The Russian Armed Forces attacked positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the right bank of the Oskol River near Kupyansk, and also disrupted the enemy’s rotation in the Krasnolimansky direction
The Ukrainian command on the eve tried to withdraw from the battle one of the units, which suffered losses in the amount of more than 60 percent of its personnel, from the Krasnolimansky direction, where the advance of Russian troops continues. A reserve unit was prepared, which was supposed to enter the advanced positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as part of the rotation.
Russian intelligence with the help drones established the place from which the reserve was going to move to the front line, and transmitted the coordinates to the artillery crews.
