Russia boosts forces in Kupyansk direction — Ukrainian fighter
Russia is building up forces and creating new armies in the Kupyansk direction. Russian forces are replenishing personnel in units that suffered heavy losses
Major Nadiia Zamryha, Head of Public Relations of the 14th separate mechanized brigade named after Prince Roman the Great, reported the information on Espreso TV.
"The occupiers are building up their forces in this area, creating new armies and forming units. It is possible that they are replenishing their stocks of equipment," noted Zamryha.
The situation is stabilized as of today, but Russia does not abandon its intentions to advance, said the major.
"Kupyansk direction has been attracting attention of the whole Ukraine in recent weeks and months. The situation periodically escalates, and then we manage to stabilize it with considerable efforts. The enemy does not abandon its intentions to storm, go on the offensive and continue what it has failed to do. They will not abandon what they want to do, but we will see if they succeed," summarized Zamryha.
Russia is rotating its troops in the Kupyansk direction
In particular, Ivan Tymochko, head of the Council of Reservists of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, said on the United News telethon that Russia is rotating its troops in the Kupyansk direction because of fears of a repeat offensive by the Ukrainian army.
According to him, those airborne brigades of the Russian army that arrived in the south with the expectation of stopping the advance of the Ukrainian army and, if possible, launching a counteroffensive, did not justify themselves.
"Any offensive for the Russians means huge human losses, because their love of attacking with a wide front and dense infantry ranks leads to human losses. Therefore, they are now forced to conduct certain rotational actions there. This is the second time. Part of the troops were sent to the south, because the south is vital for them. They are trying their best to stop the advance of the Ukrainian Armed Forces there before the rains begin, hoping that this will stop our army in the fields," Tymochko said.
Roman Pohorilyi, co-founder of DeepState, reported that there has been an increase in shelling in the Lyman-Kupyansk direction. Russian forces appear to be consolidating and selecting a new point of attack.
On September 30, the head of the press service of the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Illya Yevlash, said that the Russian army had resumed assaults in the Lyman-Kupyansk direction, but had no success and suffered losses.
