▪️Battles and artillery duels are taking place on the outskirts of Seversk, for heights south of Serebryanka.
▪️ In the Soledar direction, Allied forces are fighting on the approaches to Bakhmut:
➖The most intense fighting is taking place in the vicinity of Pokrovskoye: after capturing the southern outskirts of the settlement, the Wagner PMC assault squads continue to break the defenses inside the settlement itself. The capture of Pokrovskoye will make it possible to reach the eastern outskirts of Bakhmut (Artemivsk) and begin to storm one of the key links in the AFU defense in this section of the front.
➖ To the north of Pokrovskoye, from the direction of Vladimirovka, Bakhmutskoye is being stormed - it is the "gateway" to Soledar.
➖Ukrainian artillery is firing a barrage in the area of Berestovoye, Belogorovka and Yakovlevka.

➖Uglegorsk TPP still remains under the control of the AFU. The command left the rank-and-file personnel and left the area of the power plant. On the previous day, key strongholds around the plant were taken, leaving the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the last escape route to Semigorie.
➖Simultaneously with the escape from the Uglegorskaya TPP, units of the 72nd brigade retreated from Novoluganskoye to Semigorie. Units of the Allied Forces entered Novoluganskoye, the assault and mopping-up continues.
➖ The AFU command deploys army and tactical aviation along the entire Novoluganske - Bakhmut route to cover the retreat of its forces.
▪️ Ukrainian artillery continues shelling Donetsk, Gorlovka and other settlements in the agglomeration.

❗️🇷🇺🇺🇦🇩🇪 Germany supplied Ukraine with multiple rocket launchers, according to defense minister
Ukraine has received another delivery of heavy weapons from Germany, says Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD). In addition to additional self-propelled howitzers, the delivery is said to involve Mars II multiple rocket launchers. Plans are already underway to deliver other systems as well.
Ukraine has received more heavy weapons from Germany for its defense against the Russian war of aggression. "The promised Mars II multiple rocket launchers and another three self-propelled howitzers 2000 have been delivered. We keep our word," Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) said on Tuesday. On Monday, her Ukrainian counterpart had reported that the first three Gepard anti-aircraft tanks had arrived from Germany. Several tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition had also been handed over.
Lambrecht spoke of five Gepard anti-aircraft gun tanks delivered in the meantime. In total, Ukraine will receive 30 Gepard systems from the industry with about 60,000 rounds of ammunition, mainly from the Bundeswehr, he said. Also from Bundeswehr stocks are the three Mars II multiple rocket launchers and the ten self-propelled howitzers 2000.
The medium artillery rocket system (Mars) can fire missiles with different effects, such as guided rockets with GPS systems or mine ejection rockets for blocking off sections of terrain. The launch batteries with a combat load of twelve missiles are mounted on tracked vehicles that can travel at speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour.
An artillery tracking radar of the Cobra type will also be delivered by the industry as a supplement to these weapon systems before the end of September, Lambrecht explained. "The contract has already been signed, and now the training of Ukrainian soldiers on this highly complex system will begin." It still needs to be finally prepared for delivery by the industry, he said. "It will enable our artillery systems to act even faster and more precisely," the minister promised.
He also said that training on the promised Iris-T SLM air defense missile system should begin in a few days. The manufacturing company will be able to deliver "brand new" to Ukraine in the fall, he said.
The Gepard tanks were the second delivery of heavy weapons from Germany to the war zone a good five months after the Russian attack on Ukraine. In June, seven self-propelled howitzers had already arrived there, heavy artillery pieces that can hit targets 40 kilometers away. In addition to the delivery of three multiple rocket launchers, three self-propelled howitzers and the Iris-T air defense system, three armored recovery vehicles had been announced.
