Situation difficult in Luhansk region as invaders deploy massive forces to gain ground - Haidai.

The situation in the Luhansk region remains difficult at the moment as the Russian army has made every effort to seize the entire region.

According to Ukrinform, this was announced by the head of the Luhansk military administration, Serhiy Haidai, via Telegram.

"We’re having a difficult situation as the Russian army is doing its utmost to capture Luhansk region. They have a huge goal and a big strategic plan – to advance to the administrative borders of Luhansk region. But, even if they captured Sievierodonetsk or cut the Lysychansk-Bakhmut route, they would have already passed it off as their great victory," the head of the region said.

He reminded that tomorrow, May 24, will mark three months since Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and over these three months, Russian invaders have failed to gain a small enough territory of Luhansk region.

They have now switched to their favorite tactics – they are simply destroying everything, now Sievierodonetsk is being totally pummeled. The situation has been just as difficult for three months in other areas. Haidai stated that the enemy is constantly trying to penetrate Ukraine’s defense lines.

He also noted that a number of traitors are fighting against the Ukrainian forces in Luhansk region – “orcs from the ‘LPR,’ who know the area well, which greatly complicates the situation. They know all the roads and bridges, they understand that there is only one path left leading to Sievierodonetsk. This road is already under constant fire, which complicates evacuation and delivery of humanitarian goods.

"Liberating a single village or city, while having the whole army killed there is not an option," the official said, adding that while Luhansk region is holding back an enemy invasion, the Ukrainian army is preparing for a large-scale counteroffensive this summer.
