It has been the 156th day of Ukraine’s heroic resistance to the russian military invasion.

Ukraine briefly:

Here is operational information regarding the russian invasion as of 6pm.

In the temporarily occupied territory of Donetsk oblast, in former correctional colony No. 120 in Olenivka, which is now used as a place of detention for Ukrainian prisoners of war, a powerful explosion occurred. As a result, the premises where the  Ukrainian prisoners were staying were destroyed. Many of them were killed and wounded – the number is being specified.

The explosions took place on the territory of the industrial zone, in the newly built room, which was to be specially equipped to hold prisoners withdrawn from Azovstal. 

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine emphasizes that the explosions that led to the death of Ukrainian defenders are a deliberate provocation and an indisputable act of terrorism by the occupier. According to the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, it was carried out by mercenaries from the private military company “Wagner” (Liga). The main purpose of the terrorist attack is to hide the facts of total embezzlement of funds allocated for maintenance of Ukrainian prisoners of war.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not significantly changed. There were no signs of forming offensive groups of the rf armed forces and those of the republic of belarus.

Towards Siversk, the enemy continued to strike at infrastructure facilities with barreled and rocket artillery in the border areas of Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts. The enemy also conducted aerial reconnaissance with UAVs near the village of Hremiach, Chernihiv oblast.

Towards Kharkiv, the enemy shelled with barreled and rocket artillery in the areas of  Bazaliivka, Dementiivka, Ivanivka, Kharkiv,  Korobochkine, Lisne, Maiak, Peremoha, Rubizhne, Slatyne, Sosnivka, Svitlychne, Udy, Zamulivka, and others. There was an airstrike launched near Staryi Saltiv.

Towards Sloviansk, the enemy used barreled, rocket artillery and tanks near Bohorodychne, Dolyna, Hrushuvakha, Kurulka, Sulyhivka and Virnoopillia. Enemy aircraft operated near Husarivka. In the area of Shchurivka, our soldiers found and neutralized an enemy reconnaissance group.

Towards Kramatorsk, the enemy shelled Hryhorivka, Ivano-Dariivka, Kryva Luka, Serebrianka, Siversk,  Spirne, Vyimka and Zvanivka. The airstrike was recorded near Serebrianka and Spirne. Not far from Verkhniokamenske, fire was inflicted on the detected reconnaissance group of the invaders. The enemy withdrew.

Towards Bakhmut, the enemy shelled military and civilian infrastructure with artillery and tanks in the areas of Bakhmut,  Kodema, Shumy, Soledar, Travneve, Vershyna, Vesela Dolyna, Zaitseve,  and other settlements. He launched airstrikes near Pokrovsky, Novoluhanskoye, Soledar and Vesela Dolyna.

The invaders again tried to storm in the areas of Soledar, Vershyna and Semihiria. Their failed attempts resulted in losses and retreat.

Towards Avdiivka, the enemy shelled the settlements of Avdiivka, Krasnohorivka, Novokalynove, Pavlivka, Pisky, Shevchenko, Velyka Novoselka, Vesele, Vuhledar, Vodiane and others. All offensive and assault actions of the invaders in the areas of Avdiivka, Kamyanka, Krasnohorivka and Pisky were suppressed by our soldiers.

Towards Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia, the enemy did not conduct active offensive operations, continued systematic shelling of civilian infrastructure near Novopol, Olhivske, Vremivka and a number of other settlements.

Towards the South Buh, the main efforts of the enemy are focused on preventing the advance of our troops. The enemy shelled civilian and military infrastructure in the areas of Ivanivka, Tokareve, Karyerne, Osokorivka, Blahodatne, Kobzartsi and more than thirty other settlements.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy introduced the new commander of the Special Operation Forces, Brigadier General Viktor Khorenko, to the personnel. “I am sure that under his leadership there will be many achievements and many victories. And we bring victory closer every day,” the president said.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, after the shelling of the colony in occupied Olenivka by Russian troops, called on the world to recognize russia as a terrorist state. “The russians committed another terrible war crime by shelling a correctional facility in the occupied Olenivka, where they were holding Ukrainian prisoners of war. I call on all partners to strongly condemn this brutal violation of international humanitarian law and recognize the russian federation as a terrorist state,” the Foreign Minister said.

The NBU has tightened requirements for currency exchange offices and prohibited them from informing about exchange rates outside bank cash desks. In fact, it is prohibited to put up a scoreboard with courses. The National Bank records that non-bank institutions that exchange currencies artificially increase the cash rate. However, according to the regulator, such an increase in the exchange rate looks groundless against the background of relative stabilization of supply and demand and can only indicate speculative approaches to exchange rate formation by non-bank institutions.
