Russian forces continue to bombard Ukrainian positions at several locations in the Donetsk region. 

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said there are reports circulating that Russia's military is plotting a symbolic blitz close to the one-year anniversary of the invasion.  

Kyiv says its units are repelling the attacks in Bakhmut, Soledar and Vuhledar, and are preparing themselves for further escalation.
