According to officials, Russian forces targeted the communities of Yunakivka, Bilopillia, Znob-Novhorodske, Shalyhyne, Esman, and Novoslobidske.

Officials recorded 70 strikes with artillery, MLRS, grenade launchers, and mortars in the settlements. The administration didn’t provide information about casualties.
