Frontline situation

Over the last day, 57 combat engagements took place. In total, the Russian troops launched 4 missile strikes, 42 airstrikes, and about 26 attacks with multiple launch rocket systems at the Ukrainian troops' positions and populated areas.

Private residential buildings and other civilian infrastructure were destroyed and damaged. Unfortunately, there are dead and wounded among the civilian population.

The operational situation in eastern and southern Ukraine remains difficult.

Near the state Ukrainian border with Russia and Belarus, the situation hasn't changed significantly, and no enemy offensive groups have been detected. 

At the same time, the Russian army continued shelling the entire borderline with mortars and artillery: over 15 settlements across the Chernihiv, Sumy, and Kharkiv regions were attacked. 

Russian attacks in frontline Ukrainian regions

In the Kupyansk direction, 10 settlements of the Kharkiv region came under artillery shelling. 

In the Lyman direction, over 10 settlements in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions came under Russian fire. 

In the Bakhmut direction, about 10 localities in the Donetsk region were attacked by the invading Russian forces. 

In the Avdiivka direction, more than 10 settlements in the Donetsk region were attacked. 

In the Marinka direction, over 10 settlements in the Donetsk region came under shelling. 

In the Shakhtarsk direction, over 10 localities in the Donetsk region were shelled. 

In the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions, about 30 towns and villages were subjected to numerous attacks by the occupying Russian army.

"The Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to conduct offensive operations in the Melitopol sector, offensive (assault) operations in the Bakhmut sector, inflict losses in manpower and equipment on the occupation forces, and exhaust the enemy along the entire front line," the General Staff added.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces’ strikes against Russian troops

Over the day, Ukrainian aviation launched 10 strikes on the invading Russian troops’ military positions. 

Air defense destroyed two Shaheds and one Kh-59 guided missile.

The missile troops hit 6 manpower concentration areas, a command center, 17 artillery pieces, 3 air defense facilities, and an enemy fuel and lubricant depot.

  • On November 14, the commander of the Ukrainian Land Forces, Oleksandr Syrskyi, said that the Russians were conducting offensive operations in several eastern directions simultaneously.
