Război în Ucraina. Update 29 August 2022

ISW

Ukrainian military officials announced the start of the Ukrainian counteroffensive in Kherson Oblast on August 29. Ukrainian officials reported that Ukrainian forces have broken through the first line of defenses in unspecified areas of Kherson Oblast and are seeking to take advantage of the disruption of Russian ground lines of communication caused by Ukrainian HIMARS strikes over many weeks.[1] Ukrainian officials did not confirm liberating any settlements, but some Russian milbloggers and unnamed sources speaking with Western outlets stated that Ukrainian forces liberated several settlements west and northwest of Kherson City, near the Ukrainian bridgehead over the Inhulets River, and south of the Kherson-Dnipropetrovsk Oblast border.[2] The Russian Defense Ministry (MoD), Russian proxies, and some Russian milbloggers denounced the Ukrainian announcement of the counteroffensive as “propaganda.”[3]

Many Russian milbloggers nevertheless reported a wide variety of Ukrainian attacks along the entire line of contact, and the information space will likely become confused for a time due to panic among Russian sources.[4] Russian outlets have also vaguely mentioned evacuations of civilians from Kherson Oblast, but then noted that occupation authorities in Kherson Oblast are calling on residents to seek shelter rather than flee.[5] ISW will report on the Ukrainian counteroffensive in a new section below.

Ukrainian Counteroffensives (Ukrainian efforts to liberate Russian-occupied territories)

Ukrainian military officials announced that Ukrainian forces began a counteroffensive operation in Kherson Oblast on August 29 after severely disrupting Russian ground lines of communication (GLOCs) for weeks. Southern Operational Command Spokesperson Nataliya Gumenyuk stated that Ukrainian forces “began counteroffensive actions in many directions” and have broken through the first line of defense in an unspecified area.[11] The Ukrainian operational group “Kakhovka” stated that Ukrainian forces have cut Russian GLOCs across the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast and called the situation a “brilliant chance to return [Ukrainian] territories.”[12] The “Kakhovka” group also reported that the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) 109th Regiment and Russian airborne troops have left their positions in an unspecified area of Kherson Oblast, and Ukrainian wires claimed that these elements withdrew from their positions around Kherson City.[13] The DNR 109th Regiment had previously published an appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin in late June identifying itself as a forcibly mobilized unit, complaining that it had not been rotated away from the front line for rest, and decrying poor conditions on the frontlines.[14] Ukrainian military officials also released a DNR document dated July 24 that ordered the redeployment of the 109th, 113th, and 125th DNR regiments to Arkhanhelske, Vysokopillya, Zolota Balka, and Davydiv Brid in northwestern Kherson Oblast.[15] “Kakhovka” also shared footage reportedly of a Russian serviceman seeking shelter on the ground amidst heavy artillery shelling while saying that Ukrainian forces have broken the first line of defense on August 29.[16] Ukrainian officials did not discuss the directionality of Ukrainian counteroffensives.

Ukrainian and Russian officials called for civilians to evacuate or seek shelter in western Kherson Oblast on August 28-29. Ukrainian Kherson Oblast officials called on civilians to leave Kherson Oblast to get out of the way of Ukrainian forces and directed those choosing to stay in Kherson Oblast to seek shelter away from Russian military equipment.[17] Occupation authorities of Nova Kakhkovka, where Ukrainian forces have frequently targeted Russian military infrastructure and GLOCS, called on civilians to seek shelter due to extensive Ukrainian strikes on August 28-29.[18] Russian sources reported that Nova Kakhova occupation authorities do not plan to issue evacuation orders.[19] Ukrainian Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov stated that Russian forces evacuated their military hospital in Melitopol on August 29, indicating further fear of intensified Ukrainian activity even in rear occupied areas.[20]

The Russian Defense Ministry (MoD) claimed on the evening of August 29 that the Ukrainian counteroffensive was a limited, failed effort, setting the tone for subsequent discussions of the counteroffensive in the Russian media space.[21] The Russian MoD claimed that Ukrainian forces suffered heavy personnel and equipment losses after trying and failing to advance in three unspecified directions in Kherson Oblast.[22] Deputy Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR) Interior Minister Vitaly Kiselyov claimed that the idea of a grand Ukrainian counteroffensive was propaganda and that Ukrainian forces only attempted a limited assault with two infantry battalions and one tank battalion, suffering heavy casualties in the attempt.[23] Russian milbloggers largely claimed that reports of a Ukrainian counteroffensive were overblown, fake, or likely to fail, claiming that Ukrainian forces have so far lacked the ability to break through Russian defensive lines in past counterattacks and remain unable to do so in new counterattacks.[24] These dismissive statements indicate that the Kremlin aims to maintain the façade of extensive Russian military successes in Ukraine.

