It has been the 847th day of the Ukrainian resistance to the russian military aggression. 

What happened in Ukraine today:

Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 6pm:   

On 19 June, the enemy increased the pace of offensive and assault operations, looking for ways to penetrate Ukrainian defences and try to dislodge Ukrainian units from the occupied lines. Ukrainian defenders are giving a worthy rebuff to the occupiers, destroying personnel and equipment.

The number of combat clashes along the entire front line has increased to 95. 

Towards Kharkiv, the invaders attacked four times during the day without success in the vicinity of Vovchansk and Lyptsi. In the afternoon, russian terrorists launched an insidious attack with four KABs on the civilian infrastructure of Kharkiv and its suburbs.  

Towards Kupiansk, Ukrainian defenders repelled 10 assaults by the occupying forces near Synkivka, Novoselivka and Stelmakhivka. Currently, two more clashes are ongoing there. The occupying forces struck Novoosynove with four guided aerial bombs, the settlements of Kivsharivka with two bombs, and the village of Prystin with one.

Towards Lyman, the enemy also attacked 10 times in the vicinity of Terny, Makiivka and Hrekivka. One battle is still ongoing. Enemy aircraft struck the village of Hryhorivka with two KABs. According to preliminary information, the enemy’s losses in this direction amounted to 88 occupiers, two armoured personnel carriers, 75 UAVs and two cars. 

Towards Siversk, near Verkhnokamianske and Rozdolivka, the aggressor stormed the positions of the Defense Forces six times. Ukrainian soldiers repelled two attacks, and four more are ongoing. The situation is tense. 

Towards Kramatorsk, the number of enemy attacks increased to 17.  The enemy is looking for ways to penetrate Ukrainian defences in the vicinity of Ivanivske, Nove, Kalynivka, Pivnichne, Andriivka and Bohdanivka.  The defence forces are repelling the occupiers, 13 assaults have been repelled, and four more are ongoing. According to preliminary information, the enemy’s losses in this area amounted to 128 occupiers, eight armoured personnel carriers and five cars.

The military of the 70th Motorized Rifle Regiment of the 42nd Motorized Rifle Division (military unit 71718) was probably involved in the war crime: Yuriy Abayev, Dmitry Nagorny, Temirlan Abutalimov, Zaur Bekov and Yusup Imagazaliyev. These soldiers may also be involved in the killing of several more Ukrainian prisoners of war later in May 2024.
