The Russian army is gathering its main goal is to capture Kupyansk.

Ilya Yevlash, speaker of the OSUV Khortitsa, stated this during the telethon.

According to Ilya Yevlash, the situation in the Kupyansk direction remains difficult. There the enemy attracts heavy equipment and increases the number of personnel without sparing them. The Russian Army is also strengthening the border and strengthening reserves with units of the Russian Guard near Kupyansk.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces, in turn, actively use FPV drones, destroying up to 60% of enemy equipment during attacks, the speaker notes.

“We occupied quite powerful fortifications, built a defense line on Limano-Kup near Kupyansk, a lot of engineering structures have been equipped,” said Yevlash.

The situation in the Kupyansk direction

Kupyansk was liberated from the occupiers in the fall of 2022. In the summer of 2023, the Russians are trying to re-occupy this logistically important city. The Kremlin wants Russian troops to capture Avdeevka and Kupyansk before the start of the presidential elections in the Russian Federation. In this way, Putin wants to achieve success during the election campaign. Recently, the Russians are increasingly sending reserves of assault battalions to Kupyansk.
