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, 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 area of responsibility of the Khortytsia operational-strategic group in the Kupyansk direction, Ukrainian defenders repelled two Russian attacks near Synkivka, Kharkiv region.

In the Zaporizhzhia direction, the Ukrainian Defense Forces fended off three Russian attacks west of Verbove and Robotyne in Zaporizhzhia region.

In the area of responsibility of the Odesa operational-strategic group in the Kherson direction, Ukrainian soldiers continue to expand their foothold. Despite significant losses, the Russian troops keep trying to drive Ukraine's units out of their positions. Over the past day, they made one unsuccessful assault on Ukrainian troops' positions.
