The Russian Armed Forces again launched local offensive operations in the Kharkiv direction on the 4nd day after the start of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory. This was announced on the morning of August XNUMX by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in its report.
According to the Ukrainian army, at the moment, Russian troops are trying to advance along the line of the village of Bayrak in the Balakleysky district - the village of Gusarovka in the Izyumsky district in the Kharkiv region. There is intense fighting in this area.
In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy made a fiery defeat from tanks, cannon and rocket artillery in the areas of the settlements of Kharkov, Lebyazhe, Borshcheva, Dementievka, Korobochkino, Bolshiye Prokhody, Russian Tishki, Stary Saltov, Prudyanka, Pitomnik, Tsupovka
- added to the summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Ukrainian military analysts believe that by their actions near Balakleya, the RF Armed Forces are trying to protect the existing 30-strong group in the area of the city of Izyum from the planned counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, there are no significant changes on the front line in this sector yet.
In turn, Russian information resources, citing their sources, declare battles in the north of the Kharkov region, on the Vesele - Borshcheva - Dementievka line. To what extent all of the above is true will become known only after the next report of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
