Quote: "The enemy's offensive on the Kupiansk front is currently unsuccessful.
The fighting continues, but the initiative is on our side.
On the southern flank around Bakhmut, today, like on all previous days, our troops advanced.
Fighting continued on the northern flank today. The enemy is trying to regain lost positions. Our soldiers have to deal with densely mined territories and intense enemy fire."

Russian sabotage groups attempt to enter Ukraine from north – General Nayev:
Russia has attempted to use sabotage and reconnaissance groups to enter Ukraine’s northern Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, Ukrainian Joint Forces Commander, Lieutenant-General Serhiy Nayev wrote on Telegram on July 18.
The Russians are shelling Ukraine’s northern oblasts with multiple rocket launchers, artillery and mortars, as well as launching airstrikes, he said.
The units of the North operational and strategic grouping are fully ready to repel any threats from Russia Nayev emphasized.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s General Staff has foreseen all possible options for the development of events and appropriate measures to strengthen positions in case of a possible escalation in the north.
The number of forces and equipment in the northern direction is sufficient to fulfill the tasks set by the state leadership, the officer stressed.
The Russians most often shell civilians and civil infrastructure facilities, Nayev added.
Earlier, the commander reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to strengthen defense measures on the border with Russia, creating a “no-go zone.” In particular, thousands of trenches and ditches have been dug over the past 10 days.
