The two-hundred-sixty fifth (265) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
Ukraine in brief:
The russian occupiers are trying to keep the temporarily captured territories, are concentrating their efforts on restraining the actions of the Defense Forces of Ukraine in certain areas, and are continuing to equip defensive lines on the left bank of the Dnipro.

The results of the Air Defense Forces of Ukraine and the consequences of enemy attacks on critical infrastructure facilities are currently being clarified. In addition, the occupiers do not stop shelling the positions of our troops and settlements along the contact line.
The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly. Belarus continues to support the armed aggression of russia against Ukraine, providing it with infrastructure, territory and airspace. The threat of the enemy launching missile and air strikes from the territory and airspace of belarus remains.
