Ukraine also launched three air strikes against Russian air defense systems, and Ukrainian missile troops targeted eight Russian artillery systems, three ammunition depots, a radar station, three electronic warfare stations, and one unspecified military target, according to the report.

The General Staff recorded 78 skirmishes with Russian forces over the past day, as well as two Russian missile strikes, 48 air strikes, and 79 attacks by multiple-launch rocket systems, which targeted both military and civilian targets.