Russian and Western sources claimed that Ukrainian forces liberated five settlements during the first day of the counteroffensive, but Ukrainian sources have not announced the liberation of any settlements at the time of this publication. An unnamed military official of an unspecified country told CNN that Ukrainian forces liberated Pravdyne (approximately 34km northwest of Kherson City), Novodmytrivka, and Tomyna Balka (both about 23km due west of Kherson City).[25] The official also stated that Ukrainian forces liberated Arkhanhelske on the eastern bank of Inhulets River and south of the Kherson-Dnipropetrovsk Oblast border.[26] ISW cannot independently verify CNN’s report and will update its maps if and when more sources confirm the report. The Ukrainian official report about the withdrawal of the 109th regiment that operates in northwestern Kherson Oblast may suggest that Ukrainians have crossed the Inhulets River into Arkhanhelske. Several Russian milbloggers amplified a report from the Telegram-based milblogger Grey Zone (about 276,000 followers) that Ukrainian forces advanced 6km from their bridgehead over the Inhulets River and seized the Sukhyi Stavok settlement (approximately 7km west of Russian GLOCs along the T2207 highway).[27] Ukrainian Former Head of Foreign Intelligence Service Mykola Malomuzh made similar remarks about the liberation of Sukhyi Stavok.[28]

Ukrainian forces also continued to conduct missile strikes on Russian ammunition depots, GLOCs, and strongholds on August 28 and August 29.[29] Beryslav Raion Military Administration Head Volodymyr Litvinov reported that Ukrainian forces struck Russian manpower and equipment concentration point at the Beryslav Machine-Building Plant, resulting in a large fire at the plant.[30] Odesa Oblast Military Administration Spokesperson Serhiy Bratchuk also reported that Ukrainian forces struck a Russian command post near the North Crimean Canal just east of Nova Kakhovka, a Russian river crossing in Lvove (west of Nova Kakhovka along the Dnipro River), and an ammunition depot in Havrylivka (approximately 33km south of the Kherson-Dnipropetrovsk Oblast border).[31] Ukrainian Telegram channels also published footage reportedly showing a strike on the Antonivsky Bridge and a nearby barge.[32] Social media users published footage of reportedly Ukrainian strikes on a Russian ammunition depot in Nova Kakhovka.[33] The Ukrainian Southern Operational Command noted that Ukrainian forces launched eight airstrikes at Russian strongholds and manpower and equipment concentration points along the line of contact on August 28.[34]

Russian forces are continuing efforts to restore their damaged GLOCs over the Dnipro River. Satellite imagery shows that Russian forces are attempting to build a pontoon crossing near the Antonivsky Bridge, which appeared to be halfway finished as of August 27.[35] Geolocated satellite imagery also showed that the Kakhovka Bridge is still out of service with strike holes on the critical junctures of the bridge.[36] Satellite imagery indicated that Russian forces are continuing to move military equipment mostly north toward Kherson City via the pontoon ferry.[37] Satellite imagery showed the movement of 100 Russian military vehicles as of August 25, with few moving south.[38] Such transfer of equipment via ferries is inefficient and vulnerable to further Ukrainian strikes. Russian forces reportedly continue to experience difficulties maintaining other GLOCs to southern Ukraine. Mariupol Mayoral Advisor Petro Andryushchenko stated that Russian logistics efforts relying on Mariupol rail transit will likely falter in the following days due to lack of electricity, damage to station cranes, and flooding that hinders rail operation in Mariupol.[39]

Russian Main Effort—Eastern Ukraine

Russian Subordinate Main Effort—Southern Kharkiv, Donetsk, Luhansk Oblasts (Russian objective: Encircle Ukrainian forces in Eastern Ukraine and capture the entirety of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, the claimed territory of Russia’s proxies in Donbas)

