In the Kharkiv direction, the russian occupiers used the sabotage and reconnaissance groups to identify weaknesses in the defense of Ukrainian defenders in the Dementievka, Rubizhne, and Pyatihatki districts, reported the General Staff of the Armed Forces.

The troops discovered the enemy and inflicted losses on them, so they retreated.

The occupiers' repeated attempts at combat reconnaissance and assaults were also unsuccessful.

Thus, in the Kharkiv direction near Kochubiivka, the russians tried to conduct combat reconnaissance. The Armed Forces did not give them any chance of success, so the invaders retreated with losses.

A similar situation was in the Slovyansk direction near Krasnopillya.

Also, units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine forced the rushists (russian + fascist - translator's note) to leave the village of Dmytrivka, Izium district, Kharkiv region. In the Severodonetsk direction in the areas of Sirotin and Metolkin, Ukrainian fighters successfully repelled an enemy assault. Therefore, the enemy withdrew to the previously occupied positions.

In the Bakhmut direction near Girske, Ukrainian forces used selective fire to stop the enemy's attempt at combat reconnaissance. The attacks in the areas of Berestove and Kodem were unsuccessful for the occupiers. After regrouping with artillery support, the invaders attempted to storm near Nyrkove, were met with resistance and suffered losses.
