Two days ago, the Russian military began an active phase of the offensive in the Kupyansk sector and used poisonous gases.

On October 29, the Russian army used chemical weapons, including gases, in Kharkiv Oblast. This was reported by Denys Yaroslavskyi, commander of the Ukrainian Armed Forces intelligence unit, during the United telethon.

“Since last night, they have been using mass destruction means, such as gases. The fighters have difficulty breathing, burns and dizziness are recorded. We are informed when the enemy fired a shot from this type of weapon. Everything they say cannot be used is used by the occupants,” emphasized Denys Yaroslavskyi.


General Staff: UA armed forces repelled 13 Russian attacks in Kharkiv Oblast. However, in Siverskyi and Slobozhanskyi directions, Russians maintain their military presence, conduct diversions, and hold the Ukrainian army in the district, not allowing them to relocate to more threatening directions of the frontline. They also keep increasing mine-explosive barriers along the border in Belgorod Oblast.
