In the Novopavlivka sector, the Ukrainian Defense Forces are holding back the Russians in the areas of Krasnohorivka, Heorhiivka, Novomykhailivka, east of Vodiane, and Urozhaine, where the Russian army, supported by aviation, tried to break through the Ukrainian defense 20 times. More than 10 settlements came under artillery and mortar fire.

In the Orikhiv sector, the Russian army, with the support of aviation, attacked the Ukrainian positions 3 times near Staromaiorske in the Donetsk region and Robotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region. About 20 settlements came under artillery and mortar fire.

In the Kherson sector, Russia does not abandon its intention to drive Ukrainian units from their footholds on the left bank of the Dnipro River. Thus, during the day, one attack was made on the positions of Ukrainian troops near the village of Krynky in the Kherson region. More than 15 settlements came under artillery and mortar fire.
