Over the past day, Russian troops launched six missile and 24 air strikes, fired more than 65 times from multiple launch rocket systems, including at civilian infrastructure. There are dead and wounded among the civilian population, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said in a morning address on the 375th day of the large-scale Russian invasion.

The threat of missile attacks remains high throughout Ukraine.

Russia is focusing its main efforts on conducting offensive actions in the areas of Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiyivka and Shakhtarske. Yesterday, Ukrainian defenders repelled over 130 attacks in these areas.

In the town of Nova Kakhovka, Kherson Region, the Russians are using civilians as human shields by placing their air defence systems in residential areas.

The Russian occupying army is losing control of the so-called "Cossack battalions" on the battlefield, the General Staff said. In particular, the command of the Cossack battalion Step/Tiger, which is performing tasks in the area of Vuhledar, is extremely dissatisfied with the leadership of the Russian Federation Armed Forces and neglects interaction with the units of the Russian occupying army.

Over the past day, the aviation of the Ukrainian Defence Forces carried out 18 strikes on the clusters of Russian personnel and military equipment, as well as twp strikes on anti-aircraft missile systems, one on an ammunition depot and one on an automobile bridge. Also, Ukrainian defenders shot down four reconnaissance and attack UAVs of various types.

Over the course of the day, missile and artillery units destroyed three Russian manpower clusters, two positions of anti-aircraft missile systems, and two electronic warfare stations.
