Near Dolgenkoe, the occupiers launched airstrikes using army ground attack aircraft.

In the Slobozhanske area, the Russian invasion force continues to prepare for an attack by replenishing supplies, weapons and equipment on the Russian territory. They continue to fire using artillery and multiple launch rocket systems in order to reduce the offensive potential of the Ukrainian troops.

On the Kharkiv axis in general, the invaders are not carrying out active operations. The main efforts are focused on deterring the actions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces, Ukraine’s General Staff said.
