The summary of the 184th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 26th August 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

The combat activity of Russian forces ceased to a minimum during the last 48 hours. The enemy is unable to gather enough forces to make a meaningful push and break through Ukrainian defense lines.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces successfully targeted the last working bridge across Dnipro river. All Russian forces stationed on the western bank of Dnipro now relies on the pontoon bridge near Antonovsky bridge.

  • No activity on the ground during the last 48 hours in Kharkiv & Chuhuiv direction.

Bakhmut Front

  • The battle of Soledar and Bakhmutske continues, neither side reported any new gains or losses during the last 48 hours.
  • Russian forces attempted to push closer to Bakhmut. Ukrainian defenders repelled the attack.
  • The enemy tried to advance towards Kodema from the direction of Travneve. They didn’t succeed.

Slovyansk direction

  • Ukrainian forces repelled a Russian attack towards Dolyna from the direction of Pasika.
  • The enemy tried to advance in the vicinity of Staryi Karavan. The attack was repelled by the defenders. This is especially interesting report, as we previously didn’t know about Ukrainian presence on the left bank of Siverskyi Donets river. I marked both Staryi Karavan and Brusivka as unknown control until we learn more.

It’s amazing how a single weapons system – HIMARS – can slow the Russians down so much. If only Ukraine had more of these and the long rage ATACMS missiles.
