The Russian occupiers are increasing the intensity of hostilities and expanding their operational areas, recognizing that the supply of weapons and military equipment from Ukraine’s partners will strengthen the capabilities of the Defense Forces.

This was stated by Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

«The enemy is well aware that as a result of the gradual receipt of a significant amount of weapons and military equipment from our partners, including the arrival of the first F-16s which will strengthen our air defense, time will play in our favor, and their chances of success will decrease.

Therefore, the command of the Russian troops is now making every effort to increase the intensity and expand the geography of hostilities to maximize the depletion of our troops, disrupt the training of reserves, and prevent the transition to active offensive actions», — he wrote on Facebook.

The Chief of Staff stated that he has been working on the Eastern Front for almost a week with various units holding the line in the most critical areas.

According to him, the nature of the enemy’s actions has not changed significantly. On the Kupyansk, Pokrovsk, Kurakhove, and Vremivsk operational directions, the enemy is conducting active offensive actions of varying intensity, trying to break through the defense of Ukrainian troops and capture important areas or settlements that affect the stability of the Defense Forces.

The invaders are focusing their main efforts on the Pokrovske direction, where the vast majority of their attack brigades and regiments are concentrated. Fierce fighting continues in the areas of Hlyboke, Chasovyi Yar, Staromayorsk, Robotyno, Krynky, and the islands in the coastal part of the left bank of the Dnipro River.
