Russian troops are firing artillery at Ukrainian units that are advancing in the Kharkiv region. Russian Spring writes about this, publishing footage taken by the Ukrainian military themselves. Judging by the video, they were moving across the fields on BMPs, despite the fact that Russian troops were firing at them.
A video is also circulating on the Web, in which the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already occupied Verbovka. This is a suburb of Balakleya, and the day before, the Russian troops left it, occupying the second line of defense. The Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to online media, are already fighting on the outskirts of Balakliya.
Russkaya Vesna also reports that the Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to shoot down the Su-25 attack aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces from MANPADS, which worked in pairs against the advancing Ukrainian troops.
The information about the encirclement of Russian paratroopers also causes concern, although the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not officially confirm it.
