In many ways, in the region, the initiative prevails on the side of the Ukrainian army, said Serhiy Cherevaty, spokesman for the Eastern Group of Forces.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to liberate 12 settlements in the Lugansk region. In addition, in many ways in the region, the initiative prevails on the side of the Ukrainian army. The speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces, Serhiy Cherevaty, spoke about this on the air of the telethon, RBC-Ukraine reports.
He noted that Russia, after its strategic failures in an attempt to capture Kyiv, defeats in the Kharkov region and near Kherson, is trying to win at the tactical level. In particular, the RF Armed Forces will again try to reach the administrative borders of the Luhansk region.
“They want to go to the administrative borders of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions. And, therefore, if they went to these borders, they would continue to want to seize the entire Zaporozhye region,” Cherevaty said.
The speaker of the group also added that Russian troops have large forces in the Donbas, but for more than 4 months they have not been able to break through the defenses of Bakhmut and Avdiivka.
“Of course, this requires the concentration of our efforts. Moreover, in the Lugansk region, the enemy is already being defeated. There are already 12 settlements under the Ukrainian flag. And in many ways, the initiative is ours there,” he said.
Recall, on November 19, it was reported that the RF Armed Forces transferred the remnants of their best troops from the Kherson direction to the Luhansk region. However, most of the occupiers in the region are inexperienced mobilized, they die in the hundreds or surrender.
On November 13, it became known that the Ukrainian military had liberated the village of Makeyevka in the Luhansk region. The settlement was completely destroyed, and the broken equipment of the Russian military remained on the roadsides.
