A shooting at a Russian training base close to the Ukrainian border left 11 individuals dead and 15 more injured. A group of volunteers who intended to fight in Ukraine on the side of Russia came in contact after two assailants opened fire.
The Russian ministry of defence described this attack as a terrorist attack that took place near the Kharkiv region of Ukraine situated in Belgorod.

According to the ministry of war, the attack was organized by Ukrainian terrorist groups responsible for an explosion at the Crimean bridge; no other information was provided. The victims do not include any civilians.
The pro-Russian forces of Donetsk have targeted the vital eastern city of Bakhmut, where the situation is most rigid on the front, said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a video speech Friday night.

According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Army, Ukrainian forces launched airstrikes against Russian targets in the vicinity of the southern cities of Nikolaev and Bashtanka. In the assault, three self-propelled artillery installations, one howitzer, and a radio communication station were destroyed, and 14 Russian soldiers were killed.

Sebastien Lecornu, France’s minister of defence, stated that his nation would train up to 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers on French own.

The French “Crotale” air defence systems will be delivered to Ukraine. In addition to the 18 that have already been given, the minister stated consideration is being given to supplying six additional Caesar mobile artillery units.
