It has been the 198th day of Ukraine’s resistance to the russian military invasion.

Ukraine briefly

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

The enemy continues to focus its efforts on establishing full control over the territory of Donetsk oblast, holding temporarily occupied areas of Kherson, parts of Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia and Mykolaiv oblasts. Intensive aerial reconnaissance is conducted using UAVs. There are attempts to improve the tactical position and logistical support of enemy troops.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not changed significantly. In the armed forces of the republic of belarus, command and staff exercises continue.

In other directions, the enemy is shelling military and civilian infrastructure from tanks, combat vehicles, barrel and rocket artillery, hitting the following settlements:

towards the South Buh, the enemy fired from barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line.

In addition, the enemy actively conducted aerial reconnaissance with UAVs making more than 60 flights.

Due to significant losses and unwillingness to fight, the moral and psychological situation in the occupation units is significantly deteriorating and the number of deserters is growing. On the temporarily occupied territory of Kherson oblast, near the settlement of Babenkivka Druha, the enemy was forced to use helicopters and weapons to search for fugitives and return them to combat positions. In addition, through Kalanchak, in the direction of the temporarily occupied Crimea, there was an intensive movement of russian soldiers without weapons travelling by buses.

Units of the Defense Forces hold their positions and do not allow the enemy to move deep into the territory of Ukraine. Our soldiers successfully repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Avdiivka, Bezimenne, Kamianka, Konstantynivka, Mykolaivka Druha, Peremoha, Prudianka, Ruski Tyshky, and Virnopillya, Zaitseve.

To support the actions of ground groups, aviation of the Defense Forces carried out more than 10 strikes, during which military, air defense equipment and a significant amount of manpower in the strongholds in Donetsk and South Buh directions were destroyed.

Air defense units in different directions destroyed at least 2 enemy UAVs.

Rocket troops and artillery of ground troops continue to destroy manpower and military equipment, counter-battery warfare, violation of the enemy’s control and logistics system. 3 enemy control points, a pontoon crossing, 28 buildups of manpower and military equipment were hit by fire. Ammunition depots and enemy artillery firing positions came under attack. The results are being clarified.

Head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, called for an immediate cessation of shelling in the area of the occupied Zaporizhzhia NPP and creation of a “safety zone” around it. “I strongly urge an immediate cessation of all shelling in the area. Only this guarantees safety of service personnel and will allow restoration of the power supply to Enerhodar and the power plant for a long time,” Grossi said.

The Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic reports that the EU Council approved the proposal of the European Commission to provide Ukraine with the second tranche of macroeconomic assistance in the amount of EUR 5 billion. In total, the macroeconomic support program for Ukraine is 9 billion euros.

The European Commission, the World Bank and the Cabinet of Ministers, in cooperation with partners, estimated the current cost of reconstruction and restoration of Ukraine at $349 billion. This is stated in a message on the website of the European Commission. Russian terrorist forces have caused high losses to the residential sector, transport, trade and industry. There were significant damages and losses in Chernihiv, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Kyiv and Zaporizhzhia oblasts. The scope of damage is expected to increase in the coming months as the war continues.

In the war with Ukraine, russia attracted 80% of its ground forces. This was announced by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. He called for even greater support for Ukraine and for its readiness to “continue to provide Ukraine with what it needs immediately.” The NATO Secretary General stressed that allies must be well prepared in the long run and therefore NATO is in contact with the defense industrial complexes of member states.
