The summary of the 148th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 21st July 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Russian forces are unable to gain a momentum as Ukrainian troops continue to successfully intercept and repel attacks on all fronts.

The damage caused to Antonovskiy Bridge by Ukrainian strike limits resupply of Russian units in Kherson, putting the enemy troops under the pressure. Furthermore, Ukrainian artillery was able to strike Russian depot in occupied Skadovsk in Kherson Oblast.

Kharkiv Front

includes the area of Kharkiv and Chuhuiv

 Kharkiv & Chuhuiv direction

  • Russian troops are stepping up the attacks in Kharkiv Oblast. They attacked Ukrainian positions at Pytomnyk in an attempt to gain new ground alongside the highway M-20. The attack was repelled.

Bakhmut Front

includes the vicinity of Bakhmut

  • The enemy focuses primarily on capturing Vuhlehirsk powerplant, but have no success. Given the amount of attacks on the power plant recently, it’s safe to assume that Ukrainian troops abandoned Luhanske settlement to avoid potential encirclement.
  • Russian forces continue to probe Ukrainian defense lines in the vicinity of Vershyna and Novoluhanske.

Slovyansk Front

includes the vicinity of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk

Slovyansk direction

  • The enemy, again, tried to gain full control over Bohorodychne settlement. Ukrainian defenders, stationed on the highround nearby, repelled the assault without much trouble.
  • Russian troops advanced closer to Hryhorivka, but the settlement remains in Ukrainian hands.
  • The enemy led an attack towards Ivano-Darivka from the direction of the nearby oil refinery. The attack was repulsed.
  • Spirne is continuing to change hands. Ukrainian forces seem to have built a solid fortified position nearby, and Russian troops are unable to hold the settlement for an at least a day.
