Struggle

  • Russian forces attacked Ukrainian positions with artillery fire and launched almost 400 attacks in the eastern region alone, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a video address.
  • Zelenskyy added that Ukrainian troops in the south were “consistently and very calculatedly destroying the potential of the occupiers.”
  • Oleh Zhdanov, a Kyiv-based military analyst, said offensive battles were taking place on the Bakhmut and Avdiivka front lines in the Donetsk region.
  • Ukrainian forces are moving towards Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv, among others. Russian troops are regrouping in the direction of Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk and Luhansk, Zhdanov said.
  • Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of Zelenskyy’s administration, said Russian forces fired on a residential building in the Kherson region. “There may be people under the rubble. Emergency services are working on the spot,” Tymoshenko said.
  • The head of the UN nuclear watchdog warned that whoever fired artillery at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was “playing with fire” as his team prepared to inspect it for damage.
  • The International Atomic Energy Agency said more than a dozen explosions rocked the nuclear plant on Saturday and Sunday night.

Kherson

  • Hundreds of Kherson residents flocked to buy groceries at the first Ukrainian supermarket to open since pro-Kyiv forces recaptured the city earlier this month.
  • The city of Kherson is still without electricity, running water and heating.
