The Ukrainian army continues its counterattack in the northeast, while Russian forces have established a defensive line between the Uskil River and the city of Svatov. This was confirmed by the British Ministry of Defense on Saturday in a periodic report based on intelligence findings.

“It is likely that Russia will consider maintaining its control over this region important as it passes through one of the few major resupply routes that Russia still controls from its Belgorod region,” the British ministry said on Twitter.

“They will most likely try to defend stubbornly in this area, but it is unclear whether the Russian forces on the front lines have sufficient reserves or enough morale to withstand another focused Ukrainian attack,” the ministry added.

The American Institute for the Study of War has warned that Russian forces may launch false-flag attacks in the temporarily occupied territories between today and Tuesday. He also goes back to the discovery of graves containing more than 440 bodies in the liberated city of Izgom in the Kharkiv region.

According to the institute, this confirms its previous assumptions that the atrocities in the town of Bucha, near Kyiv, are typical of crimes that occurred during the Russian wars in the temporarily occupied territories.

On Friday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky commented on the terrible discovery several times. In his usual evening speech in this context, he called for punishing Moscow for war crimes. In his words, the world should not watch a “terrorist” Russia kill and torture. According to him, Russia should be punished with more stringent sanctions.

“There is already clear evidence of torture and humiliating treatment of people. In addition, there is evidence that Russian soldiers, whose positions were not far from this place, were shooting at the buried for fun. At the same time, he appreciated the desire of the United Nations to send experts to document the crimes of “Russian terrorists”.

At the same time, Zelensky repeated the call to ban Russians from traveling to the European Union and to call on Western companies to leave Russia. “When a country embarks on the path of terrorism, it is the duty of a self-respecting company to distance itself from such a state,” Zelensky emphasized.

On the other hand, the head of the administration for the occupation of the Kharkiv region in exile Vitaly Ganchev accused the Ukrainians of perpetrating the atrocities in Izyum, according to his spokesman, and welcomed the fact that the UN monitors would go to the city “to try to find out more about what could happen”.

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Army said in today’s updated balance sheet of Russian losses that Russia has lost 54,250 soldiers, 2202 tanks, 4701 armored fighting vehicles, 3571 other vehicles and tanks, 1306 artillery systems, 312 rocket launchers and 168 systems since the war.
