On the Donetsk front, the aggressors, with the support of artillery, are trying to block Lysychansk and take control of the section of the Lysychansk-Bakhmut road.

The occupiers fired from civil and military infrastructures in the areas of Lysychansk, Verkhnokamianka and Siversk and conducted an air strike near the ​​Lysychansk Oil Refinery.

Sabotage and reconnaissance groups were active in the area of the settlement of Verkhnokamianka to support the offensive.

The occupiers tried to improve the tactical situation in the area of ​​Spirne by conducting offensive actions, but were unsuccessful and withdrew. The Ukrainian soldiers neutralised the invaders' sabotage and reconnaissance groups near Berestove.

The General Staff also notes that some units of the Russian Armed Forces which were withdrawn from Ukraine to regain combat capability are not able to replenish their units in time, due to the reluctance of personnel to take part in the war against Ukraine.

Personnel who refuse to take part in the war are fired, and there are attempts to prosecute such people.
