Ukrainian flag raised above 12 settlements in Luhansk region

Twelve settlements have already been liberated from Russian invaders in the Luhansk region.

The relevant statement was made by Spokesperson for the Eastern Grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhii Cherevatyi during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Having large forces on the eastern front, in the Donbas, Russians had been unable to break the defense even near Bakhmut and Avdiivka for over four months. Of course, this requires us to concentrate efforts. Moreover, the enemy is already losing in the Luhansk region. Twelve settlements are now under the Ukrainian flag. In many ways, the initiative is ours there,” Cherevatyi told.

In his words, after defeats in several directions and the failure of strategic plans, Russia wants to win at least somewhere.

“After the enemy’s strategic plans failed, they were unable to seize Kyiv, suffered defeats in the Kharkiv, Lyman and Kherson directions, all that remains is to achieve some tactical victories. Since during the war and even before one of Russian propagandist narratives was the ‘liberation of the people of Donbas’, who had been unknown to anyone before, it is clear that they want to reach the administrative borders of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Hence, if they reached these borders, they would want to capture the entire Zaporizhzhia region,” Cherevatyi noted.

A reminder that Spokesperson for the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yurii Ihnat stated earlier that, through massive missile attacks, Russians wanted to make Ukraine negotiate on their terms.
