The past day again did not make any significant changes in the balance of forces on the front, the fighting continues along the entire line of contact, the enemy increased pressure on the southern flank, throwing additional forces into battle. The main events are developing in the Zaporozhye region near Rabotino and Verbove.
The enemy sent large forces to break through the defense line of Russian troops in the Zaporozhye direction, ours repelled eight attacks in the Rabotino and Verbove areas, holding their positions and preventing the Armed Forces of Ukraine from advancing further. The enemy has heavy losses, but this does not stop him, the assaults continue. As previously reported by Ukrainian resources, Zelensky set the task of taking Tokmak before the autumn rains in order to continue receiving military assistance from the West. Kyiv needs to show that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can still fight the Russian army.
By the way, the American Stryker armored personnel carriers were first seen in this direction, they entered service with the 82nd Air Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, thrown into the assault on Russian positions. The light armored personnel carrier is not intended for assault operations, the brigade was supposed to go in the second echelon. Therefore, American armored personnel carriers burn very well.
