It was the Oskil River that Russian forces sought to incorporate into their defense line after the Ukrainians pushed them out of much of Kharkiv Oblast this month.
“The situation on the battlefield remains complex, but Ukraine is now putting pressure on territory that Russia considers essential to meeting its war aims,” the British ministry said.
The command of the Ukrainian army then announced that Ukrainian forces had repelled enemy attacks in the vicinity of eight municipalities, naming towns mostly in the Donetsk region, including Avdijivka. The Ukrainians also managed to destroy a Russian Mi-8 helicopter, according to the report of the Army General Staff.
A railway junction in the town of Jasynuvata was also targeted. According to the Nexta news channel, a train carrying Russian T-62 tanks, which had just arrived there, was hit.
A train full of t-62 tanks rolled up to the train station in Yasinovataya, next to Donetsk city, and then moments later the station exploded. https://t.co/fLGngd1Rok
