Russian artillery and even tank fire struck several towns near Kramatorsk, Donetsk Oblast, with air strikes hitting Ukrainian positions near Hryhoriivka and Ivano-Dariivka, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook post on Aug. 8.

An attempted Russian tactical advance near Verkhnyokamyanske was halted and repulsed by Ukrainian forces.

Avdiyivka and nearby towns were hit by Russian air strikes and artillery fire.

Another three Russian advances – towards Avdiyivka, Nevelske, and Pisky – were similarly unsuccessful.

Enemy artillery and air force delivered further strikes at least 13 settlements near Zaporizhzhya and Novopavlivkse, Mykolayiv Oblast.
