In the Luhansk region, the Ukrainian army destroyed the launch site of the Russian invaders' drones near the city of Svatove.

The head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, Artem Lysohor, reported this on Telegram.

"The war of drone operators as it is. Svatove-Kupiansk front. On our front, the place where the Russians launched drones was discovered and destroyed. The soldiers of the company of attack UAVs "Achilles" of the 92nd separate mechanized brigade did a good job," said the head of the region.

Lysohor specified that the fighters discovered the place from which the aggressors launched drones and effectively destroyed enemy positions thanks to the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3T drones provided by UNITED24 charitable foundation.

As Rubryka wrote, Ukraine's armed forces are advancing in their offensive operations toward the liberation of regions presently under the control of Russian troops along both the Bakhmut and Zaporizhzhia fronts. Despite the strength of the opposition in terms of artillery and air power, Ukrainian forces are progressing in their efforts.

In addition, British intelligence noted that over the past two weeks, Russia has increased combat sorties by tactical aircraft, especially over southern Ukraine. However, its activity is lower than at the beginning of a full-scale invasion.

Also, during the past week, due to offensive actions, the Defense Forces liberated seven settlements in the Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk regions from the Russian invaders.

It should be noted that during the past day, June 13, the Ukrainian army eliminated about 700 invaders; in general, since the beginning of the Russian aggression, the occupiers have lost more than 217,300 soldiers.
