KHARKIV - Russia “does not stop conducting offensive operations” in the eastern areas of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said in its daily update on Monday.

In the Kharkiv region in the northeast, Russia fired on the areas north and northeast of the city, Ukraine’s military said.

A separate update from regional officials said “the night was relatively calm” with “sporadic shelling,” adding that three people were injured in villages to the northeast of Kharkiv city.

In the Sumy region in the northeast, Russia launched air strikes and artillery shelling, the military said. Separate regional updates on Sumy said there was no casualties from the attacks.

In southern Ukraine, in the Kryvyi Rih area, Russia continues artillery shelling of Ukrainian troop positions and is conducting a “counter-battery fight,” the military said.

Around 85 kilometers (53 miles) to the southwest of Kryvyi Rih, regional officials said the center of Novyi Buh city was shelled overnight, injuring two people and damaging a shop, a pharmacy and some residential buildings. Further south, the shelling continues against Bereznehuvate, where a school and residential buildings were damaged.

Along the Black Sea coast to the west in the Odesa region, a regional update said there were two missile strikes, one overnight and one on Monday morning. One missile was shot down by Ukrainian air defense forces. A non-functioning bridge was also hit, with no casualties reported, but damage was caused to several homes, the statement said.

NATO support for Ukraine “unbreakable,” says Spanish Prime Minister

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Monday that NATO’s support for Ukraine is “unbreakable” as it has battled an invasion by Russian troops for more than three months. Sanchez was speaking at a Madrid ceremony marking the 40th anniversary since Spain joined the alliance. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was also present.

“The atrocities in the war in Ukraine, and the death of innocent victims leads to condemnations (of Vladimir Putin) without reserve,” Sanchez said. “Putin will not achieve his aims because NATO allies’ support of Ukraine is unbreakable.”

Stoltenberg praised Spain’s contributions to NATO and looked ahead to NATO’s summit in Madrid at the end of June.

Stoltenberg said: “We will deepen our cooperation with like-minded countries and organizations, including the European Union and countries in the Indo-Pacific. We will also be joined by Finland and Sweden that just made historic applications to join our alliance.”
