On May 10, Russia launched a new ground offensive north and northeast of the Kharkiv region, in the Vovchansk and Lyptsi directions. Russia’s primary goal in a new offensive would be to stretch Ukrainian troops and resources and force Ukraine to redistribute manpower and military equipment along the frontline.  

As the General Staff reported, the Russian army was trying to advance in the Kupiansk direction, and there were no assaults on the Kharkiv axis.

Russian troops plan to advance in the Kupiansk direction to the positions of Druzheliubivka and Petropavlivka. The General Staff informs that the Ukrainian military repelled three Russian attacks.

After visiting combat zones in the Kupiansk and Kharkiv directions, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksandr Syrskyi said that the overall situation on the frontline remains complicated due to the high-intensity combat and the Russians’ extensive use of armored vehicles and guided aerial bombs.
