"The Russians are trying to counterattack in Kreminna direction but have no success. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are moving forward," Serhiy Haidai, Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, posted on Telegram.
Stelmakhivka, Makiivka, and Chervonopopivka settlements are under enemy fire, he added.
"It is from these directions that Russian troops are trying to counterattack the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but our defense forces repel all offensives and attacks," he wrote.
As reported, the enemy redeploys paratroopers and heavy equipment to Kreminna, but still falters in this direction of the front.
