The 385th day of Russia's large-scale invasion continues. During the day, the enemy carried out 40 air and 12 missile strikes and fired more than 100 times from multiple launch rocket systems, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports.

One of the rocket strikes hit the town of Kramatorsk - a three-story residential building was damaged, there were dead and wounded among the local population. Another missile attack took place in the town of Zatoka, Odesa Region - one of the buildings of the Zolota Rybka children’s educational institution was damaged by the fragments of the missile. There were no victims or losses among the local population. The enemy also launched a missile attack on a civil infrastructure object in the settlement of Ivanivka, Kherson Region. There are casualties among the local population, and at least one private house has been damaged.

The probability of further missile strikes throughout the territory of Ukraine remains quite high.

The enemy’s main goal during the past day, as before, remained attempts to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions. To do this, they concentrated efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiyivka, Maryinka, and Shakhtarsk areas. Thanks to professional and coordinated actions, our defenders repelled more than 90 enemy attacks in the indicated directions.

Volyn, Polissya, Siversk and Slobozhansk areas: the operational situation has not changed significantly. The enemy maintains a military presence near the state border of Ukraine, but the formation of offensive groups has not been detected. At the same time, the enemy continued to engineer terrain in the border areas of Bryansk and Kursk Regions.

In Horlivka, which is located on the territory of the temporarily occupied Donetsk Region, about 90 servicemen of the Russian army, who are being treated in medical institutions of the city, will soon be sent to the town of Urzuf to undergo a medical examination to determine their suitability for further military service. At the same time, the occupiers in Horlivka received an order to conduct another wave of mobilization in the town to replenish the manpower of the units, which are temporarily withdrawn from the combat zone due to the loss of combat capability. It is planned to mobilize about 500 people from those categories who previously received delay for reasons of limited or complete unfitness for military service.

During the day, the Air Force made 9 strikes on the areas where the occupiers were concentrated, 3 strikes on the enemy’s SAM deployment sites, and 3 strikes on other important objects of the occupiers.
