He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"The enemy is trying to use every opportunity to advance into Chasiv Yar head-on, from the flanks, but the situation there has more or less stabilised. The enemy is regrouping, bringing in new forces, and constantly shelling the city from the air. The Russian assault groups are trying to amass infantry in some areas and advance. So this dynamic is happening all the time. But the fighters who hold Chasiv Yar and the new brigades that have arrived there have stabilised the situation," Pohorilyi said.

According to him, the only dynamics taking place in the area now are attempts to probe.

"The enemy is trying to find weaknesses somewhere, to saturate the area with personnel, to pull up reserves. Therefore, the situation can change at any time, because the enemy is unpredictable in the use of its forces and in its advance," he added.

  • On April 27, the US Institute of War reported that Russian forces continue offensive operations in the area of Chasovyi Yar, Donetsk region. The enemy may try to bypass the city and create conditions for an operational encirclement.
  • Military journalist Andriy Tsapliyenko said that Ukraine had deployed soldiers of the Main Intelligence Directorate to Chasovyi Yar in Donetsk region to defend the town.
  • On April 29, Toomas Väli, deputy head of the operational department of the Estonian Defence Forces General Staff, expressed his belief that the Russians would not be able to achieve their goal of capturing the town of Chasiv Yar in Donetsk region by May 9.
