The Russian military leadership has set itself the task of breaking the defense of the Ukrainian armed forces in the Lugansk region. Nevertheless, the Ukrainian army is gradually advancing.
The relevant statement was made by the head of the Luhansk regional military administration, Serhii Haidai, at a national conference telethonreports a correspondent of Ukrinform.
“The Russian military leadership has set itself the task of breaking the defense of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. From then on, fierce fighting, shelling continues every day. But this will not stop our military: they are advancing every day towards the liberation Luhansk region, although progress is not as fast as we would like,” Haidai said.
In his words, the Ukrainian military is highly motivated and it is better for them to go on the offensive than to sit in trenches.
According to Haidai, near Makiivka of the Svatove district, the Russians lost about 500 soldiers. Rashists do not take away the bodies of their soldiers who fell on the battlefield, otherwise they would have to compensate their relatives.
Russian troops continue their attempts to retake Bilohorivka. If pushed further from this settlement, the Ukrainian army will then liberate Lysychansk, and the Rashists clearly understand this, Haidai noted.
