Ukrainian Armed Forces: The enemy is preparing a counteroffensive in the Luhansk direction, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are actively counteracting

The occupiers are preparing a counteroffensive in the Luhansk direction, but the Ukrainian Defense Forces are aware of this and are actively counteracting, said Serhiy Cherevaty, a representative of the Eastern Group of Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, on the air of the telethon.

«In the Luhansk direction, of which Kupyanskoe is also an element, they are preparing a counter-offensive operation, but we know about it, we monitor their actions and actively counteract this – in the Svatovo region and other areas where they are trying to counterattack», – said Cherevaty.

The speaker of the Eastern Group of Forces stressed that the situation is complicated, but controlled, and it differs significantly from the situation in the Avdeevsky and Bakhmut directions, where the Russians have long concentrated «a huge number» of their forces and means, conduct dozens of assaults every day, using all types of cannon artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, aviation – assault, army, Ka-52 attack helicopters.

«And there ( in the Luhansk direction – ed.) they, let's say, only have the intention to do something, and we know what they want to do, and we are already actively opposing it», he said.

Cherevaty also spoke about the impact of weather conditions on the fighting in the Bakhmutsky and Avdeevsky directions – now the Russians began to storm mainly in small groups, especially the «Wagnerites».

According to him, PMC mercenaries break up into small assault groups and, after an artillery raid, try to infiltrate the forward positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in order to engage in close combat.

«We are also observing this, in particular, using unmanned vehicles, and strike – both on distant approaches, and when they are already closer to the trench, directly from small arms, grenade launchers and machine guns», Cherevaty said.
