Ukrainian military continue to respond harshly to enemy assaults and offensive actions. Since the beginning of the day, the most intense attacks by Russians are reported in the Pokrovsk direction, according to the latest update from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Since the beginning of the current day, there have been 47 combat engagements on the frontlines. The most attacks by the enemy are occurring in the Pokrovsk direction, accounting for nearly 30% of all conflicts.
Russians from their territory continue to target controlled aerial bombs on the Kharkiv region. Specifically, the enemy struck Vovchansk with six bombs, Vesele with four, and dropped one aerial bomb near Lyptsi. Currently, four enemy attacks near Vovchansk have been repelled in the Kharkiv direction, with two ongoing.
In the Kupiansk direction, fighting continues near Stelmakhivka. Additionally, Russian terrorists are bombing areas of Kupiansk, Stelmakhivka, and Petropavlivka, using a total of eight guided aerial bombs.

Russia's Kharkiv offensive turns catastrophic: Ukrainian Forces decimate elite brigade:
The Russian advance in the Kharkiv region is turning into a devastating slaughter for the Russian military. Ukrainian Forces have reportedly decimated the elite 83rd Airborne Brigade in the town of Vovchansk. Focus investigates the developments on the Kharkiv front.
Russia's offensive, aimed at capturing a broad area and bringing heavy artillery closer to Kharkiv or even launching an assault on the city itself, has failed, according to Forbes. "As of several weeks after the 9th of May offensive began, around 30,000 Russian soldiers are stuck in Vovchansk, just a few miles south of the Russian border."
Kharkiv, located merely 40 kilometers from the Russian border, has been under continuous alert with sirens and explosions throughout the day and night.
Over more than a month, the situation along the Kharkiv border has fluctuated multiple times. Initial concern post-offensive was that the breakthrough could lead to a ground operation reaching Kharkiv, but rapid redeployment of Ukrainian forces, international arms support, and improved battlefield conditions stemmed the Russian advance. Crucially, the US allowed Ukraine to use Western-supplied artillery and rocket systems against Russian territory, reducing attacks on Kharkiv. However, these missile attacks have been substituted with regular guided bomb strikes, keeping the border conflict active, though the Russian offensive has reduced in recent days.
Military expert Petro Chernyk noted that the situation in Vovchansk is highly volatile, making it difficult to provide accurate battlefield updates. He declined to comment on reports that Russian soldiers are occupying a central parts aggregation plant in the town.
The American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported on June 26 that Ukrainian forces had recently regained some lost positions in Vovchansk. Geolocated footage from June 25 shows Ukrainian troops advancing along Soborna Street in central Vovchansk, with Russian soldiers either surrendering or facing heavy casualties at the factory site.
The fighting extends from northeast of Kharkiv near Vovchansk and Tykhe, to the north around Lyptsi and Hlyboke. The Russian forces drew away Ukrainian troops from the south and east, enabling them to halt the advance.
Russia continues to send reinforcements to Kharkiv. According to Colonel Yuriy Povkh of the Kharkiv Ukrainian forces, the Russians plan to deploy the "9th Motorized Brigade of the 51st Army". Lieutenant Colonel Nazar Voloshyn of the Ukrainian Khortytsia troops mentioned Russia's intention to move the 155th Marine Brigade of the Pacific Fleet to the Kharkiv axis to compensate for significant losses. --->READ MORE HERE
