Military expert tells when Russian forces plan to intensify offensives near Kupyansk and Lyman

Director of the Center for Military Legal Studies Oleksandr Musienko noted that the Russian troops regrouped and replenished reserves in the Kupyansk direction and near Lyman

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"In the Kupyansk direction and near Lyman, the enemy regrouped and replenished its forces. They have created additional assault companies. The number of people in these assault companies is about 160. Russia plans to use these companies with the support of equipment. Near Lyman, they planned to launch an offensive on January 5, i.e. today. The offensive near Kupyansk may take place on January 10 or 15," explained Musienko.

According to the director of the Center for Military Legal Studies, weather conditions changed, and the Russian army could not attack in the Kupyansk direction at all.

"Before that, the Russians were forced to redeploy their troops to the Avdiivka area, where they suffered heavy losses. This slowed down their offensive near Kupyansk. At times, the Russian troops intensified their offensive activity, but our Defense Forces repelled them. It is likely that they will resume offensive actions in the area of Synkivka," noted Musienko.

  • According to the American Institute for the Study of War, on December 31, Ukrainian forces advanced southeast of Kupyansk and continued positional fighting with Russian troops along the Kupyansk-Svatove-Kreminna line.
  • Ukrainian defense forces eliminated 790 Russian militants, destroyed 30 artillery systems and 14 armored combat vehicles over the past day, January 4.
  • Major Nadiia Zamryha, head of the public relations service of the 14th separate mechanized brigade named after Prince Roman the Great, said that Russia is not sparing its human resources in the Kupyansk sector.
