On the Kramatorsk front, Russian forces shelled civilian infrastructure in the areas around Siversk and Hryhorivka.

Artillery-supported units of Russian troops attempted to storm the area of Novoluhanske but were unsuccessful and retreated.

Ukrainian troops decisively repelled a Russian attempt to advance towards Lozove [there are several villages with that name in different oblasts of Ukraine and the General Staff does not clarify which one this refers to, but it appears that this is the village of Lozove in Kherson Oblast, on the administrative border with Mykolaiv Oblast - ed.]. Russia is continuing to implement measures to replenish its losses.
