Within the framework of repelling the military operation of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, there are currently four dangerous directions – the Crimean Isthmus, the environmental protection zone, the directions of Chernihiv and Kharkiv. This was announced by the adviser to the head of the Office of the President Oleksiy Arestovych at a briefing in the Office of the Head of State.
Currently, the most successful situation for the Ukrainian side in the area of environmental protection – all attacks are repulsed there, the line of defense is not broken. Despite the reports and statements of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Ukraine has maintained Happiness – there are many enemy armored vehicles, there are losses of manpower.
In addition, Russian troops, according to preliminary data, have crossed the isthmus with the Crimean peninsula and are developing an offensive in two directions, but are moving slowly.
“The first is in Melitopol, the second is in Kherson. They are now lined up in marching columns and preparing to move. There are our troops there, and they will resist, they will defend. Of course, I will not say the details of where they are located, but it will not be easy for them – we will stop them, “said an adviser to the head of the President’s Office.
Oleksiy Arestovych also noted that the invaders hang their flags on buildings to shoot and post propaganda videos, but the Armed Forces oppose them.
Separate advanced detachments of the Russian armed forces in the number of two or three tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, several dozen servicemen appeared on the Belarusian route. They try to enter Ukrainian territory, but meet resistance and withdraw.
“We can’t say that they are advancing, but the Armed Forces and other military formations are monitoring the situation,” he said.
The adviser to the head of the President’s Office also denied the report that the border in the Volyn direction had been breached: border guards were being fired on, but there was no breakthrough.
In the north of Chernihiv region, closer to the administrative border with Sumy region, the advance of enemy troops at a distance of 10-20 km was recorded.
“They are now, most likely, preparing, building battle formations, will try to advance further, but Kyiv is well protected, especially from the Chernihiv direction,” Oleksiy Arestovych stressed.
Also, according to him, the military of the Armed Forces and the National Guard continue to defend Kharkiv.
Adviser to the head of the President’s Office also said that there is no landing from the Black and Azov Seas, the Snake Island is held by Ukrainian border guards and the military.
“No serviceman of the Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies is inferior, everyone is at war, there is no surrender or escape,” he said.
According to Alexei Arestovich, there are even heroic stories, such as conscripts of the National Guard, 18-year-old soldiers who have not yet studied the general military battle, lined up four tanks of the Russian Federation.
He also noted that more than 40 servicemen have been killed so far, and several dozen have been injured, mostly due to air strikes this morning.
