Until we have received enough weapons from our partners, the main task of the state is to maintain an army that will take back all occupied territories. The military has clear plans; Western HIMARS are already working on the fronts. There are few of them yet, but there will be more.

Today, the Ukrainian army conducts maneuver defense, giving positive results. They can already be seen in the Kharkiv region and Kherson region.

Yesterday, according to reports from the General Staff, the russian army carried out assault operations near Sosnivka of the Zolochiv community in the Kharkiv region but retreated unsuccessfully.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces also repressed an attempt to attack the invaders in the direction of Lozova.

Near Kherson, the Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed 18 occupiers, two ammunition depots, and two Nona-S mortars, the South operational command reports in the morning.

In Sloviansk's direction, our defenders repelled the enemy assault and pushed the invaders back into the area of ​​the Dolyna settlement. The enemy is conducting assault operations near Mazanivka, and the fighting continues. In the Kramatorsk direction, the Ukrainian forces inflicted significant losses on the enemy during his attempted offensive in the areas of Verkhnokamianske, Bilohorivka, and Hryhorivka settlements. The occupiers left.

Over the past day, bombers and attack aircraft of Ukraine's Air Force destroyed two field ammunition depots, two strongholds of the russian occupiers, and more than ten units of enemy equipment. Workforce losses are being specified.

The total losses of the occupiers from February 24 to July 6 already amount to 36,500 soldiers!

The battle for Sloviansk will be the next critical battle in the Donbas, British intelligence says. According to military experts, the decisive battle for Ukraine will most likely occur not in the east, where russia is delivering the major blow, but in the south, where Ukraine has launched a counteroffensive to regain territory.

Canada transferred 140 tons of buckwheat seeds to Ukraine to overcome the deficit, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy reports.

Because of this, there may be risks that it will be unprofitable to grow buckwheat.

Military expert Oleh Zhdanov spoke about the successes of HIMARS during the first two weeks of use. In two weeks, our service members destroyed about 20 warehouses of the russian army on the territory of Ukraine of various importance.
