War in Ukraine Day 443: Ukrainian Army Hits Russian Oil Depot in Luhansk Region
Ukrainian forces have carried out a targeted attack on a Russian oil depot in the Luhansk region, marking a significant development in the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
The assault resulted in severe damage to the Russian Army and caused violent explosions within the oil depot.
Simultaneously, Ukrainian troops launched a raid on Russian positions.
The intense conflict during the raid led to the capture of the Russian positions by Ukrainian forces, resulting in the elimination of several Russian soldiers.
Today, a crucial statement was made by Ukraine’s deputy defense minister, amidst one of the most intense periods in the Russia-Ukraine war.
The deputy defense minister revealed that Kiev forces had advanced approximately 2 kilometers near Bakhmut, which is the epicenter of the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
According to the deputy minister, “The enemy suffered heavy losses.
It can be said that our defense advanced two kilometers near Bakhmut.
We haven’t lost any positions at Bakhmut this week.”
The Ukrainian Army’s successful advances and acquisition of psychological superiority may prompt them to intensify their counterattack in Bakhmut in the days to come, with the objective of gaining full control of the area.
In response to the Ukrainian offensive, some Russian soldiers have withdrawn from the Bakhmut area, where desperate moments were experienced.
The leader of the Wagner group, Prigozhin, confirmed the withdrawal of Russian soldiers in a statement.
The next moves of both Russia and Ukraine in the strategically significant Bakhmut settlement remain uncertain.
The Russian Army, having suffered significant losses, may choose to completely withdraw from Bakhmut or escalate its attacks in an attempt to regain control.
On the other hand, the Ukrainian Army may capitalize on the ammunition shortage and demoralization of Russian soldiers to launch a massive counterattack.
