Russians attempt offensive on the Bakhmut and Lyman axis, but without success — General Staff:
Russian forces have focused on the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Mariinka sectors, while Ukraine struck an enemy S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, according to the Ukrainian military’s General Staff’s June 15 evening update.
During the day, the enemy launched 5 missile strikes, using Kh-101/Kh-555 and Kh-59 cruise missiles.
In addition, more than 40 airstrikes and more than 20 attacks from multiple rocket launchers on Ukrainian troop positions and populated areas were recorded.
Unfortunately, the strikes left a number of civilians dead and wounded, as well as causing damage to industrial facilities in Kryvyi Rih in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast and residential buildings and administrative infrastructure in Kherson Oblast.
The probability of missile and air strikes throughout Ukraine remains very high.
The enemy continues to focus its main efforts on the Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Marinka sectors, where heavy fighting continues. Twenty six combat engagements took place throughout the day.
In the Volyn and Polissky sectors, the operational situation remained without significant changes. No signs of formation of enemy offensive groups were detected.
The Republic of Belarus continues to support Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine, and the enemy continues to train units on Belarusian training grounds.
In the Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi sectors, the enemy carried out airstrikes on Yanzhulivka and Halahanivka of Chernihiv Oblast. --->READ MORE HERE

Brigadier General Oleksandr Tarnavskyi said on June 15 the military is making progress near Vuhledar in eastern Donetsk Oblast.
"Our troops are advancing near Vuhledar. The destruction of enemy forces continues," Tarnavskyi said.
Ukrainian forces have had limited success so far.
"Our troops and units are moving forward in the face of fierce fighting, air, and artillery superiority of the enemy, which is holding on to its positions," the Southern Command spokesperson said, adding that the military improved its tactical positions.
Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said that in the east, Russia continues to concentrate forces and resources, redeploying reserves from other areas, including airborne assault troops.
The Russian troops are trying to prevent the Ukrainian advance, Maliar said in a Telegram post on June 15.
The fighting is ongoing in the directions of Bakhmut, Berdiansk, and Mariupol, according to the report.
"Advance is about a kilometer in each direction," Maliar said.
According to the Institute for the Study of War, a U.S.-based think tank, Ukraine continues counteroffensive operations in at least three directions.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces advanced up to three kilometers in the area of Mala Tokmachka in Zaporizhzhia Oblast and up to seven kilometers to the south of Velyka Novosilka in Donetsk Oblast over the past week, according to the military.
