The Army of Ukraine continues offensive actions. In the last few days, 12 settlements were liberated in the Kherson region: Dudchany, Pyatikhatky, Borozenske, Sadok, Bezvodne, Ishchenka, Kostromka, Krasnolyubetsk, Kalinivske, Bobrovy Kut, Bezimenne and Blagodatne. The special operation to liberate Ukrainians from the Russian yoke is ongoing, so official details from the Ministry of defence will be released later. On the cover of the article, you can see a photo that local residents of Kherson took today.
Retreating from the Kherson region, the occupiers deliberately destroy the region's critical infrastructure and loot the houses of Ukrainians. Russians are holding Ukrainians hostage in settlements that have not yet been de-occupied. In the village of Zelenivka, the Russians forbid local residents to leave the territory and even leave their homes. In the towns of Tyagintsi and Kozatsk, the occupiers mined roads and public infrastructure objects: several Ukrainian civilians were blown up by Russian explosive devices.
Russia is shelling Ukraine along the contact line. In the Donetsk region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine repelled Russian attacks in the settlements of Novoselivske, Myasozharivka, Makiivka, and Bilogorivka of the Luhansk region, and Vesele, Soledar, Bakhmut, Andriivka, Krasnohorivka, Opytne, Pervomaiske, Nevelske, Maryinka, and Pavlivka.
The occupiers continue to hit the public and energy infrastructure: they have carried out almost 100 attacks with MLRS, missile attacks and 17 airstrikes. People were injured and killed in Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia and Mykolaiv regions.
