Russia may soon attempt to attack Kupyansk
Kharkiv City Council member Oleh Abramychev has commented on the situation in the Lyman-Kupyansk area, noting that the Russian army may try to attack Kupyansk in the near future
He said this on Espreso TV.
"Today, it is more or less calm, although the enemy tried to launch an attack there the day before yesterday, but our soldiers immediately repelled it. It's quiet for now, but they are actually constantly bringing manpower and equipment there. I think that at some point they will want to move forward again, to attack Kupyansk," he noted.
However, Abramychev emphasized that all Ukrainian forces are ready for this, so he believes that the Russian army will not succeed.
"We can see that they are terrorizing the city and the region with missiles, although there was a lull, but now they have intensified. I think this is a fresh batch of missiles produced specifically for the Kharkiv region, and they are firing them," he commented.
Roman Pohorilyi, co-founder of DeepState, said that shelling has intensified in the Lyman-Kupyansk direction. The Russians are now gaining a new fist, choosing a point of attack.
On September 30, the head of the press service of the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Ilia Yevlash, said that the Russian army had resumed assaults on the Lyman-Kupyansk front, but had no success and suffered losses.
On October 5, the Russian army attacked a cafe in the village of Hroza, Kupyansk district, killing 52 people. The Security Service of Ukraine is looking for the person who adjusted fire.
On October 9, the Russian military in the Lyman-Kupyansk area were trying to compensate for the lack of artillery and build up their forces.
