Near the state Ukrainian border with Russia and Belarus, the situation remains unchanged. No signs of the formation of offensive groups have been detected. Certain units of the Armed Forces of Belarus are performing tasks in the areas bordering Ukraine.

At the same time, the Russian army continued shelling the entire borderline with mortars and artillery: over 40 settlements across the Chernihiv, Sumy, and Kharkiv regions were attacked.
