Fierce battles continue on Kupiansk, Lyman, and Svativ fronts despite Russia's lack of advancement – Ukraine's deputy defense minister

The Russian invaders are unsuccessfully trying to advance in the direction of on the Kupiansk, Lyman and Svativ fronts.

Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar said this on the air of the national telethon.

"Now we feel the enemy's assaults the most on the Kupiansk and Lyman fronts, but they are also trying to attack the Svativ front as well. We are repelling enemy attacks there all day today.

It must be said that for the second day in a row, we have recorded an increase in shelling from the enemy on the Bakhmut front, and in fact, our defenders are under continuous artillery fire on all these fronts."

Also, Maliar notes that where the enemy is trying to conduct assaults (Kupiansk, Lyman, Svativ fronts), the enemy is not advancing, but very fierce battles continue.

As for the Bakhmut front, the Defense Forces are advancing in the southern direction; on the northern flank, the enemy is trying to regain their former positions, but, according to the Deputy Minister, they are not succeeding.

For reference:

Ukraine launched a major offensive on the southern front. The counteroffensive against Russian troops is gaining momentum.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces spokesman, Andrii Kovalev, reported that the soldiers of Ukraine's armed forces had success in the Staromayorske area on the southern front.

Ukrainian defenders managed to advance 500 meters along the front line.

In turn, the National Guardsmen succeeded in the offensive in the Melitopol direction. Currently, they are now ensconced on the boundaries they achieved.

Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar said that the Russians are accumulating troops on all fronts, trying with all their might to stop the offensive of Ukraine's armed forces.
