Russia continues to conduct active offensive actions of varying intensity along the entire frontline, focusing its main efforts on the Pokrovske and Kurakhove directions. The Russian army has concentrated the largest number of its assault units from eight strike brigades here, Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyy said based on the results of work in military units fighting against the occupiers on the eastern front.

Heavy fighting in these areas has been going on for several months. Fighting continues in the areas of Chasiv Yar, Klishchiyivka and Kalynivka. 

"The enemy is trying to capture these localities to expand the geography of its advance towards Kramatorsk and Slovyansk," explained the Chief of Staff.

He added that the Russian military is unsuccessfully storming Bilohorivka, "which has become an eloquent example of the resilience of the Ukrainian army in Luhansk Region". 

"The enemy is rushing to Siversk from two directions, but each time rolls back, leaving the corpses of its soldiers. In the Kharkiv sector, the enemy is conducting unsuccessful actions, trying to move forward into the depths of our combat formations and create a so-called "security belt". In Vovchansk, the enemy is bogged down, despite the forces and means involved, which are constantly replenished by units from other areas," said Syrskyy. 

In the Zaporizhzhya sector, the Russians carried out offensive actions in the areas of Staromayorske and Robotyne, but "without any success". 

"In the area of Krynky, fighting continued to hold the bridgehead and control the islands, with no significant changes in the situation and position of the parties," he added.

Syrskyy noted that in these circumstances, it is very important for Ukraine to hold its borders and positions, prevent a breakthrough in defence, and maximise the destruction of Russian manpower and equipment.
