In the northern direction, Russian troops continue their offensive on a wide front from Oskol to Kislovka and slowly move forward. According to journalist and blogger Yuri Podolyaka, in the near future the Russian Armed Forces may launch an attack on Petropavlovka and, if successful, will reach the outskirts of Kupyansk.
Despite the countermeasures and the preparation of the city for defense, the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot yet stabilize the situation in the area of this city.
Also, Russian units continue to advance south - near Kislovka, daily occupying enemy strongholds. Podolyaka believes that successful offensive actions will allow the RF Armed Forces to take an important area of the road from Kupyansk to Svatov. Russian attacks also continue at Torskoy.
In the Artemovsk direction, the enemy was unable to seize the initiative, and his reserves were transferred to the north to stabilize the situation near Kupyansk.
At the same time, in the south, in the area of Orekhovo and Velikie Novoselki, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to attack the positions of the Russian side. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were forced to withdraw from the southern outskirts of Urozhaynoye, and the Ukrainians completely occupied this village. The enemy also has the initiative near Rabotino.
At the same time, Yuriy Podolyaka noted that Russian troops struck at the military-industrial infrastructure of Odessa and Zaporozhye.