Russian forces conducted limited ground assaults north of Slovyansk on August 29. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces withdrew after attempting offensive operations toward Bohorodychne and Dolyna, 24km and 22km northwest of Slovyansk.[40] Geolocated footage posted on August 28 shows Ukrainian forces in Dolyna, indicating that prior Russian claims of capturing Dolyna were false.[41] Geolocated footage also shows Russian forces shelling Brazhkivka, 16km southwest of Izyum indicating that Russian forces have pulled back from this settlement to an unknown extent.[42] The Russian Defense Ministry (MoD) claimed that Russian forces struck Slovyansk and Raihorodok, northeast of Slovyansk on the Siverskyi Donetsk River.[43] Russian forces continued shelling settlements northwest and northeast of Slovyansk.[44]

Russian forces conducted a limited ground attack southeast of Siversk on August 29. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces retreated after trying to advance toward Ivano-Darivka, 14km southeast of Siversk.[45] Russian forces conducted air and tube artillery strikes near Tetyanivka, across the Siverskyi Donets River from Sviatohirsk, indicating that Russian forces likely have not advanced to the west bank of the Siverskyi Donets northwest of Siversk.[46] Russian forces continued firing on Siversk and the surrounding settlements.[47]

Russian forces conducted limited attacks south of Bakhmut on August 29. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Ukrainian forces repelled Russian forces’ attempts to advance toward Kodema and Zaitseve south of Bakhmut and east of the Bakhmut-Horlivka highway, likely to try to advance on Bakhmut from the south.[48] The Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) claimed on August 29 that DNR and Russian forces captured Kodema, but there is no evidence that Russian forces have advanced beyond the southeastern part of the settlement.[49] The Russian MoD claimed that Russian forces struck Bakhmut and Konstantynivka, 26km southwest of Bakhmut.[50]

Russian forces continued efforts to advance around Donetsk City on August 29. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces tried and failed to advance towards Pervomaiske and Nevelske to the northwest of Donetsk City and Mariinka to the southwest of Donetsk City.[51] Geolocated footage shows Russian and DNR forces advancing into Kamyanka, 11km northeast of Avdiivka.[52] Additional geolocated footage shows that Ukrainian forces maintain positions on the northwestern outskirts of Pisky, 15km northwest of Donetsk City, and that fighting is ongoing near Pisky.[53] Avdiivka City Military Administration Head Vitaliy Barabash stated that Russians only control one-half of Pisky as of August 29.[54] Russian forces continued firing on Avdiivka and the surrounding settlements.[55]

Russian forces conducted a limited ground assault in western Donetsk Oblast on August 29. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces conducted an unsuccessful ground assault toward Pavlivka, 30km southwest of Mariinka.[56] Russian forces continued firing on settlements along the line of contact.[57]

Supporting Effort #1—Kharkiv City (Russian objective: Defend ground lines of communication (GLOCs) to Izyum and prevent Ukrainian forces from reaching the Russian border)

Russian forces did not conduct any confirmed ground attacks in northeastern Kharkiv Oblast on August 29. Geolocated photos posted on August 29 show Rosgvardia Spetsnaz sweeping Udy, approximately 46km north of Kharkiv City, indicating that Russian forces have advanced within this settlement.[58] The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces launched an airstrike near Nove, approximately 22km north of Kharkiv City, and continued conducting aerial reconnaissance along the Kharkiv City Axis.[59] The Russian Defense Ministry claimed that Russian forces struck Oleksandrivka, southwest of Kharkiv City.[60] Russian forces continued to shell Kharkiv City and settlements to the north and northeast.[61]

Supporting Effort #2—Southern Axis (Russian objective: Defend Kherson and Zaporizhia Oblasts against Ukrainian counterattacks)

Russian forces conducted a limited ground assault in northwestern Kherson Oblast on August 29. Ukrainian sources reported that Russian forces failed to advance from Vysokopillya to Potomkyne in northwestern Kherson Oblast, south of the Kherson-Dnipropetrovsk Oblast border.[62] Russian forces struck Mykolaiv City and the surrounding settlements with Smerch and Uragan MLRS fire.[63] Geolocated footage shows a Russian strike landing near the Inhuletsky bridge in Mykolaiv City over the Inhulets River.[64] Russian forces continued shelling throughout the line of contact.[65]

Russian forces did not conduct any ground assaults in Zaporizhia Oblast and continued to fire artillery and MLRS rockets at Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on August 29. Russian forces continued air, rocket, and tube artillery strikes on settlements throughout the line of contact in Zaporizhia Oblast.[66] Russian forces fired on Nikopol, Marhanets, and Chervonohrihorivka, all on the opposite bank of the Dnipro River from Enerhodar.[67] Russian forces also targeted rear areas west and south of Kryvyi Rih.[68]

