War correspondent Oleksandr Kots spoke about the battles south of Izyum, Kharkiv region, where Ukrainian units are trying to break through.
According to the journalist, on September 7, a group of 30 mercenaries advanced to Russian positions, which was quickly discovered and “smashed to pieces.”
On the morning of September 8, more significant forces went in the direction of Izyum – six tanks, more than ten armored personnel carriers and several hundred infantry, the military correspondent writes on the Telegram channel. According to Kots, the artillery worked well against the advancing units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but the Russian formations had to withdraw.
Earlier it became known about sending significant reserves of the RF Armed Forces to the Kharkov direction. Reinforcements are deployed both on the ground and by Mi-26 transport helicopters.
