Zaluzhny: The front line today is 2450 km

The front line today is 2450 km long. Active hostilities are being conducted at 1,105 km, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny said in a conversation with the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley.

– The enemy has concentrated its main efforts in the north of the Lugansk region. He massively uses artillery and, unfortunately, has a tenfold fire advantage. But, in spite of everything, we continue to hold positions. Every meter of Ukrainian land there is watered with blood, but not only ours, but also the occupier’s,” Zaluzhny said.

According to him, the situation in the city of Severodonetsk is difficult, where the enemy has transferred 7 battalion tactical groups.


– Despite heavy fire, we managed to stop the enemy. Experiencing setbacks in the Luhansk direction, the Russian occupation troops resumed shelling of residential areas of Kharkov, which requires adequate action from us. The armed forces of the Russian Federation continue to fire artillery and mortars at units of our defense forces in the Chernihiv and Sumy regions. We are returning fire. We have switched to counter-offensive actions in some areas, – said the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

He asked General Milli to help Ukraine get more 155-mm artillery systems as soon as possible. He also spoke about the “strategic goals of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”.

In addition, during the conversation, the generals “exchanged views on the transfer and use of weapons already provided, drew analogies with lend-lease during the Second World War and discussed scenarios for the further development of the situation.”
