Russian invaders try to reach the administrative borders of Luhansk, Donetsk, and Kherson regions.

“According to the operational information as of 12:00, Russian invaders continue to conduct full-scale armed aggression against our state. In particular, the enemy intends to encircle the Joint Forces and reach the administrative borders of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. In order to restrain the actions of our troops, the enemy will continue to hold certain boundaries in the temporarily occupied territories of Kyiv and Chernihiv regions, probably in the areas near the state border of Ukraine (with the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation, respectively),” the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine posted on Facebook.

It is noted that there are no signs of formation of offensive groups by the enemy in Volyn direction. Intensified operational and combat training measures are being carried out in the units of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus. The enemy builds up the air defense system in the border areas with Ukraine.

In Polissia direction, the enemy continues to redeploy some units to the territory of the Republic of Belarus. In order to slow down the advance of Ukrainian units, the occupiers mine abandoned positions, routes, elements of transport infrastructure and equipment that cannot be evacuated.
