The situation on the eastern front remains difficult. The most difficult are the Bakhmut and Limano-Kupyansky directions, where Russian troops are trying to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Ukrainian troops continue to hold back the enemy’s advance in the Kupyansk-Liman direction.
“The most stubborn battles take place in the areas of the settlements of Raigorodka and Kovalevka, where the enemy, despite losses, is trying to break through the defenses of our troops using assault troops in armored vehicles,” said Syrsky.
