The enemy is shelling our positions along the contact line, is trying to take measures to regroup troops in separate directions, conducts aerial reconnaissance. There remains the threat of air and missile strikes throughout the territory of Ukraine.

These are, in particular, Kryvyi Rih, Nikopol, Bilohirka, Maryinka, Olhivske, Oskil, Mykolayiv, Ochakiv, Lyubomirivka, Hulyaipole and Myrne.

During the current day, the enemy carried out 5 missile strikes, 5 air strikes and carried out 23 on military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine.

The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly.

In other directions, the enemy fired at the infrastructure from tanks, mortars and artillery of various calibers:

The remaining personnel are distributed among the units of the mobilization reserve. Due to the large number of wounded in the settlement of Novoayidar, civilian medical facilities, including a children’s hospital, are urgently being repurposed as military hospitals.

In general, the military-political leaders of the russian federation decided to replenish the reserve for the war in Ukraine at the expense of penal institutions, state enterprises and institutions, lifting restrictions on conscription for large families and the forced creation of regional battalions formed on a national basis.

Defense forces of Ukraine successfully repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Vesela Dolyna, Mayorsk and Zayitseve settlements.

The first 13 patients from Izium, who could not receive the necessary medical care in this city freed from the occupiers, were taken to Kramatorsk medical institutions. Oleksiy Yakovlenko, the general director of “City Hospital N3” of the Kramatorsk City Council, announced this on Facebook. “Together with military medics, I visited liberated Izium,” he writes. “The purpose of the visit is to help the Central District Hospital of Izium in providing high-quality medical care to residents in conditions where there is currently no communication, electricity, water, and other good of civilization in the city.

I was amazed by what I saw. First of all, by ruins. As well as communication with heroes-doctors and nurses who have been providing assistance to the population of Izium and the villages of the raion for almost 6 months under the occupation, shelling, as well as the complete absence of an instrumental base (analyses, X-ray, CT, ultrasound), medicines.

The forces of military medics, MOAS, and the “Life Saving Center” Charitable Foundation found a solution: the first residents of Izium were taken to Kramatorsk City Hospital No. 3 in the traumatology and neurological department. There are still several issues – lack of medicines, food, fuel and many other things, but there is a principled position of the leadership of Kramatorsk: to extend a helping hand to the residents of Izium.”
