“According to General Staff reports, the situation has been the most difficult in the Lysychansk, Bakhmutsk, and Kharkiv directions over the last few days. The enemy is attempting to conduct assault operations in the direction of Sloviansk in order to improve their tactical position “He stated.

He added that the enemy’s goal remains complete control of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Muzychuk clarified that while fierce fighting is currently taking place near Lysychansk, the city itself is not surrounded and is under Ukrainian control.

At the same time, there is a significant threat of rocket and artillery shelling of Ukraine’s southern and northern regions, including the border areas of Sumy and Chernihiv.

At the same time, Muzychuk added that Russian forces used more modern missiles at the start of the all-out invasion of Ukraine. Soviet-made missiles are now used. They are, however, no less dangerous, he says.

According to Muzychuk, both the National Police and the National Guard are taking numerous measures to fortify Ukrainian border regions, including parts of the border with Belarus.

In addition to actions related to direct border strengthening, he said, preventive measures are being taken against individuals who can cooperate with the enemy and provide information for the launch of strikes.
