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

The russian federation continues its full-scale armed aggression against Ukraine. The invaders’ main efforts are focused on the offensive operations against Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Shakhtarsk. The number of enemy personnel is increasing.

On February 22, the enemy launched 9 missile strikes, 4 of them on the city of Kharkiv, and 10 air strikes. The invaders launched more than 20 MLRS attacks. There remains a threat of missile strikes across Ukraine.

Towards Volyn, Polissia, Siversk, and Sloboda, there are no significant changes. The enemy continues to maintain military presence near the state border of Ukraine. However, no signs of enemy offensive groups formed were found. 

The enemy fired mortars and artillery at the settlements of Mykhalchyna Sloboda (Chernihiv oblast), Koreniok, Boyaro-Lezhachi, Ryzhivka, and Basivka (Sumy oblast), as well as 15 settlements in Kharkiv oblast. Among them are Tymofiivka, Starytsia, Vovchansk, Budarky, Ambarne, and Bolohivka.

The enemy conducted several unsuccessful offensives towards Kupiansk and Lyman. The invaders also attempted to infiltrate a sabotage and reconnaissance group near Fyholivka. The enemy fired artillery at Kamianka, Hrianikivka, Kotliarivka, Berestove (Kharkiv oblast), Nevske, Kreminna, Kuzmyne, Dibrova, Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast), Ivanivka, and Yampolivka (Donetsk oblast). 

Towards Bakhmut, the enemy continues to attack the positions of Ukrainian troops near the settlements of Orikhovo-Vasylivka, Dubovo-Vasylivka, Berkhivka, Yahidne, and Bakhmut.
