Over the day, Russian troops carried out 28 air strikes and fired about 20 times from multiple launch rocket systems at the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and populated areas, causing damage to infrastructure and human casualties, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said on the evening of the 469th day of the large-scale Russian invasion.
The likelihood of missile and air strikes across Ukraine remains very high.
Russian troops continue to focus their main efforts on attempts to fully occupy Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Over the day, 21 combat engagements took place there.
According to the General Staff, Russia does not care about the problems of the local population in occupied territories. In particular, after Russian terrorists blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station dam, residents of the village of Kozachi Laheri, who found themselves in the flood zone, did not wait for help from the occupying authorities and tried to leave the partially flooded settlement on their own. However, Russian soldiers, being in a state of intoxication, blocked all possible ways to leave the city and forbade evacuation.
In the town of Hola Prystan, the Russians are forcing the owners of two-storey houses out of their homes and are living in them themselves. The invaders are setting up firing positions on the roofs of these buildings.
Over the day, the Ukrainian aviation conducted 15 strikes on the clusters of Russian personnel and two strikes on anti-aircraft missile systems. Four Russian reconnaissance UAVs were destroyed.
Over the course of the day, Ukraine's missile and artillery units struck four command posts, one cluster of manpower, weapons and military equipment, three ammunition depots, two anti-aircraft missile systems and one radar station.
