In the Avdiivka direction, Ukrainian defenders rebuffed 5 attacks near 3 settlements in the Donetsk region, where the Russian army tried to drive Ukraine's units out of their positions.

In the Novopavlivka sector, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continued to hold back Russian forces in the areas of Novomykhailivka and Heorhiivka in the Donetsk region, where Russia's troops, supported by air, tried to break through the Ukrainian defense 21 times.

In the Orikhiv direction, the Russian army made 2 unsuccessful attempts to attack the positions of Ukrainian troops near Staromaiorske, Donetsk region, and Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia region, over the past day.

In the Kherson direction, Russia does not abandon its intention to drive Ukrainian troops from their footholds on the left bank of the Dnipro River. Over the past day, they made 6 unsuccessful attacks on the positions of Ukrainian troops.
