Shortly, there will be good news from the Luhansk region because the Armed Forces of Ukraine, although not rapidly, are advancing hard and confidently in the direction of Svatove-Kreminna.

Rubryka reports, referring to the Telegram of the head of the Luhansk regional military administration, Serhii Haidai.

"We are moving forward little by little (in the direction of Svatove-Kreminna – ed.). However, the russians managed to bring a tremendous amount of equipment and personnel there:

And freshly mobilized people, convicts, Kadirovites, regular troops, and part of the paratroopers transferred from the Kherson direction.

Therefore, advancing is very difficult. There is no need to wait for a quick operation. But I am sure that shortly the General Staff will please us with good news," the head of the region emphasized.

Haidai also agreed with the statement that this winter would be essential to "solving" the Luhansk direction.

The head of the region believes that at the end of winter, Ukraine's armed forces will be able to go to the "border" of the area at least by February 24.

In addition, Haidai reported that the russian military was trying to wear down the Ukrainian defenders in the Luhansk region. According to him, "convicts" and mobilized people are thrown to the front lines.

Militants occupy almost all the houses around Svatove and Kreminna. He also confirmed that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are holding the defense in Bilohorivka.

On November 17, Haidai reported that fierce battles are ongoing in the Luhansk region in two directions: Svatove-Kreminna and Bilohorivka.

On November 23, the head of the region said that with the onset of frost, the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be able to give "new positive news" from the Luhansk region. In the direction of Svatov-Kreminna, the initiative is on the side of the Ukrainian military.

As Rubryka reported, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council hinted that winter would be the critical stage of the war. In the spring, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will enter Luhansk, Donetsk, and Sevastopol.

In addition, according to the General Staff, since the beginning of russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the russian army has lost a total of more than 93,000 soldiers, about 340 invaders in just one day.
