On the Volyn, Polissia, Sivershchyna and Slobozhanshchyna fronts, the situation has not changed significantly, and no Russian offensive groups have been detected.

Russian occupation troops do not cease the looting in the temporarily occupied territories. In particular, in the settlements of Hornostaivka, Kairy, Bratoliubivka and Nyzhni Sirohozy in Kherson Oblast, the occupiers, moving in groups of 10-15 people, search the empty homes of local residents and take away all household appliances and furniture.

  1. It’s always heartwarming to hear about cockroaches and their material being fried. In the meantime, the cockroaches are not moving away from criminal behavior and continue targeting civilians every day of the week, every week of the month.
