On November 28, Russian forces continued localized offensives along the Kupyansk-Svatove-Kreminna line, achieving confirmed successes, as stated in the report.
Geolocation footage from November 27 and 28 indicates Russian troops advancing north of Synkivka and west of Pershotravneve.
Contrary to this, the General Staff of the Armed Forces reported that Ukrainian forces, in the Kupyansk direction, repelled over four Russian attacks near Synkivka and Petropavlivka, and more than 12 attacks near Stelmakhivka, Yampolivka, Terny, Torske, and Serebryanka Forestry in the Lyman direction.

Simultaneously, the AFU continued ground attacks south of Bakhmut, with no confirmed or asserted advancements. The Russian Ministry of Defense asserted that occupation forces repelled Ukrainian attacks near Klishchiivka and toward Chasiv Yar.
