The Russian Federation continues to ignore the laws and customs of war, shelling not only military but also civilian targets of our state. Over the past 24 hours, not only Kherson, where a child was wounded on November 19, was under enemy artillery strikes, but also other settlements in the Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkov, Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye and Nikolaev regions.
In addition, over the past 24 hours, the invaders launched a new air strike on Ukraine, using attack UAVs of the Shahed-136/131 type. Air defense forces destroyed 15 out of 20 enemy targets.
In response, Defense Forces aviation carried out 2 strikes on areas where enemy personnel were concentrated, and units of the missile forces hit 2 areas where personnel, weapons and military equipment were concentrated, as well as 3 enemy ammunition depots.
These and other units of the Defense Forces sent more than 600 invaders to hell per day (the total number of enemy casualties exceeded 319 thousand people) and destroyed 4 tanks, 4 artillery systems and 9 enemy attack UAVs.
Over the past 24 hours, 46 military clashes took place in the hottest areas of confrontation.
In particular in the Kupyansky direction The enemy carried out assault operations in the Sinkovka areas, east of Petropavlovka and Ivanovka, Kharkov region, where the defense forces repelled 7 attacks.
on Bakhmut direction The enemy stormed the Kleshchievka and Andreevka areas of the Donetsk region, where our defenders repulsed 11 attacks. At the same time, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue assault operations south of Bakhmut.
on Avdeevsky direction The occupiers are not giving up their attempts to encircle Avdiivka. However, the enemy’s offensive actions east of Novokalinovoe, Novobakhmutovka, Severny and Avdeevka were unsuccessful; the defense forces repelled 12 attacks.
on Maryinsky direction The enemy conducted unsuccessful assault operations in the Krasnohorivka, Marinka and Pobeda areas of the Donetsk region, where Ukrainian soldiers repelled 16 attacks.
on Miner’s direction The invaders carried out assault operations near Staromayorsky, Donetsk region, but were unsuccessful.
on Zaporozhye direction the enemy did not conduct offensive (assault) actions.
At the same time, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to conduct an offensive operation in the Melitopol direction, inflicting losses on the occupation forces in manpower and equipment, and exhausting the enemy along the entire front line. Also, the Defense Forces continue to hold occupied positions on the left bank of the Dnieper, where they conduct counter-battery combat and inflict fiery defeat on the enemy’s rear.
Let us remind you that last week the General Staff confirmed the capture of the bridgehead on the left bank of Kherson and named its main task.
