The situation at the front:

In connection with the partial mobilization in the Russian Federation, the Russian command in the temporarily occupied territories is trying to limit the rights of servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces who have signed short-term contracts.

In the units of the occupiers in the Zaporozhye region, it was announced that the term of the contract does not matter, and the time of stay in the combat zone from now on depends on the decision of the command.

In addition, partial mobilization is called the reason for the delay of vacations and cash payments, which already leads to a significant deterioration of the morale and psychological state in the enemy's units.

During the day, units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine repelled enemy attacks in the areas of the settlements of Soledar, Vyimka, Kurdyumivka, Zaitseve, Novomykhailivka, and Pervomaiske.

Aviation of the Defense Forces carried out 26 strikes - it was confirmed that 20 areas of concentration of manpower and military equipment of the enemy and 6 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems were hit.

Missile troops and artillery hit, in particular, 5 control points, 13 areas of concentration of enemy manpower and equipment, 3 positions of anti-aircraft missile complexes, 3 systems of missile troops and artillery, among them "Hurricane", and 2 warehouses with ammunition.

Losses are being verified.

 announced partial mobilization 

throughout the country from today.
