Editor’s Note

Donetsk oblast remains the hottest spot in Ukraine as Russia continues to shell Ukrainian cities while Ukraine destroys Russian military facilities behind the front line.

The authorities of Kazakhstan donated ambulances and 20 tons of medical equipment and medicines to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Embassy of Israel handed over 100,000 food kits to Ukraine over a week.

Currently, the situation in Donetsk oblast remains difficult. The direction of Bakhmut saw the Russians achieve minimal success as they continued their assaults on the city from three sides. The Ukrainian Armed Forces stopped the occupiers in the areas of Soledar, Vershyna, and Zaitseve. The situation was hard in the area of Kodema. The area of Avdiivka and Mariinka saw failed Russian assaults from the directions of Krasnohorivka and Piski. Ukraine controls Pisky, although there’s heavy fighting going on for almost a week. The situation is the same in Mariinka where the Ukrainian forces also repulsed all Russian assaults. The Siversk direction has been active for several days. Fighting continues in the areas of Ivano-Dariivka, Verkhnokamianskyi, Hryhorivka, and Vyimka. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are holding defense.