Geolocated footage and imagery showed a Russian coastal radar site, possibly an element of a nearby Russian 12th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment S-400 battery, on fire overnight on August 28-29.[69] ISW previously reported that Russian air defenses activated in Cape Fiolent on August 28.[70]

BBC

Ukraine’s military says it has broken through Russia’s first line of defence in the occupied Kherson region. The reported push appears to form part of a long-awaited counter-offensive being launched by Kyiv in an attempt to retake the country’s south. It follows weeks of Ukrainian attacks aimed at cutting off Russian forces there from main supply routes. Russia’s military claims that Ukrainian troops suffered „heavy losses” during an unsuccessful attacking attempt. The claims by both Ukraine and Russia have not been independently verified.

Early on Monday, Ukraine’s Kakhovka operational group in the south said that one regiment of Russian-backed forces had left its positions in the Kherson region. It added that Russian paratroopers providing the back-up had fled the battlefield. Oleksiy Arestovych, adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky’s head of office, later also said that Ukraine’s armed forces „have broken through the frontline in several places”.

CNN

he US assesses Russia is now in possession of weapons-capable Iranian drones that they will likely deploy on the battlefield in Ukraine, Biden administration officials tell CNN. The Russians picked up the drones from an Iranian airfield earlier this month and transported them back to Russia in cargo planes in mid-August, the officials said. Russian officials began training on the drones in Iran late last month, CNN previously reported, and the US now believes that Russia has officially purchased and transferred the Mohajer-6 and Shahed-series drones — the Shahed-129 and Shahed-191 — back to Russia, likely for use in the war in Ukraine. 

Ukrainian forces launched an attack on Monday at the Russian-occupied town of Nova Kakhovka, knocking out its electricity and water supply, according to Russian state media RIA Novosti, who cited a Moscow-appointed local authority.  

Fighting in the south: Ukraine has begun a counteroffensive against Russian forces in southern part of the country, the White House said on Monday. John Kirby, the communications coordinator for the National Security Council, said Russia continue to have „manpower problems.” Meanwhile, Moscow acknowledged the counteroffensive, but said the Ukrainian troops “suffered heavy losses” and “failed miserably” in their “attempted” offensive. 

Al Jazeera

Ukrainian forces have started a long-awaited counteroffensive to regain territory in the south seized by Russian forces since their invasion six months ago, the country’s southern command spokeswoman has said. “Today we started offensive actions in various directions, including in the Kherson region,” Ukrainian public broadcaster Suspilne cited Natalia Humeniuk as saying. She declined to give details of the counteroffensive, saying Russian forces in southern Ukraine remained “quite powerful”. Humeniuk also said that Ukraine had struck more than 10 ammunition dumps in the past week, adding they had “unquestionably weakened the enemy”.

The Guardian

  • Ukrainian troops are mounting a long-awaited counteroffensive in the southern region of Kherson, military officials have said. “Today we started offensive actions in various directions, including in the Kherson region,” Ukraine’s southern command spokesperson, Natalia Humeniuk, said on Monday. She declined to provide more details about the new offensive but said Ukraine’s recent strikes on Russia’s southern logistical routes had “unquestionably weakened the enemy”. Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, added in a Monday evening address: “If they want to survive, it is time for the Russian military to flee. The occupiers should know: we will oust them to the border. To our border, the line of which has not changed.”
  • Kyiv’s forces have broken through Russian defences in several sectors of the frontline near the city of Kherson, a senior adviser to Zelenskiy claimed. Oleksiy Arestovych said Ukrainian forces were also shelling the ferries in the Kherson region that Moscow is using to supply Russian-occupied territory on the west bank of the Dnieper river. A seperate Ukrainian military source told CNN that its forces have taken back four villages near the city of Kherson after breaking through the frontline in three places, with the main “target” being Kherson. The operation began with heavy shelling of Russian positions and the rear, forcing them to flee, the source was quoted as saying.

