While attempting to hold their lines in southern Ukraine, Russian forces launched minor probing attacks in Donbas, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook post on Sep. 1.

Russian attempts to advance near Vodyane and Zaytseve, Donetsk Oblast, were halted.

Enemy artillery shelled Kramatorsk, Bakhmut, Avdiyivka, and their surrounding areas, hitting a total of 18 settlements. Vremivka, Neskuchne, and Oleksandropil near Avdiivka were targeted with air strikes.

In Kherson Oblast, Russian forces fired at a large number of villages along the front line, damaging military and civilian infrastructure.
