Ukraine briefly:

It has been the 152nd day of the Ukrainian heroic resistance to the russian invasion. 

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

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation did not significantly change. The units of the Armed Forces of the republic of belarus continue strengthening security in the border areas of Brest and Homel oblasts. They are also involved in combat training at military training grounds. 

Towards Siversk, to demonstrate its presence and suppress the actions of our troops, the enemy continues to keep separate units of the russian armed forces in the border areas of Bryansk and Kursk oblasts. The enemy fired barreled and rocket artillery at Mykhalchyna Sloboda in Chernihiv oblast, as well as Bilopillia, Pisky, and Ryasne in Sumy oblast.

Towards Kharkiv, the enemy fires from tanks, barrel and rocket artillery near Borshchova, Kharkiv, Malynivka, Udy, Verkhnyi Saltiv, and many other settlements. There were airstrikes near Prudianka and Petrivka. As a result of fighting near Tsupivka – Dementiivka, Ukrainian soldiers inflicted significant losses on the occupiers.

Towards Sloviansk, shelling was recorded in the areas of Adamivka, Barvinkove, Bohorodychne, Dibrovne, Dolyna, Chepil, Hrushuvakha, Karnaukhivka, Konstantynivka, Mazanivka, Nova Dmytrivka, Nortsivka, Nova Mykolaivka, Petrivske,  and Privillia. The enemy launched an airstrike near Yavirske. The invaders are trying to replenish their losses in manpower and equipment.

Towards Kramatorsk, the enemy fired barreled and rocket artillery at Kryva Luka, Platonivka, Zakitne, Siversk, Verkhnokamianske, Zvanivka, Hryhorivka, Ivano-Dariivka and Spirne. Acraft was applied near Hryhorivka and Serebrianka.

The enemy attempted to approach Spirne and Ivano-Dariivka, received a tough rebuff and withdrew.

Towards Bakhmut, the enemy shelling was recorded in the areas Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Berestove, Bilohorivka, Ivanove, Kodema, Kurdiumivka,  Maiorsk, New York, Novoluhanske, Pokrovske, Soledar, Travneve, Vesela Dolyna, Yakovlivka,  and Zaitseve.

The enemy launched airstrikes near Soledar, Pokrovske, New York and on the territory of the Vuhlehirsk TPP. Assault operations were conducted towards Klynove – Pokrovske and Vladimyrivka – Pokrovske. The enemy suffered losses and withdrew. In the area of the Vuhlehirsk TPP, the enemy’s individual units were partially successful.

Towards Avdiivka, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia, there were no active enemy’s operations. The invaders conducted aerial reconnaissance using UAVs. Airstrikes were carried out in the areas of Kamiana, Poltavka, Shevchenko and Vesele. 

Towards the South Buh, mutual shelling of barrel, rocket artillery and tanks along the contact line continues. An airstrike was recorded near Olhyne. The enemy relies on aerial reconnaissance using UAVs.

According to available information, there are two sea-based carriers of cruise Kalibr missiles outside their bases.

Enemy personnel are demoralized. In some areas, the russian command sends their manpower into attacks without backup with armored vehicles. Thus, officers protect serviceable equipment and try to avenge subordinates for deliberately disabling weapons. This practice of sabotage is common among hostile privates.

The National Union of Journalists of Ukraine reports that during five months of a full-scale war, the russian military killed 37 media workers in Ukraine. Among those killed are 8 journalists who performed their professional duties, 12 media workers are civilian victims. 17 media representatives were mobilised in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“There are no issues with mobilization in the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” said Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov. All necessary positions are occupied. If mobilization takes place today, it is for certain specialties. The head of the Ministry of Defense condemned certain recruitment centres “acting as per the outdated model” by issuing summonses as punishment because it discredits the modern army.

4.5 million internally displaced persons are registered in Ukraine. This was reported by the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories. This is the largest displacement since World War II in Europe in a very short time. Lack of housing and money are the most acute challenges for migrants. 

Despite the war, Ukraine will celebrate all important historical dates, including Independence Day on August 24. The President of Ukraine points out that due to security precautions and the fact that all funds go to the front today, there will be no special festivities.
