Ukrainian Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Maliar additionally announced that over the past week, Ukrainian troops in the Tavrisk (Zaporizhia) direction have advanced up to seven kilometres and liberated 113 square kilometres of territory, including eight settlements in western Donetsk and western Zaporizhia oblasts.

Russian milbloggers claimed that Ukrainian troops attacked south of Velyka Novosilka in western Donetsk Oblast.

Geolocated footage posted on 19 June confirms that Ukrainian troops liberated Piatykhatky, about 25 km southwest of Orikhiv in western Zaporizhia Oblast.

Milbloggers also reported fighting south and southwest of Orikhiv over the course of the day on 19 June."
