Where they attacked
Russian troops are using aircraft and artillery in the Donetsk region, and Luhansk and Mykolaiv regions are under fire. At night, the Russians again tried to attack the Odesa region with missiles shot down by our air defenses. The russians shelled the Sumy region, and robbed an oil plant in Zaporizhia.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine withdrew from the city of Popasna, Luhansk region, to fortified positions. The city has been heavily shelled for two months.
