“They are constantly firing all types of heavy weapons at Bilohorivka and Zolotarivka. Tube and rocket artillery are used. They [Russians] hitting houses, every building they see as a possible fortification. In order to advance, they do not count their losses and do not feel sorry for the inhabitants of the region,” the head of the Luhansk regional military administration, Serhiy Haidai, said on Facebook.

The situation is similar in the localities of the Donetsk region neighboring the Luhansk region.

I would like to point out that our troops withdrew from Lysychansk from centrally. Even those fighters, who covered the retreat, inflicted significant losses on the Russians, “said the head of the Luhansk region.
