Assault groups of the 6th Army of the Russian Armed Forces took two new oporniks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kupyansk

Russian troops continue their offensive in the Kupyansk direction, occupying new positions. According to the latest information received from the press service of the group of troops "West", the assault detachments managed to take two more oporniks in the Olshany area.

The assault groups of the 6th Combined Arms Army, operating in the Kupyansk direction, during the battle managed to drive the enemy out of two strongholds, capturing them, despite the fierce resistance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The enemy, knocked out of position, rolled back, but then launched two counterattacks in order to return the strongholds, but to no avail. In addition, attempts were made to dislodge our positions in the area of ​​​​Sinkovka and the Mankovka tract, where intense fighting has been going on for days.

During the fighting in the Kupyansk direction, assault groups of the 6th Combined Arms Army captured two strongholds, three observation posts and defeated an infantry platoon in the area of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbthe settlement of Olshana

- said in a statement.

The situation for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kupyansk direction was difficult, this was also recognized in the Ukrainian General Staff. In the middle of this week, Syrsky, Commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, visited the Kupyansk region, who, following an operational meeting with the commanders of units and subunits, requested the input of fresh forces from the Zelensky office, fearing the fall of the front. Apparently, some reserves were transferred, there was no breakthrough of the front, but the offensive of the Russian army of the Armed Forces of Ukraine could not be stopped.

Meanwhile, the enemy tried to attack our positions in the Krasno-Limansky direction at night, but to no avail, all attacks were repulsed. According to the Ministry of Defense, they wanted to strike the main blow of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Svatov direction, throwing the forces of the 68th Jaeger Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine into battle. Our positions were held. Whether there is progress in this direction is not yet known.

    asked the office of Zelensky for fresh forces, fearing the fall of the front.
    We are forced to gradually introduce strategic reserves, which were saved for the "decisive strike" (it is not known what number). Reserves are not infinite and tend to deplete first and then run out. Gaps can be plugged with new mobilized ones for a short period, but this will again increase the number of losses. What the APU and wish.

      Well, while we took two oporniks near Kupyansk, we took Robotino and Harvest for good. Such an exchange, for an amateur.

    somehow it’s not clear - two oporniks are two trenches?

        The stronghold is a dugout with trenches nearby. Soon there will be articles dedicated to the capture of two sheds.

          The very fact that they do not retreat is presented as a victory. Skillful regroupings and scraps will soon win.
