In Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk province, Russian forces focus on attacking Siversk and Bakhmut. Ukrainian general staff report unsuccessful Russian attempts to attack Verkhnokamyanske, east of Siversk.

Also in the south, Russian forces attempt limited offensives in Davydiv Brid and Bilohirka but withdraw.
