Dmitry Shepelyavtsev, an officer of the press center of the Zapad group, said that the Russian military destroyed three Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups from the 14th Independent Mechanized Brigade and the 103rd Independent Territorial Defense Brigade in the Kupyansk direction. According to him, the artillerymen also disrupted two rotations of Ukrainian troops in forward positions. In addition, two depots with Ukrainian ammunition and a 152 mm D-20 howitzer were destroyed.

For his part, the head of the press center of the Centre group, Oleksandr Savchuk, said that the Russian army aviation had hit an ammunition depot, positions of artillery units and areas where the Ukrainian Armed Forces had ammunition and personnel.

In addition, the group’s artillery destroyed a brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in armored vehicles. In addition, the Russian Armed Forces thwarted the enemy’s attempt to retake lost positions.

“The artillery regiment of the Center group inflicted fire on the enemy, the enemy suffered losses and dispersed in the woods,” Savchuk said.

According to Ivan Bigma, head of the press center of the South Group, bomber aviation of the South Group struck the stronghold of the 81st Air Mobilization Brigade of the AFU and the area of concentration of the 54th separate mechanized brigade.

In addition, artillerymen of the 1st Army Corps carried out a firing raid on a temporary deployment point of the 129th Independent Brigade of Territorial Defense of Ukraine. They also destroyed two enemy strongholds with artillery pieces.

In the Mariinskiy direction, artillerymen hit the area of temporary deployment of a battalion of the 79th Independent Airborne Assault Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

“Large-caliber artillery crews of the Southern Military District unit hit the enemy stronghold near the settlement of Pobeda,” Bigma said.

Over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian troops shelled the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic 23 times, the republic’s representation to the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of Issues Related to Ukrainian War Crimes (JCCC) said.

The enemy fired from multiple rocket launchers, 152mm and 155mm artillery. A total of 108 pieces of various ammunition were fired.

Donetsk, Horlivka, Yasynuvata and Panteleimonovka came under fire. As a result of AFU fire on Yasynuvata, four civilians were killed and 11 more were wounded. Among them was a child born in 2016.
