Ukrainian counteroffensive: Genocide of Russian artillery

According to Ukraine’s General Staff, the situation in the Volyn and Polissya sectors in northern Ukraine remained unchanged. Designated units of the armed forces of Belarus are performing tasks in the areas bordering Ukraine. There are no signs of offensive groups being formed, the General Staff reported.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to conduct counteroffensive operations in the Melitopol direction on the southern front and offensive (assault) operations in the Bakhmut sector, “destroying the enemy and liberating the occupied territories step by step,” the General Staff reported. As a result of the assault operations, the Ukrainian Army achieved “partial success” in the areas of Klishchiyivka and Andriyivka in the Donetsk Oblast, pushing the Russian forces out of their positions and consolidating the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, according to the General Staff.

Over the past day, Ukraine’s Air Force carried out ten strikes on the areas of concentration of Russian troops, weapons, and military equipment, the General Staff reported.

Within the last 24 hours, Ukraine’s rocket forces and artillery units destroyed one Russian command post, two anti-aircraft missile systems, five Russian artillery systems, and one ammunition dump, according to Ukraine’s General Staff.