Bombardamente

✈️ Punctele de desfășurare temporară a Brigăzii 95 Aeropurtate de Asalt a Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei din satul Slaviansk din Republica Populară Donețk au fost distruse de loviturile cu arme de înaltă precizie ale Forțelor Aerospațiale Ruse. Eliminați până la 150 de naționaliști și 10 vehicule și vehicule blindate.
◽️ Ca urmare a acțiunilor ofensive ale forțelor aliate în direcția Donețk, pierderile batalionului 204 al brigăzii 241 de apărare teritorială din satul Artyomovsk au depășit 60 la sută din personal. Comandamentul grupului operațional-tactic „Liman” a retras unitățile brigăzii din zona de luptă la Kiev pentru aprovizionare.
💥 În urma unei lovituri de înaltă precizie în regiunea Slaviansk din Republica Populară Donețk, peste 100 de naționaliști care erau antrenați la centrul de pregătire al rezervei Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei au fost distruși.
💥 Aviația operațional-tactică și de armată, forțele de rachete și artileria continuă să lovească în instalațiile complexului militar-industrial al Ucrainei, unde sunt fabricate și reparate arme.
💥 Armele de înaltă precizie ale Forțelor Aerospațiale Ruse din orașul Zaporizhia de pe teritoriul uzinei Motor Sich au lovit atelierele de producție în care au fost reparate elicopterele Forțelor Aeriene Ucrainene.
◽️ În plus, trei posturi de comandă ale Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei au fost lovite în cursul zilei, inclusiv brigada 54 mecanizată a Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei din regiunea Kurakhovo din Republica Populară Donețk, precum și 42 de unități de artilerie aflate în poziții de tragere, forța de muncă și echipamentul militar al Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei în 139 de raioane.

◽️ În plus, o rachetă balistică Tochka-U a fost doborâtă în aer în districtul Novaya Kakhovka din regiunea Herson.

