Thus, according to Ukraine's General Staff, the operational situation has not changed in the area of the northern Ukrainian border with Belarus.

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

In the Avdiivka direction, in the area of responsibility of the Tavria operational-strategic group, Ukrainian defenders continue to hold back the Russian enemy, who keeps trying to surround Avdiivka. Ukrainian soldiers are steadfastly holding the line, inflicting significant losses on the occupation army. Thus, the Defense Forces repelled 29 attacks near Avdiivka and another 15 attacks near Pervomaiske and Nevelske in the Donetsk region over the past day.

In the Marinka direction, Ukrainian troops are holding back the adversary near Heorhiivka and Novomykhailivka in the Donetsk region, where they repelled 7 attacks.

In the Shakhtarsk direction, Ukrainian defenders repulsed an attack south of Zolota Nyva in the Donetsk region.

In the area of responsibility of the Odesa operational-strategic group in the Kherson direction, Ukraine's Defense Forces keep holding their positions and repelling the occupation forces' attacks. Despite significant losses, the Russian army keeps attempting to drive Ukrainian units out of their positions. Thus, over the past day, Russia carried out 7 unsuccessful assault operations.

At the same time, Ukraine's soldiers are actively inflicting losses in manpower and equipment on the occupying forces, depleting the Russian enemy along the entire front line.
