Ukraine briefly:

It has been the 155th day of Ukraine’s heroic resistance to the russian military invasion.

Here is operational information regarding the russian invasion as of 6pm.

Towards Volyn, Polissia and Siversk, the situation has not undergone significant changes, except for application of anti-aircraft missile systems to striking from the territory of the republic of belarus on objects in Chernihiv oblast.

There was aerial reconnaissance with UAVs in the areas of Chuhuiv, Liptsi, Malynivka, Pytomnyk, Ruska Lozova and Pechenihy.

Towards Sloviansk, the enemy fired from tanks, barreled and rocket artillery at the settlements of Adamivka, Dolyna, Husarivka, Karnaukhivka, Kurulka, Petrivske, Pryshyb, and Zaliman. An unsuccessful attempt to conduct combat reconnaissance resulted in the enemy’s losses near Brazhkivka.

In the areas of Berestove and Nahirne, russian hostile reconnaissance groups unsuccessfully tried to reveal positions of our troops.

Conducting assault actions, the enemy partially improved its tactical position near the settlements of Soledar and Vershyna. Meanwhile, the enemy’s attempts to conduct assault operations towards Yakovlivka, Bakhmut and Semyhiria failed. The enemy units withdrew, suffering losses.

Towards Avdiivka, supported by tanks, barrel and rocket artillery fire, the enemy resumed assault operations near Avdiivka and Pisky, had no success, and withdrew.

For the purpose of deceiving, the russian occupiers were wearing a Ukrainian field uniform with white bandages on their hands and feet during the assault near Pisky, thus violating the customs of war. 

The enemy also shelled positions of our troops in the areas of Avdiivka, Karlivka, Krasnohorivka, Memryk, Netailove, Nevelske, Novobakhmutivka, Oleksandropol, Opytne, Pisky, and Vesele. There was an airstrike launched near Avdiivka.

In the Black and Azov Seas, three carriers of sea-based cruise Kalibr missiles are ready to use high-precision weapons.

During the five months of the full-scale russian invasion, Ukrainian courts seized the assets of russian and belarusian companies for UAH 39.5 billion. This was reported by the National Police. From now on, these funds will work for the economy and reconstruction of Ukraine. Only vehicles seized by law enforcement officers are worth UAH 1.3 billion and they are currently employed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. “Drilling rigs, an airline, bank securities, aircraft engines, wagons and thousands of tons of fuel are not a complete list of assets seized by the court on the territory of Ukraine, the ultimate beneficiaries of which are citizens of the aggressor country,” added the National Police.

The Verkhovna Rada voted for legal and social guarantees established for Polish citizens staying on the territory of Ukraine. After the document is signed by the president, it will come into force. Polish citizens, in particular, will be able to stay on the territory of Ukraine for 18 months and enjoy the same rights and freedoms as citizens of Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war, a record number of couples have married in Kyiv. In total, from February 24 to July 23, 9120 marriages were registered in the capital, as stated by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. During the same period in 2021, only 1110 couples got married in Kyiv. This number might have increased due to simplification of the official procedure for registering marriages during the war. In addition, military personnel, police officers, and health care workers can register a marriage online, without personal presence.