Centrala Zaporojie
⚠️ Regimul de la Kiev continuă provocările pentru a crea amenințarea unui dezastru nuclear provocat de om la centrala nucleară Zaporojie. În ultima zi, două unități de artilerie ale Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei au bombardat teritoriul centralei nucleare.
◽️ În total, au fost trase nouă obuze, dintre care trei au căzut în zona clădirii speciale nr.2, care stochează combustibil nuclear nou de la compania TTEL și deșeuri solide radioactive.
◽️ Ca urmare a loviturilor de obuze pe teritoriul centralei nucleare, conducta a fost lovită de schije. Ca urmare a celui de-al doilea bombardament, un obuz a căzut în zona celei de-a șasea unități de putere și alte cinci – în fața celei de-a șasea stații de pompare a blocului, care asigură răcirea acestui reactor.
◽️ Bombardarea centralei nucleare de către artileria ucraineană a fost efectuată din zona așezării Maryevka, regiunea Dnepropetrovsk.
◽️ În timpul luptei contra bateriei, unitățile Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei care au tras în centrala nucleară au fost înăbușite prin retur. În prezent, personalul tehnic cu normă întreagă monitorizează starea tehnică a centralei nucleare și asigură funcționarea acesteia. Situația radiațiilor în zona centralei nucleare rămâne normală.
Situația la sud de Bakhmut: Luptele grele continuă pentru Kodema
▪️În ciuda declarațiilor de bravura ale canalelor individuale cu referire la chat-urile locale și victoria care a predominat printre canalele DPR, așezarea Kodema, situată la sud de Bakhmut (Artemovsk), nu a fost luată. Detașamentele de asalt ale „PMC Wagner” luptă împotriva forțelor inamice superioare pentru zona fortificată echipată a Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei din sat. În cel mai bun caz, jumătate din sat este controlată, dar acest control este foarte condiționat.
Bătălia pentru Carbon
▪️Sub Vuhledar, comanda Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei a transferat rezerve, încercând să extindă zona de control la sud de Donețk și contraatacând în direcția Volnovakha. Trupele ruse au reușit să elimine forțele armate ale Ucrainei din fortărețele de la periferia orașului Pavlovka. Deși așezarea în sine continuă să fie sub controlul inamicului, lupta aici este importantă din punctul de vedere al distrugerii rezervelor Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei în direcția Donețk.
▪️Luptele din apropierea Novomayorsky, Shevchenko, Pavlovka și Nikolsky leagă gruparea Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei și distrag atenția comandamentului Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei din direcția Avdiivka.
▪️Avansarea trupelor ruse în această zonă este complicată de specificul terenului – pozițiile ocupate de Forțele Armate ale Ucrainei în apropiere de Ugledar sunt pe un deal relativ la locațiile forțelor aliate.
▪️În ultimele zile, formațiunile ucrainene, susținute de două vehicule de luptă de infanterie, au încercat să atace pozițiile NM din RPD din Nikolsky, dar, pierzând echipamentul, s-au retras la pozițiile inițiale cu pierderi.
▪️În ciuda încetinirii ofensivei Forțelor Armate Ruse, armata ucraineană a fost nevoită să părăsească o parte din pozițiile de lângă Pavlovka și Nikolsky.
Situația în direcția Slaviansko-Barvenkovsky
▪️În timp ce ofensiva asupra Slaviansk a stagnat, forțele armate ale RF continuă bătăliile de poziție în apropiere de Malaya Kamyshevakha și Brazhkovka, încercând să extindă zona de securitate din jurul Izyum.
▪️În direcția Barvenkovsky, Forțele Armate Ruse au pierdut controlul pe înălțimi cheie de la sud de linia Brazhkovka-Suligovka-Dolgenkoe încă din 10 august. În prezent, prezența Forțelor Armate RF se menține în Brazhkovka și Suligovka, iar în Dolgenkoe, partea de sud a satului se află în zona de luptă. Dealurile ocupate de Forțele Armate ale Ucrainei sunt situate la doar 1 kilometru de la marginea satelor.
▪️ Săptămâna trecută, Forțele Armate Ruse au făcut încercări repetate de a asalta Dealul 204.7 la vest de Brazhkovka: se deschide un drum de la deal până la Vernopolye, de unde operează echipaje ucrainene ATGM.
▪️ La marginea satului Kopanki au loc lupte: Forțele Armate RF au apărări la granița satului, împiedicând Forțele Armate ale Ucrainei să avanseze în continuare.
▪️ Noi echipaje ATGM ale Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei au fost, de asemenea, transferate la Novaia Dmitrovka.
▪️Trupele rusești de rachete și artileria lovesc zilnic în pozițiile din spate ale Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei din Kurulka, Adamovka, Dolina, Krasnopolye, Slaviansk, Kramatorsk și înălțimile ocupate de Forțele Armate ale Ucrainei.
Bătălia pentru Avdiivka
▪️Unități ale miliției populare din RPD, cu sprijinul artileriei ruse, luptă la periferia Avdiivka. La sud de Avdiivka, unități ale Brigăzii 1 Slavă înaintează în direcția Experimentat din Spartak. Pozițiile inamice de pe linia frontului din spatele aeroportului Donețk au fost fortificate din 2014: a fost creată o zonă fortificată puternică cu puncte de tragere pe termen lung echipate. Curățarea la fiecare sută de metri de teritoriu în direcția șoselei de centură Donețk necesită munca grea comună a artileriei și infanteriei forțelor aliate
▪️La nord de mina Butovka, unitățile NM din RPD au ajuns pe șoseaua de centură Donețk.
▪️Pozițiile Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei în partea de vest a pistei aeroportului Donețk sunt supuse zilnic focului concentrat din artileria de tun și rachetă. Între Peski și Pervomaisky, forțele aliate folosesc și tactica „baraj” asupra pozițiilor Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei în zona podului de pe șoseaua de centură Donețk și stația de semințe Donețk.
▪️Din partea de est a Avdiivka, forțele aliate au ajuns pe drumul Donețk-Konstantinovka până la secțiunea de la Novobakhmutsky la Kamenka. La sud de Kamenka, se efectuează tiruri intensive de artilerie și rachete pe poziții ale Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei în zona cabanelor de vară de lângă Krutaya Balka și a pădurii din zona stației de filtrare Donețk. Tancurile NM din RPD lucrează de pe șoseaua de centură Donețk pe pozițiile Forțelor Armate ale Ucrainei.
▪️ La nord de Avdiivka, NM din RPD a încercat să asalteze Krasnogorovka. Cu toate acestea, nu s-a putut lua satul, unitățile de miliție populară s-au înrădăcinat la periferie.
▪️ Peste 1.200 de militari ucraineni au murit în timpul înfrângerii ofensivei trupelor ucrainene din Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog și din alte direcții. De asemenea, acțiunile efective ale grupului de trupe rusești au distrus într-o zi 48 de tancuri, 46 de vehicule de luptă de infanterie, alte 37 de vehicule de luptă blindate, 8 camionete cu mitraliere grele.
