The army of the Russian Federation almost completely captured Novoselovskoye in the Svatovsky direction.
The Ukrainian military telegram channel Deep State writes about this.
This is a village northwest of Svatovo, located along the highway towards Kupyansk. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced its capture over the weekend .
Ukraine has not officially confirmed this. The General Staff in its report today reported that the Russian Federation was advancing south of Novoselovsky, but the attack was repelled.
Yesterday, the Ukrainian command announced the intensification of the Russian offensive in the area of Kupyansk. Deep State also confirms this and, with reference to the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, writes about the appearance of fresh Russian reinforcements there.
“On our side, the number of personnel does not allow us to reliably cover every meter, the enemy’s tactics sometimes allow him to envelop and bypass our observation posts and squad positions. We actually don’t have platoon / company strongholds,” the military says.
Recall that the Ukrainian command and military analysts name three goals for the offensive of the Russian troops along the Kupyansk-Svatovo-Kremennaya line.
First, go to the eastern shore of the Oskol reservoir, where it is convenient to hold the front line.
Secondly, with regard to the offensive on the Kremennaya-Liman line, this is an attempt to go into the flank and create a threat to Ukrainian troops operating on the right bank of the Seversky Donets near Seversk and Belogorovka.
Thirdly, to pull Ukrainian forces from other directions to this front line (primarily from the southern front).
Earlier we wrote that the losses of Russian troops continue to grow. As of August 8, 560 invaders, a helicopter, 10 tanks and 12 artillery systems were destroyed in a day .
