Russian offensive on Kharkiv is unlikely now - Ground Forces spokesman
Invading Russian army hasn’t made significant progress in the Kupyansk sector, and its new attack on Kharkiv is unlikely at this time
Spokesman for the Ukrainian Ground Forces Volodymyr Fitio said this, Ukrinform reports.
According to him, the Ukrainian servicemen are on the defensive, trying to improve their tactical position and moving to offensive actions.
"Foreign media reports that there will be an offensive do not sound any alarm bells for Kharkiv residents at this time," the spokesman assured.
Fitio also noted that the number of Russian troops on the territories bordering Ukraine and their number on the Kupyansk direction is not changing.
- The Telegraph, citing its own sources, reported that on January 15, the Russian forces may launch a second offensive on Kharkiv. On January 5, the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, said that no concentrations of Russian military units capable of attacking Kharkiv have been recorded near the border with Ukraine.
