Russian troops are trying to capture Synkivka - Syrskyi
Russian forces intensify offensives in Kupyansk, Lyman, Siversk, and Bakhmut directions, says Ukrainian Ground Forces Commander Oleksandr Syrskyi
Commander Oleksandr Syrskyi of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reports ongoing aggressive actions by Russian occupiers in the Kupyansk, Lyman, Siversk, and Bakhmut areas.
In the Kupyansk direction, Russian forces relentlessly strive to capture Synkivka, aiming to block Kupyansk.
Furthermore, the enemy reinforces its efforts by shifting units from other directions, with over two thousand personnel in assault units.
In the Lyman direction, Russian troops have resumed intense offensives to push Ukrainian troops out of the Serebrianka Forestry area and extend the Torske salient.
Syrskyi added, "The enemy persists in its attempts to capture Terny and reach the Chornyi Zherebets River."
In the Siversk direction, the enemy attempts to advance in Spirne and Bilohorivka, training assault units among airborne troops for an offensive toward Soledar and Siversk.
In the Bakhmut direction, Russian forces are striving to seize Bohdanivka and regain lost ground in Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka, and Andriivka. They deploy assault groups from the "volunteer corps," relocated from the southern direction.
Syrskyi stated, "Our commanders at all levels are taking necessary measures to strengthen defense and halt enemy advances on all fronts."
- Analysts from the Institute for the Study of War suggest that the potential capture of Marinka may not result in a significant operational advance for the occupiers.
