The OC "South" report says: "The situation in the operational zone of the South Buh direction remains difficult, albeit controlled. The enemy is continuing to wage hostilities along the occupied lines, giving preference to remote forms of countermeasures – missile and artillery fire, as well as airstrikes. A desperate assault attempt by the forces of two amphibious assault detachments toward Lozove saw no success."
The enemy launched five airstrikes at the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the line of contact. Ukrainian troops sustained no casualties, reports the Command.
