From August 10, humanitarian aid will stop to be issued in the Kurakhove community of the Pokrovsk Raion. According to the mayor Roman Padun, this is due to the threat of missile strikes. “Due to the high probability of enemy rocket attacks on the city center and congestion of people, the issuance of humanitarian aid will be suspended on August 10.

Mariupol residents are still without electricity at home. Despite the loud statements of the invaders that the city is illuminated, local residents write that the occupiers supply electric power to their institutions, but not to residential buildings.

In occupied Mariupol, at 12:00, a powerful explosion was heard in the Tsentralnyi district near the ECO market. This was reported on the Telegram channel of the Mariupol City Council, but they can neither refute nor confirm the information about the activity of the Mariupol resistance group.

In Mariupol, the invaders planted mines even on children’s playgrounds. Now residents are finding them.

Luhansk Oblast

The russian occupiers decided not to restore Popasna, as they had promised the people who remained in the city the day before. Starting in February, the russians wiped out Popasna, and subsequently entered the city. Loud promises had been made for several months, until the decision was made to leave everything as it is – that is, not to rebuild the destroyed city at all. This was announced by Serhii Haidai, the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration. 

Over the past day, the russian forces carried out nine sorties of assault and army aviation aircraft. The Ukrainian military neutralized several reconnaissance groups of the russian army, and the latter’s assault operations in three directions at once also failed – the Ukrainian army forced the invaders to retreat.

Soldiers of the International Company of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yevhen Olefirenko and Stanislav Koval, took some books out of Lysychansk on the eve of the capture of the city by the russians. The rescued books were transferred to the Kyiv Central Library named after T.G. Shevchenko for children. These fighters wanted to hand them over together, but 33-year-old Yevhen was killed a few days after the capture of Lysychansk in the battle near Bakhmut. On one of the saved books (the comic book “Confrontation: Red Terror”) the fighters left their wishes for future readers. On behalf of Yevhen, the book was signed by his family

Today, the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the Kakhovka bridge. After the strikes, this bridge over the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant is not suitable for use. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine keep the Kakhovka Bridge under fire control.

The occupation authorities of the Kherson Oblast announced the introduction of a permit system for the transportation of agricultural produce of the oblast. Yuriy Sobolevskyi, First Deputy Chairman of the Kherson Oblast Council, explained on his Telegram channel that this measure would put maximum pressure on farmers and force them to re-register their business under the jurisdiction of russia, and also would create another tool of corrupt influence on the agrarians of the oblast. https://t.me/SobolevskyiYurii/180

In addition, the occupation authorities are trying to quickly passportize the population of the temporarily occupied Kherson Oblast. In the temporarily occupied territories, “passports” are issued by the so-called “authorities” according to a simplified procedure. Therefore, such a “passport” does not give Ukrainians the same legal rights as russians have.

The Prosecutor General’s announced suspicion of aiding the aggressor state to an employee of Khersonoblenergo (oblast power distribution company) and the former head of the Kherson branch of Ukrposhta.

Mykolaiv Oblast

The head of the Kirovograd Regional Military Administration, Andrii Raykovych, gave official information about the explosions, which are so actively reported by Telegram channels. He emphasized that there was no need to worry. Explosive objects were being destroyed at the landfill, not far from the regional center. This work is planned for another 5-7 days. Therefore, the official asked all citizens to remain calm and not to panic.

In Kropyvnytskyi, the “Angel of Life” charitable foundation is starting a project for children who were forced to leave their homes – “Dream of School”. The organizers want to collect school supplies for the new school year for the little migrants.

The executive committee of the Kropyvnytskyi city council allowed a local company, the name of which has not been disclosed, to place a quickly assembled shelter in the center of the city. “Each such protective object significantly increases the chances of survival for the city’s residents and forced migrants, because it effectively protects against the blast wave and missile fragments during air attacks. It is important that the manufacturer of such shelters is a regional enterprise, so the structural elements will be delivered to Kropyvnytskyi promptly,” said Oleg Kolyuka, secretary of the Kropyvnytskyi City Council.

The coordinator of the All-Ukrainian Initiative “Active Community” provided consultations to displaced persons from Donetsk and Kharkiv oblasts on obtaining documents on the status of an internally displaced person, as well as information on the available resources of employers in the regional center and surrounding communities.

Activist and volunteer Serhiy Sivakivskyi from Kozyatyn once again organized a fundraiser to help the Ukrainian military. This time they are collecting funds for the repair of a car that came under fire.

Kozyatyn residents are actively involved in collecting funds for the needs of the Ukrainian military. It is even better that children join the gathering.

Almost everyone loves watermelon, but not everyone dares to grow melon crops in their garden, believing that watermelons do not grow in Podillya. Anatoliy Ogorodniychuk, who has a small melon field, proved this belief wrong.

The coordinator of the All-Ukrainian Initiative “Active Community” of the city of Khmilnyk and Khmilnyk raion, speaking with internally displaced persons, told them that from now on they could receive payments even if they lost their passports, and some of the displaced persons could receive up to 20 thousand hryvnias in monetary support.


Western Oblasts

Lviv Oblast

There were no air alarms in the region.

Another 306 people arrived in Lviv by two evacuation trains. 761 people were sent from Lviv Oblast to Przemyśl by four trains. 17 thousand 947 people left through checkpoints in Lviv oblast. Instead, 17,983 Ukrainians returned.

Limited liability company “AGK Ukraine”, which has been actively working in Luhansk oblast for 20 years, moved to Chervonohrad raion. The enterprise specializes in the production of primary pharmaceutical packaging (production of plastic packaging for medicinal products). Soon, the business from Luhansk oblast plans to work at full capacity again.

The Lviv National Philharmonic Society collected 50,000 hryvnias for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This amount was collected thanks to the holding of the 41st International Festival of Musical Art “Virtuosos”, the 6th International Music Marathon in memory of Vasyl Slipak and the musical and literary event “Between the Sirens”.

The situation is calm. A plan for enhanced defense of the Drohobych raion was discussed. Specialists work every day to make the country stronger. Therefore, the army is being strengthened and becoming even more combat-ready, and the Drohobych raion is always ready to repel the enemy. 

The special commission under the Drohobych raion military administration will continue to inspect the hotels of Truskavets and Skhidnytsia regarding the registration of internally displaced men who temporarily live in the raion. This happens because the hoteliers do not conscientiously fulfill their duty to send lists and notices about the men who have settled in hotels and about the need to be registered.

In the community, educational institutions are inspected for the presence of shelters. The special commission should make its conclusions at the end of this month regarding the recommended educational institutions and their safety for children during the educational process.

The staff of the Derman educational complex, employees of the library, cultural center, local entrepreneurs and caring villagers held a charity fair to buy a car for Ukrainian defenders. They auctioned 57,100 hryvnias, which have already been handed over to volunteers. However, the collection of funds was continued, because there were still many willing to help financially. 11-year-old Victoria Greben also joined the fundraising. She brought 611 hryvnias from her piggy bank. The girl’s brother died in the war. So she wanted to help his congeners.
