The armed forces of Ukraine are

gradually moving forward in the Luhansk region.

Instead, the Russian occupiers are rapidly building a multi-layered defense line.

This was announced by the head of the Luhansk region, Serhiy Gaidai, during a telethon.

He emphasized that there are prospects and plans for a counteroffensive.

However, "until they are opened." 

"The military is doing its job clearly, according to the plan. You know, the Ukrainian plan and the Russian plan are completely different things. The Russian plan is something that happened by chance. The Armed Forces are really achieving their goal. Seven populated areas have been liberated today. We are moving forward little by little. But we will not talk about further actions," Gaidai emphasized.

According to him, the Russians are building defensive structures in various cities of the occupied region, as well as mining the "first section of the front line."

It is not only about bridges and roads, but about administrative buildings.

De-occupation of Luhansk region

 The armed forces of Ukraine continue to liberate settlements in the Luhansk region from the occupiers. 

It is officially known about the liberation of seven settlements 

in the region.

We are talking about villages in the Swativ district. 

Meanwhile, the

Russians are trying to somehow slow down the offensive of the Armed Forces


The occupiers are preparing to retreat, and therefore continue to mine the territories.

The Russians are preparing to defend themselves in Kreminnaya and Svatovo.
