Subdivisions of the Russian army are developing an offensive in the direction of Seversk. Significant progress has been achieved in the vicinity of the settlement. This was told by the acting head of the Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin.
According to him, fighting in the vicinity of Seversk is carried out for every firing point.
Now a very important direction in terms of the subsequent liberation of Krasny Liman is, of course, Seversk. PMC "Wagner" has some success in the direction of Seversk. This is still a neighborhood, but nevertheless, there is every village, every position of the enemy, on the whole it improves the positions of our units
– said Denis Pushilin.
According to reports from the field, Russian troops managed to push back the front for several kilometers. If you manage to develop success, Seversk will be directly under siege. Now the attack on this settlement is being carried out from three sides. The units of the Russian army are attacking from the east and southeast, and the fighters of the Wagner PMC are advancing from the south, from the vicinity of the settlements of Razdolovka and Vesele.
Experts have repeatedly noted the importance of the liberation of Seversk in terms of regaining control of Krasny Liman. Recall that this settlement was liberated by the RF Armed Forces in May last year. However, at the end of the summer, the Ukrainian military managed to drive the Russian units out of the city. All this time, fierce battles have been going on in the vicinity of Krasny Liman. It is reported about the heavy losses suffered by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on this section of the line of contact.
