It has been the 134th  day of Ukraine’s heroic resistance to the russian aggression.

Here is the operational information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 6pm:

The statement of the russian Ministry of Defense about the alleged death of Ukrainian soldiers, clearing the area and setting flags of Ukraine on the Zmiinyi (Snake) island, is miscommunication. All soldiers, who performed the tasks, returned home safely.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, there are no changes in the state and nature of warfare of the armed forces of the republic of belarus. The threat of missile and bomb attacks from the territory of this country remains.

Towards Siversk, to demonstrate its presence, the enemy fired artillery at Kindrativka, Myropillia and Vovkivka. In addition, there were airstrikes near Esmana and Myropillia.

Our soldiers undermined all the enemy’s attempts to move towards Sosnivka. The assault was repulsed and the invaders retreated to previously occupied positions.

In the east of our country, the enemy is still trying to establish full control over Luhansk oblast.

Towards Sloviansk, the invaders again unsuccessfully stormed Bohorodychne trying to completely seize it. Our soldiers severely suppressed that attempt.

The enemy shelled the areas of Adamivka, Bohorodychne, Chervone, Dibrivne, Dolyna,  Karnaukhivka,  Krasnopillia, Mazanivka, Nikopol, Novopavlivka and Sulihivka with barrel and reactive artillery. Near the latter,  assault and army aircraft was used for airstrikes.

On July 7, Johnson announced his resignation and said he would remain as Prime Minister until a new Conservative Party leader and head of government was elected.

Ukrainian refugees who have received temporary protection status in the EU countries will be able to use Ukrainian driver’s licenses without exchanging it for the EU one. This decision was made by the European Parliament. Ukrainians who worked as bus or truck drivers will be able to confirm certificates of professional suitability in the EU.
