What happened in Ukraine today:

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

The russian federation launched 16 missile strikes, including on the civilian infrastructure of the city of Khmelnytskyi and a settlement Ukrainsk, Donetsk oblast. As a result, there is damage to residential buildings and victims among the civilian population. In addition, the enemy carried out 4 air strikes and over 30x attacks from MLRS.

Ukraine is still under the threat of further strikes by the russian federation.

The enemy does not give up the invasion plans, despite significant losses. Key efforts are focused on conducting offensive operations towards Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Shakhtarsk.
