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.

In the Kupyansk direction, the Russian troops, with the support of aviation, made 3 unsuccessful assaults on the positions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces near the towns of Synkivka, Tabaivka, and Berestove in the Kharkiv region.

In the Lyman direction, Ukrainian soldiers repelled 7 attacks near Bilohorivka, Luhansk region, and Spirne, Donetsk region, where the Russian army, supported by air power, tried to break through the Ukraine's defense.

In the Bakhmut direction, the soldiers repelled 5 Russian attacks in the vicinity of Ivanivske, Andriivka, and Klishchiivka in the Donetsk region.

In the Avdiivka direction, Ukrainian defenders repulsed 10 hostile attacks in the areas of Berdychi, Tonenke, Pervomaiske, and Nevelske.

In the Novopavlivka direction, the Defense Forces are holding back the Russian army in the areas of 5 settlements, where the Russian troops, with the support of aviation, tried to break through the defense of Ukrainian troops 28 times.

In the Orikhiv direction, the invading forces attacked the positions of Ukrainian defenders 10 times with the support of air power near Staromaiorske, south of Novodarivka in the Donetsk region and near Robotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region.

In the Kherson direction, the Russian army does not abandon its intention to drive Ukraine's units from their footholds on the left bank of the Dnipro River. Thus, over the past day, two assaults on the positions of Ukrainian troops were carried out.

At the same time, Ukrainian soldiers continue to inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation forces, depleting the Russian enemy along the entire front line.
