Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Air Force carried out nine strikes at enemy staging areas and anti-air batteries. Enemy casualty reports are still pending.

Ukrainian rocket artillery continued to attack Russian command centers and armor concentrations. In particular, Russian artillery batteries, electronic warfare systems, and mobile radar complexes were hit.
