"The attacks in the operational area in the vicinity of Mariupol continue being committed although their intensity has slightly decreased compared to previous days. However, the suburbs of Mariupol were also shelled. The situation at the forefront is stable. Our units gained a firm foothold on high grounds near Vodiane and greatly improved tactical superiority. All the enemy's attempts to force our units back from these high grounds were repulsed. The detachments of the 9th regiment of the 1st Army Corps of the Russian Federation sustained serious losses," he wrote.

"Vodiane and Shyrokyne remain under the control of the Ukrainian troops. The enemy is trying to hold Kominternove, Leninske, and Dzerzhynske. The situation in the neutral zone remains tense. Apparently, the Russian generalship will continue committing armed provocations near Mariupol to keep the city in fear. The enemy's objective is to take positions as close to the city as possible. The war continues," Butusov added.
