❗️ The main points from the report:

➡️ During the day, the enemy carried out 10 air strikes and fired 19 times from multiple launch rocket systems.

➡️ Over the last day, 21 combat engagements took place.

➡️ In the Mariinka sector, Ukrainian defense forces continue to hold back the Russian offensive near the town of Mariinka.

➡️ At the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson directions, the enemy is focusing its main efforts on preventing further advance of our troops. At the same time, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to conduct offensive operations in the Melitopol and Berdiansk directions, consolidate their positions, inflict artillery fire on the identified enemy targets, and carry out counter-battery measures.

➡️ Against the backdrop of successful combat operations of the Ukrainian Defense Forces and due to significant losses of the invaders in manpower, the number of refusals to participate in combat operations has increased in the units of the Russian occupation forces. Thus, near the village of Rozivka, Zaporizhzhia region, about 60 Russian servicemen from the 247th Air Assault Regiment of the 7th Air Assault Division of the Russian Armed Forces refused to perform combat missions near the village of Staromayorske, Donetsk region. At the same time, the occupiers partially disabled their own vehicles and armored vehicles.

🔥 The aviation of the defense forces carried out 3 strikes on the areas of concentration of enemy personnel over the day, and units of missile forces and artillery during the day hit 8 artillery pieces at firing positions, 2 electronic warfare stations, an ammunition depot, and an enemy fuel and lubricant depot.
