The Russian army again tried to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the northeast of Kupyansk.
In the Slobozhansk direction, the operational situation of the past day remained without significant changes. The enemy is leaving units near the state border of Ukraine, but no offensive groups have been detected. In addition, the occupiers continue to equip positions in the border areas of the Belgorod region and shell villages and settlements in Kharkiv district and Vovchan community.
“During the day, the occupiers shelled the areas of the Volfine settlements of the Sumy region and Strelecha, Mali Prohody, Krasne, Velikiy Burluk and Bologivka of the Kharkiv region,” the General Staff reported.
In the Kupyansk direction, the enemy tried to break through the defense of our troops in the area of the settlement. According to official information, the occupiers carried out artillery shelling of the areas of Dvorichna, Zapadne, Masyutivka, Kupyansk, Krokhmalne, Pischane and Cherneshchyna settlements.
Military observer Kostyantyn Mashovets notes that the occupiers are considering the possibility of active offensive operations in the Kupyansk direction. This is evidenced by several attempts of the DRG event right here.
“During March 4th and 6th, subversive and reconnaissance groups of this detachment made at least two attempts to cross the state border of Ukraine in this direction (Budarky village district and Zelene village district, respectively) and infiltrate the territory of Ukraine itself. Both attempts ended unsuccessfully for the enemy, his DRG, after detecting and inflicting fire damage on them, were forced to return to the territory of the Russian Federation. It is obvious that the personnel of this unit is engaged by the enemy’s command to conduct active reconnaissance and sabotage activities in this direction in order to determine the most vulnerable areas in the SOU defense system , its features and the identification of the operative construction of forces and means of the SOU, deployed in this operational area,” Mashovets writes.
