Russian army shelled 16 localities in the Kupyansk direction within the last two days.

The adversary has reduced its offensive actions during this time. This is due to the heavy losses caused by Ukrainian defenders. This was reported on the national marathon “United News” by the head of the Kharkiv regional military administration Oleh Syniehubov.

“During the last two days, 16 settlements were shelled in the Kupyansk direction. The front line is still there, the adversary has somewhat reduced its offensive assault actions, but this is due only to the fact that it suffers heavy losses there and is forced to retreat for recovery and rotation of its assault units,” Kharkiv RMA head said.

Also, according to Syniehubov, the Russian army has not left its ideas for the occupation of Kharkiv region and the Armed Forces are ready to counteract this.
