The four hundred and fifty-seventh day of the large-scale armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine is underway.

The enemy continues to concentrate his main efforts on the Kupyansky, Limansky, Bakhmutsky, Avdeevsky and Maryinsky directions. In total, there were 18 clashes in the indicated sectors of the front, the General Staff reported.

The Russian aggressor cynically continues to use terror tactics. In total, the enemy launched 18 missile attacks per day on the settlements of the Kiev and Dnepropetrovsk regions using 10 Kh-101 / Kh-555 air-launched cruise missiles (destroyed by our defenders) and, twice a day, used 8 S-300 / S anti-aircraft guided missiles -400 in the city of Dnipro.

In addition, the enemy launched 60 air strikes, in particular, used Iranian Shahed-type attack drones on the cities of Merefa and Izyum in the Kharkiv region, and also used guided aerial bombs on the city of Avdiivka and the village of New York.

At the same time, he made about 34 shelling from multiple launch rocket systems at the positions of our troops and settlements. Unfortunately, there are dead and wounded among the civilian population.

Aviation of the Defense Forces in response to attacks by the enemy inflicted 8 strikes per day on the areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment of the enemy.
Missile troops and artillery units hit 3 command posts, 2 areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, 1 ammunition train, 2 artillery units in firing positions, 1 air defense system and 1 more important enemy target.

According to the General Staff, several dozen Russian servicemen arrived in the temporarily occupied Novopetrikovka, Donetsk region, to carry out so-called “counter-sabotage activities.”

Invaders search private houses, seize mobile devices, illegally seize vehicles of local residents. In general, they simply rob citizens.

As FACTS reported, the head of Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, said that he was withdrawing his subordinates from Bakhmut. According to him, during the battles for Bakhmut, a private group of mercenaries lost 10,000 convict recruits and 10,000 regular professional fighters.
