UKRAINE, KHARKIV OBLAST, June 11 — The Russian army lost 64 people in the Kharkiv direction over the past day. The Russian army conducted four unsuccessful attacks near Vovchansk and Hlyboke in this direction, reported the General Staff in their morning briefing. 

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 was to stretch Ukrainian troops and resources and force Ukraine to redistribute manpower and military equipment along the frontline.  

The General Staff informs that Ukrainian troops destroyed one Russian tank, seven vehicles, and five special equipment units in the Kharkiv direction. They also damaged two tanks, an armored combat vehicle, three artillery systems, and four vehicles. The Ukrainian forces also destroyed 15 enemy dugouts and an ammunition depot.

According to the General Staff, in the Kupiansk direction, the Russian military tried to push Ukrainian troops from their positions near Synkivka, Stepova Novoselivka, Pishchane, and Berestove. They were not successful, and Ukrainian troops did not lose any positions or territories.

As Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his evening address on June 8, Russia failed to execute its Kharkiv operation, and Ukrainian troops continue to reinforce their positions there.
