There were 44 combat clashes in the frontline over the last day.

In the area of responsibility of the North operational-strategic group, near the border with Belarus, the operational situation remains without significant changes.

In the northeastern border area, Russian forces maintain a military presence in the border areas, conduct active sabotage activities to prevent the deployment of Ukrainian troops to dangerous areas, and increase the density of minefields along the state border in the Belgorod region.

In the area of responsibility of the Khortytsia operational-strategic group in the Kupyansk and Lyman directions, the Russian troops did not conduct any offensive (assault) actions. In the Bakhmut direction, they unsuccessfully tried to regain the lost position near Klishchiivka, Luhansk region.

They also tried to regain their lost position southwest of Avdiivka in Donetsk region to no avail.
