The Ukrainian military said that fighting continues in the Slobozhansky area. The movement of a column of equipment with fuel and ammunition was spotted moving in the direction of the settlement of Shypuvate.

In the Kharkiv area, the main efforts of the invaders are focused on retaining control of occupied territory. Intense enemy fire continues on Ukrainian army units near the settlements of Hlyboke, Ruski Tyshky, Staryi Saltiv and Cherkaski Tyshky.

"In the Slovyansk area, in order to reduce the combat potential of our troops, the enemy carried out artillery shelling of the settlements of Hrushuvakha, Tetyanivka and Dibrivne," the General Staff said.

The enemy also carried out assault operations in the direction of the settlement of Bohorodychne, but failed. In addition, the invaders led an unsuccessful offensive in the direction of the village of Virnopillia, but suffered casualties.

In the Donetsk area, the enemy is firing at the positions of Ukrainian troops along the entire contact line with mortars, artillery and rockets, as well as using ground attack aircraft.

In the Lyman area, near the settlement of the Stary Karavan, the invaders are trying to take control of the left bank of the Siversky Donets River.
