In the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson oblast, the occupiers are intensifying filtration measures. Russian FSB officers arrived in Novotroitske to identify local residents having a pro-Ukrainian stance.

To replenish their manpower losses, the occupiers are also conducting propaganda and agitation work among young people on top of mobilization.

According to Enerhodar mayor Dmytro Orlov, the situation in the temporarily occupied Enerhodar is critical. The city virtually has no heating supply since the occupiers do not allow starting up the energy block of Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. There is also no hot water supply.
