation suffers daily significant losses in manpower. Previously, we reported on overcrowded medical facilities in temporarily occupied settlements in the Donetsk Oblast. The trend has not disappeared - recently one of the hospitals in the city of Horlivka received an instruction to increase the number of beds for receiving wounded invaders.

Last day, the Ukrainian aviation carried out 14 strikes on the areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment of the occupiers, as well as 2 - on anti-aircraft missile systems at firing positions. Also, Ukrainian defenders shot down an enemy Su-34 aircraft and 8 reconnaissance and attack UAVs of various types.

Units of missile troops and artillery, in turn, hit the control post, 3 enemy concentration areas, an ammunition depot, 2 PMM depots, and also the enemy's electronic warfare station.

Last, but not the least, russia's losses in manpower for the last 24 hours are as follows:
