We show the successes and failures that Vladimir Putin has had so far

It soon became clear that the Russians could not quickly occupy the highlighted areas, and the invasion units were now trying to bring the Donbass under their control – although Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said they would persevere, the defenders could not be broken.

Zelensky also spoke of the fact that no one knows how long the war will last, but at the same time he is proud that the advance of the Russians in the Donbass region bordering Russia has been halted.

In the Donetsk region, the enemy is concentrating its main forces on Severodonetsk and Bakhmut. In Liman’s direction, the enemy continued to cannon our units. The Russians want full control over the city of Severodonet, so they are constantly attacking it

Said the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, writes UNIAN news agency.

The General Staff also reported that the occupiers had carried out offensive operations in the direction of Bakhmut to cover the village of Vrubovka, but to no avail. When the Russians tried to continue the assault operations in the direction of Orekhovo-Zolote, the Ukrainian forces launched a counterattack, forcing the soldiers to retreat.

In the case of Avdijivka, Novopavlovsk and Zaporozhye, the enemy systematically fires our troops, thus preventing the possibility of counterattacks and redeployment

– read in the report, which also states that the occupiers of Yuzhnobugsky are constantly attracting the attention of the defenders with constant cannon shooting. The enemy caused fire damage in the municipalities of Osokorovka, Trudoljubovka, Sirokoje, Dobrjanka and Blagodatnoje

And British defense intelligence has released a map of the current state of the war, where the Russians are attacking, where their troops are stationed. The Russians are already in control of the red areas, with the red arrow showing the likely advance of the Russian troops and the blue arrow.

UNIAN has previously written that Ukrainian soldiers have successfully repulsed several hostile attacks in the Slavyansk district. The Ukrainian General Staff noted that the occupiers were also attacking civilian infrastructure.
