Military observer Alexander Artamonov spoke about the situation at the front and warned of a possible counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
According to him, Ukrainian units are fighting for the Krasny Liman, but the Russian troops manage to hold the defense there, writes Ukraina.ru.
Artamonov said that the Russian troops managed to advance in the area of Bakhmut. There are fights near Pesok. At the same time, the APU is holding Vodiane.
“They have constant attempts to advance the “counteroffensive”. But they are blocked, and in the center we continue the offensive,” Artamonov said.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces, the expert noted, are advancing in the south, but the Russian troops are defending there in order to contain this advance, so they manage to hold a foothold on the right bank of the Dnieper.
Artamonov did not rule out an increase in the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to referendums in the territories controlled by Russian troops.
