The RF Armed Forces have accumulated reserves, equipment and ammunition in the Luhansk region. The Ukrainian Defense Forces, with precise strikes on the rear, cut the enemy’s logistics and the number of shelling is decreasing, the head of the Lugansk OVA said.
The Russian invaders recently transferred the latest T-90 tanks near Kremennaya, Luhansk region, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed almost all the vehicles in two weeks. This was told on March 12 on the air of the Espreso channel by the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration (OVA) Serhiy Gaidai.
“I can say that even the newest T-90 tanks were thrown at Kremennaya, and in two weeks they are already switching to the T-72,” the head of the OVA said.
The enemy conducts offensives daily in the directions “Svatovo-Kupyansk”, “Kremennaya-Liman” and in Belogorovka, but at the moment the situation remains unchanged.
According to Gaidai, the Russian Armed Forces have accumulated reserves, equipment and ammunition, but the Ukrainian Defense Forces are gradually destroying all this. Precise strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the rear of the enemy have a strong influence.
“They have constant attempts to push through our defenses, but everything remains stable. Our defenders are holding firm there,” the head of the OVA added.
From time to time, warehouses of Russians with ammunition explode on the territory of the temporarily occupied Luhansk region, the logistical capabilities of the Russian army break down and the number of shelling decreases, Gaidai noted.
