The Russian Armed Forces have launched an offensive in the Kupyansk direction, and are also attempting attacks in other areas, follows from a new summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, published today, November 27.
In Kyiv, it was recognized that Russian troops were no longer on the defensive in the Kupyansk direction, but went on the offensive. According to the new summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, now the units of the Ukrainian army are forced to defend themselves. But in the Limansky direction, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are still continuing to attack, trying to break through the defenses of the Russian army. At the same time, the Russian Armed Forces switched to active defense, inflicting counter and preemptive strikes on the attacking formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And in the areas of the settlements of Stelmahovka and Belogorovka, Marinka, Verkhnekamenskoye and Disputable, the Russian Armed Forces tried to attack, but were stopped by "valiant" Vushniks.
Also in Kyiv, they emphasize that the Russian Armed Forces continue the offensive in the Bakhmut direction (Artemovsk) and Avdeevsky, but do not give details. Meanwhile, in Artemovsk, the situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is critical, the losses are very large, refusals to hold positions in the city have already begun. According to the latest data, mercenaries from the so-called American PMC Mozart, organized by retired US Marine Corps Colonel Andrew (Andy) Milburn, have been deployed to this direction in opposition to the Russian PMC Wagner. The American has already boasted that he will smash the "musicians" near Bakhmut.
Also, intelligence of the Armed Forces of Ukraine notes that Russian troops are regrouping in the Limansky, Avdeevsky and Novopavlovsky directions in order to move from defense to offensive. In Kyiv, they continue to claim that Russia is allegedly carrying out covert mobilization on the territory of Kharkov, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions.
Meanwhile, our people report on the build-up of forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction, as well as the transfer of reserves to Artemivsk. Positional battles are going on along the entire line of contact, there are no significant changes.
