Thus, according to the 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 Kupyansk sector, the Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled one enemy attack near Ivanivka, Kharkiv region.

In the Lyman sector, Ukrainian troops repelled 15 Russian attacks in the areas of Bilohorivka, Luhansk region; Terny, Yampolivka, Rozdolivka, and north of Vesele, Donetsk region.

In the Bakhmut sector, Ukrainian troops repelled four attacks near Klishchiivka, Donetsk region.

In the Avdiivka sector, Ukrainian defenders repelled four Russian attacks near Berdychi and Pervomaiske in the Donetsk region.

In the Novopavlivka sector, the Ukrainian Defense Forces are holding back the Russian army near Novomykhailivka, where the invaders tried to break through the defense 22 times.

In the Orikhiv sector, Russia attacked the Ukrainian positions 4 times near Staromaiorske in the Donetsk region; southwest of Bilohirsk and northwest of Verbove in the Zaporizhzhia region.

In the Kherson sector, Russia has not abandoned its intention to drive Ukrainian units from their footholds on the left bank of the Dnipro River. However, it did not conduct any offensive (assault) actions over the past day.

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