What happened in Ukraine today:

Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 18.00: 

The enemy is attempting to stand ground in the temporarily occupied territories, deter the actions of the Armed forces of Ukraine in some directions and launch the offensive towards Bakhmut and Avdiivka.

Over ten settlements, Strilecha, Terny, Kharkiv oblast, Pavlivka and Novsilka, Donetsk oblast, Pravdyne and Bilohirka, Kherson oblast, were attacked.

The situation did not significantly change towards Volyn and Polissia. Planned rotation of armed forces of belarus protecting the state border is underway. The territory of Ukraine is exposed to the threat of missile and air strikes, launch of attack “Shahed-136” UAVs from the territory of belarus.
