Germany says that it will send the IRIS-T air defence missile system to Ukraine following a request from Ukraine for heavy weapons.
Ukraine says that it has repelled a Russian advance on the cities of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk in Luhansk Oblast. Authorities say that twelve people were killed in the offensive and that over 60 houses were destroyed.
Ukraine says that its troops have pushed back Russian forces in a counter-offensive, reaching the border with Russia. Kharkiv governor Oleh Synyehubov confirms that Ukrainian forces have restored control of a border crossing with Russia in the region.
The United Kingdom's Armed Forces Secretary James Heappey says that Ukraine can strike targets inside Russia with British weapons, saying that it is "completely legitimate" in order to disrupt attacks on Ukraine.
A report from the "Irish Times" said that the United Nations told its employees in a communications guidance to refer to the war in Ukraine as a "conflict" or "military offensive" rather than as a "war" or an "invasion", and also ordered employees to not put the Ukrainian flag on any of their social media accounts to "avoid reputational risk", in an attempt to avoid upsetting Russia. However, Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general of the United Nations, wrote in an email to "The Guardian" that no such recommendation was ever issued.
