Ukraine briefly:

It has been the 148th day  of the Ukrainian people’s heroic resistance to the russian invasion. 

Here is operational information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 6pm:

Towards Volyn and Polissya, no significant changes have occured. Since the beginning of this month, citizens of the republic of belarus have been urged to sign contracts with russian private military companies. Military commissariats of the armed forces of belarus are actively engaged in this campaign. 

Towards Siversk, the enemy continues to shell the positions of our troops in Sumy oblast and conduct aerial reconnaissance using UAVs.

Towards Kharkiv, the enemy struck Rtyshchivka  and Verkhniy Saltov. There was artillery shelling in the areas of Cherkaski Tyshky, Chuhuiv, Kharkiv, Korobochkyne, Malynivka,Prudianka,  Pytomnyk, Ruska Lozova, Rubizhne, Udy, and Zalyman.

By conducting assault actions, the enemy unsuccessfully tried to move towards Velyki Prokhody – Pytomnyk. There was also aerial reconnaissance conducted by using an unmanned aerial vehicle near Dementiivka, Rubizhne, Slatyne, and Zamulivka.

Towards Sloviansk, the enemy carried out artillery shelling in the areas of Dolyna, Bohorodychne, Husarivka, Velyka Komyshuvakha, Nortsivka, Virnopillia. There was aerial reconnaissance conducted near Dmytrivka and Virnopillia.

Towards Kramatorsk, the enemy carried out airstrikes on Serebrianka and Spirne. Artillery shelling was reported to occur near  Hryhorivka, Ivano-Darivka and Siversk. An enemy UAV of the operational-tactical level operated near Rozdolivka and Hryhorivka.

Ukrainian soldiers repelled hostile assault actions towards the Lysychansk refinery – Ivano-Darivka. The enemy suffered losses and withdrew.

Towards Bakhmut, the enemy carried out airstrikes in the areas of Vershyna, Bilohorivka, Kostiantynivka and Berestove. Artillery shelling was recorded near Bakhmut, Berestove, Vesele, Vyimka, Vershyna, Novoluhanske, Zaitseve, Soledar, Rozdolivka and Kurdiumivka.

Weak assaults of the occupiers towards Klynove – Vershtyna, Myronivka – the Vuhlehirsk TPP failed again.

Towards Avdiivka, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia, the enemy carried out airstrikes at Krasnohorivka, Kamianka, Solodke and Novoandriivka to restrain actions of our troops. Artillery shelling was reported in the areas of Avdiivka, Bilohiria, Huliaipilske, Krasnohorivka, Mykilske, Novopil, Novoselivka Druha, Pisky, Stepnohirsk, Vuhledar, Zaliznychne,  Zolota Nyva. To correct artillery fire, unmanned aerial vehicles of the operational-tactical level were used near Bilohiria, Mala Tokmachka and Shcherbakv.

Towards South Buh, artillery shelling was recorded in the areas of Bila Krynytsia, DobreKniazivka, Kotliareve, Luch, Nova Zoria, Olhyne, Pervomaiske, Potemkyne, Shyroke, Ternivka.  The invaders unsuccessfully tried to conduct a counterattack towardss Sukhyi Stavok – Andriivka.

In the Black Sea and Azov seas, the enemy’s ships focus on blocking civilian navigation in the northwestern part of the Black Sea. Outside the bases are two carriers of cruise missiles. 

Forcibly mobilized personnel, brought from the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions to replenish the enemy’s losses have their personal documents seized. This indicates complete lawlessness of these people and, allegedly, should stop desertion. It will also not allow identification of these persons in case of death, which paves the way for various financial frauds in favor of the command staff of the armed forces of the russian federation.


President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy says that he is quite healthy and feels as good as ever. This is a response to another russian fake about Zelenskyy’s allegedly serious condition, which was posted today through conducting a hacker attack on the radio “Melodiia”.

The invaders dragged at least 14 units of heavy military equipment with ammunition, weapons and explosives to the engine room of the 1st power unit of the Zaporizhzhia NPP. This is stated in the message of Energoatom. Experts warn that the situation at the station is very dangerous and call on the international community to take all possible measures to liberate the Ukrainian NPP from the enemy.

 

By the end of 2022, Ukraine’s economy will shrink by a third, predicts the National Bank. If the Black Sea ports are unblocked, it will return to growth in 2023-2024.

Sergey Prytula, a Ukrainian public figure and volunteer, says that “people’s Bayraktars” will be delivered to Ukraine at the end of summer. Also, reports of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff, will specify that these are the “people’s” Bayraktars destroying enemy targets.
