The Russian occupiers recovered a little from the shock in the Kharkiv region and began to become more or less reasonable defense. This was stated by the adviser to the OP Alexei Arestovich.
«The new front line looms approximately along the Oskol River east of Izyum. We are pressing from Slavyansk to the north. Our task is to take Liman under control and then go to the Lugansk region on Svatovo or cut off Severodonetsk from supplies from the north & # 187;, & # 8212; writes Arestovich.
He noted that the Russians are preparing to defend Svatovo as a stronghold and road junction. Arestovich explained that if the Ukrainian military captured it, they would take control of a significant part of the Lugansk region and threaten the enemy from the north, moving south to Severodonetsk and Luhansk.
«The dynamics will be clear In the next few days. It will depend on the coordinated work of the military machine and good luck. We bite into the defense there, and if we manage to quickly take the Liman, then we go into the Luhansk region, for which the Russian military leaders signed several times. Claiming that Russia is there forever», — added adviser OP.
