Donbas Area – Southeast

Russians continued their attempts both to assault Avdiivka from the front, and to surround it from the flanks. As a consequence, heavy fighting continued southwest of Avdiivka in Pisky, north of Avdiivka between Krasnohorivka and Kamyanka, and on the southern outskirts of Avdiivka itself. Russians were unable to achieve a major advance during the reported period.

Russians continued to attack Mar’inka, also without major territorial changes.


Donbas Area – South and Zaporizhzhia Area

Ukrainians advanced from Hulyaipole towards Polohy, liberating village Kostyantynivka.


Black Sea Area

Russians unsuccessfully attacked towards villages Bilohirka, Lozove and Andriivka.

Opinions continued to be voiced regarding a possible Russian offensive in this area due to the large concentration of Russian forces that had been recently sent there.


Kharkiv Area

Russians continued their unsuccessful attempts to advance on village Dementiivka.
