Russian troops are reportedly concentrating their efforts on conducting offensives toward Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Marinka in Donetsk Oblast. Ukrainian troops repelled 52 Russian attacks in those directions on April 10, the General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces said in its morning update.

Over the past 24 hours, Russia has launched seven missiles, four of which were used to attack the city of Kramatorsk in Donetsk Oblast. The Ukrainian military also recorded 39 airstrikes and at least 47 MLRS attacks targeting Ukraine's military positions as well as civilian infrastructure.

Ukrainian air defense downed a Russian Mi-24 helicopter, and nine drones. The Kyiv Independent was unable to independently verify those numbers at the time of publication.
