In the Limansky direction, it is not excluded that the enemy will force the Seversky Donets River in the Dronovka-Belogorovka section. For fire cover for the crossing, the invaders deployed units of rocket and cannon artillery.
In the Severodonetsk direction , the enemy, with the support of artillery, is conducting assault operations in the directions of Toshkovka and Ustinovka.
