In the face of unrelenting aggression, Ukraine’s Armed Forces have demonstrated unwavering determination, successfully repelling Russian attacks on various fronts. As the world watches closely, it is essential to provide a comprehensive account of the recent developments in this ongoing conflict.
The Battlefield Overview
The latest reports from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as of 06:00 on September 22, 2023, reveal a grim reality. Over the past day, 26 combat clashes have erupted in different regions. The enemy’s onslaught has been relentless, consisting of 59 missile strikes and 62 air strikes. Notably, 55 attacks were launched from multiple-launch missile systems, targeting not only military positions but also civilian areas.
The Impact on Civilian Areas
The repercussions of these attacks have been felt across numerous regions. Air strikes have been recorded in Hremiach of Chernihiv Oblast, Dihtiarne in Sumy Oblast, and several other locations in Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Zaporizhzhia Oblasts. Shockingly, over 120 settlements in these regions have come under artillery fire, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
