Near Kharkiv, enemy units from the 6th army of the western military district, the coastal forces of the baltic navy, and the mobilization reserve of the 1st army corps pursue the tactics of keeping the lines taken earlier and preventing our forces from advancing toward the national border and into the rear of the formation of a russian force operating along the Slovyansk axis.

Oleksandr Motuzianyk, the spokesperson for Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, stated this during his briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“The foe is regrouping and reinforcing its troops to resume offensive toward Ternova and Rubizhne (25 to 30 km northeast of Kharkiv). The invaders undertake air reconnaissance near Peremoha, Bairak, Shestakove, Rubizhne, and Verkniy Saltiv to find out the positions of our forces,” Oleksandr Motuzianyk emphasized.

Near Kochubiivka, the Ukrainian soldiers neutralized the foe’s attempt at a probing action with accurate fire and repelled the foe to its earlier positions.
