Russian attacks on Kharkiv intensified

Russian attacks on Kharkiv intensified

Russia continued its offensive in eastern and southern Ukraine with unlimited force, attacking the city of Kharkiv in particular. Violent explosions were heard on Saturday night.

“Deficiencies in tactical coordination remain,” the British military wrote on Twitter about the situation in northeastern Ukraine. Due to weak units and insufficient air support, Russia cannot fully exploit its combat capabilities.

Selenskyj: Strategic successes achieved

According to the Ukrainian armed forces, they recaptured the “strategically important” village of Ruska Luswa near Kharkiv. According to the Kyiv Ministry of Defense, Ukrainian soldiers have transported more than 600 residents to safety.

“The situation in the Kharkiv region is difficult,” Zelensky said in a televised speech. But our army and our intelligence made significant tactical gains.” Zelensky accused the Russian army of wanting to “destroy all life” during its offensive in Donbass. Constant attacks on infrastructure and residential areas showed “that Russia wants to make this area uninhabitable.”

Russian forces have already captured a number of villages in the Donbass region. But the Ukrainian armed forces have also recorded minor successes. A senior NATO official said Russia had made “slight” and “irregular” progress in trying to encircle enemy positions while Ukrainian forces launched a counterattack.

US: Russia’s attack ‘overdue’

In addition, Ukraine appears to be putting some pokes at its dominant neighbor. It is said that Russian anti-aircraft defenses prevented a Ukrainian plane from entering the airspace of the Bryansk region. Russian media reported that parts of an oil station were bombed. “There were no casualties,” Governor Alexandre Bogomas said. A logistics building at the station was damaged. The information cannot be independently verified.

Meanwhile, a senior US Defense Department official said the Russian offensive in eastern Ukraine was “overdue”. The Russian armed forces are “far from establishing a link between the forces that have advanced through the Kharkiv region in the north of the Donbass and forces from the south of the country.” The Pentagon representative added that it can be assumed that “they will continue to create the conditions for a sustained, larger and longer attack.”
