The enemy is trying to maintain the temporarily seized territories, focusing its efforts on restraining the actions of the Defence Forces in certain areas. It is conducting offensive actions in the Bakhmut, Avdiyivka and Novopavlivka areas, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports at the beginning of the 254th day of the heroic resistance of Ukrainians to the Russian military invasion.

Over the past day, the units of the Defence Forces repelled the attacks of the Russian occupiers near the settlements of Verkhnekamyanske, Spirne, Maryinka, Novomykhaylivka, Vodyane and Pavlivka in Donetsk Region.

The enemy is shelling the units of the Ukrainian Defence Forces along the contact line, fortifying the borders in certain areas and conducting aerial reconnaissance. The enemy continues to strike at critical infrastructure and civilian dwellings, violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, laws and customs of warfare.

The threat of new strikes and the use of strike UAVs remains. In particular, from the territory of the Republic of Belarus.

The situation in the Volyn and Polissya areas has not changed significantly. The Republic of Belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine.
