Achilles Battalion commander Yuriy Fedorenko says that the Ukrainian forces have a tactical initiative in the battles in the Kharkiv region and can develop it into a tactical success

He told this on Espreso TV.

"The Russian army is constantly conducting reverse attack and assault operations in the Kharkiv region. The main goal is to drive the Defense Forces out of the positions they have managed to recapture. The enemy is using all available weapons. In particular, attack drones, artillery and aircraft. The invaders are attacking the positions of Ukrainian defenders and all settlements on the border. Enemy aircraft are constantly using UAVs of various weights. The Russians are quite consciously attacking civilian targets with their KABs," said Fedorenko.

According to the serviceman, the Defense Forces have the prospect of tactical success in the battles in the Kharkiv region.

"I think the issue of enemy aircraft will be resolved in the near future. We have recently been authorized to use high-precision weapons on the territory of the Russian Federation. This has made significant changes to Russia's plans and actions. As a result, the occupiers are forced to move their forces and assets a little further away from the state border of Ukraine. However, one way or another, we reach them there as well. That is why the logistics of the Russian occupation forces to attack across the Ukrainian border has become longer. The longer the logistics are, the more we can detect and damage their assets and forces. Accordingly, there are all the prospects not only to say that the Defense Forces have seized the tactical initiative in the Kharkiv region, but also can have a tactical success on the battlefield," he added.

  • On July 2, the spokesman for the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, Andriy Demchenko, said that it cannot be ruled out that at any moment, even despite the insufficient number of forces, the Russian troops will try to expand bridgeheads with active combat zones in the Kharkiv region.
