In the northeastern border area, the Russian army maintains a military presence, carries out active sabotage activities to prevent the deployment of Ukrainian troops to critical frontline areas, and increases the density of minefields along the state border in the Belgorod region.

In the Kupyansk direction, Ukrainian soldiers repelled about 5 Russian attacks near Ivanivka, Kharkiv region. In the Lyman direction, Ukraine's troops hold steadfastly and successfully repulsed all hostile attacks near Nadiia, Luhansk region.

In the Bakhmut direction, the Ukrainian army defeated all Russian attacks near 4 settlements in Donetsk region. Ukrainian defense forces continue assault operations south of Bakhmut in Donetsk region, inflicting losses in manpower and equipment on the Russian army, and consolidating their positions.

In the Avdiivka direction, Russia keeps trying to encircle Avdiivka, actively using aviation, but Ukraine's troops are holding the line and inflicting significant losses on the Russian forces. Russia's offensives near 4 localities in Donetsk region were unsuccessful, where the Defense Forces repelled over 10 hostile attacks.

In the Marinka direction, the Russian troops launched unsuccessful assault operations in the areas of Marinka and Pobieda in the Donetsk region. The Ukrainian military repelled about 15 attacks.

In the Shakhtarsk and Zaporizhzhia directions, Ukrainian defenders repulsed all Russian attacks near Novomykhailivka in Donetsk region and southeast of Mala Tokmachka in Zaporizhzhia region.

At the same time, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continued to conduct offensives in the Melitopol direction, having partially succeeded south of Robotyne, inflicting losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation forces, and depleting the Russian enemy along the entire front line.

In the Kherson direction, the Defense Forces are engaged in counter-battery combat, inflicting fire damage on Russia's rear.
