Russians have reduced their activity in Kharkiv region, but continue to regroup - Syniehubov

In Kharkiv region, Russians have reduced their activity, but continue to regroup and make attempts to move deeper into the region.

The head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, said this on the air of the United News telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"Despite the relative decrease in activity on the front line, the Russians continue to regroup and attempt to advance deeper into the region. Vovchansk - there is fighting. Sinkivka and Andriivka are under constant assault. Shelling does not stop either," he said.

Syniehubov also noted that Russians have once again destroyed a civilian transport crossing in Staryi Saltov. Now it is being restored again.
