The two hundred-eleventh (211) day of resistance to the russian military large-scale invasion continues. The enemy continues to focus its efforts on attempts to fully occupy Donetsk Region, organize Defence and maintain the captured territories, and also tries to disrupt the active actions of the Defence Forces in certain areas – the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine informs.
Russians fire at our positions along the contact line, take measures to regroup the troops and constantly conduct aerial reconnaissance.
Over the past 24 hours, the enemy has launched 8 missile and 16 air strikes, fired 115 anti-aircraft missiles at military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine, violating the norms of international humanitarian law, the laws and customs of warfare. As a result of the attacks of the russian troops, the infrastructure of more than 40 settlements was damaged. These are, in particular, Siversk, Maryinka, Vesele, Neskuchne, Yehorivka, Bezymenne, Bilohirka, Myrolyubivka, and Visokopillya.
The threat of air and missile strikes remains on the entire territory of Ukraine.
The situation has not changed in the Volyn and Polissya areas.
In other areas, the enemy fired from tanks, mortars and artillery of various calibers:
in the Siversky area - near Senkivka and Huta-Studenetska settlements of Chernihiv Region;

In Mykolayiv Region, the occupiers seized milk trucks from territorial communities and used them to covertly deliver fuel to the war zone – the General Staff notes.
