Failing to succeed, the enemy launches missile strikes and actively uses UAV strikes to hit critical infrastructure and densely populated cities of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on Facebook on the morning of the 230th day of the heroic resistance of Ukrainians to the Russian military invasion. 

The enemy is not able to stop the successful counteroffensive of the Defence Forces in the Kharkiv and Kherson areas, so it is trying to intimidate and spread panic among the population of Ukraine. 

Mobilization and transfer of reserves by the enemy also do not provide an opportunity to overcome the resistance of the defenders of our country. 

During the previous day, the occupiers launched more than 61 rocket and 32 air strikes and carried out about 92 MLRS attacks. 73 air targets were destroyed by air Defence units in various areas, including 46 cruise missiles and 27 unmanned aerial vehicles.

As a result of a massive missile strike over the past day, the infrastructure of more than 30 settlements was damaged. These are, in particular, Kyiv, Lviv, Rivne, Zhytomyr, Ternopil, Khmelnytskyi, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnytsia, Pryluky, Nizhyn, Konotop, Kharkiv, Kremenchuk, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhzhya, Mykolaiv, Odesa. Civilians of Ukraine were killed and wounded. The threat of enemy missile strikes on critical infrastructure and civilian areas remains.

Also, the occupiers do not stop trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, shell the positions of our troops, focus their efforts on trying to disrupt the counter-offensive actions of the units of the Defence Forces, and try to conduct offensive actions in separate areas.

The situation in the Volyn and Polissya areas has not changed significantly. According to available information, the leadership of the Republic of Belarus continues to support the Russian Federation in the war against Ukraine, allowing the Russian Federation to use the airspace and airfield network to carry out airstrikes on the territory of Ukraine. In the indicated areas, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine are monitoring the situation, there are no signs of the formation of offensive groups on the territory of the Republic of Belarus and the movement of troops, as of 06:00 on 11 October of current year.

In the city of Starobilsk, Luhansk Region, the occupiers are searching for Ukrainian patriots, detaining family members and friends of military personnel, as well as law enforcement officers. In addition, according to available information, in Luhansk Region, under the guise of searching for Ukrainian saboteurs, the invaders are looking for their deserters.
