On the Kharkiv axis, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have advanced deep into the enemy's defense lines and gained a foothold in the liberated territories.
Oleksii Hromov, deputy chief of the main operational department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said this at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine - Ukrinform.
"On the Kharkiv axis, the enemy does not conduct active hostilities, attempting to keep control of the captured territories and launching rocket strikes. Ukraine's defense forces advanced deep into the enemy's defense lines and gained a foothold in the liberated territories," Hromov said.
In the Chernihiv, Konotop, and Sumy areas, enemy forces continue to use various types of artillery. However, the intensity of such shelling instances has decreased from 50 to 39. One rocket shelling was recorded in the past week.
Hromov also noted that in order to distract the attention of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a group of troops protecting the Russian state border has been deployed in the regions bordering Ukraine. "These troops include conscripts or officers who refused to fight in Ukraine," he said.
Hromov earlier said that the probability of an enemy attack from Belarus or Belarusian troops invading Ukraine remains low.
