Over the course of the day, Russian forces launched one missile strike, 31 airstrikes, and 45 attacks by multiple-launch rocket systems against Ukrainian military positions and populated areas, leaving dead and wounded among the civilian population, according to the General Staff.

Some 30 combat engagements took place on Aug. 18, the report added.

Russian forces attempted unsuccessfully to retake lost ground in the Urozhaine area already on Aug. 17.
