The military of the Russian Federation wanted to advance into the Donetsk region, to cut the Bakhmut-Lysichansk highway passing through Belogorovka, but they failed.
The Ukrainian military is holding back Russian troops on the border of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions. The invaders failed to advance to the Donetsk region and cut the Bakhmut-Lysichansk road. About it declared head of the Lugansk OVA Serhiy Gaidai.
“We are holding back the enemy on the border of the Lugansk region and the Donetsk region – the occupiers suffer significant losses, which they themselves admit. Every day the Russians receive an order to move on, they do not always carry it out, because the losses in personnel are very significant. Both the prisoners and those who communicates with the population in Lisichansk and Severodonetsk.Only during the assault on Lisichansk, the enemy has thousands of dead and wounded.Yes, they have an order of magnitude more forces and means, but the Ukrainian army is better prepared and motivated.There will be more long-range weapons – the advantage of the enemy in personnel will be leveled,” he said.
According to Gaidai, on July 5, the Russian military wanted to advance into the Donetsk region, cut the Bakhmut-Lysichansk highway passing through Belogorivka, but they failed.
“Gradually, the untimely delivery of ammunition comes back to haunt the occupier – thanks to the accuracy of our fighters, who over the past two weeks have destroyed several warehouses in the occupied territory. One of them was on fire the other day in Kadiyivka,” the head of the Lugansk OVA said.
Recall that the Armed Forces of Ukraine stopped the enemy offensive near Seversk, in the area of Disputed, not far from Vershina, as well as in the area of Bakhmut and Slavyansk.
