Previously, in this area, the Ukrainian Armed Forces eliminated and wounded almost 200 invaders, shot down a Su-25 aircraft, destroyed three armored personnel carriers and three armored personnel carriers, and damaged other equipment of the Russian troops.

It is noted that intense fighting continued in the area of Novooleksandrivka at night, and the Defense Forces are taking measures to stabilize the situation.

As reported, a chief sergeant with the call sign "Hockey", who is fighting as part of a company of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Pokrovsk direction, expressed his belief that the battle for Pokrovsk will last longer than for Bakhmut. He emphasized that the city, which is currently being targeted by the enemy, is an important logistics center.
