The armed forces of Ukraine retreated from the destroyed Popasna to more fortified positions, which were prepared in advance.
This was announced on the air of the informational telethon by the head of the Lugansk regional military administration, Sergei Gaidai.
“Unfortunately, our troops really retreated a little from Popasna, because the city was shelled for more than two months. There are bombs, and rockets, mines and artillery. Everything is destroyed there to the ground. Therefore, ours retreated to stronger positions that were prepared in advance,” – he said.
Gaidai also noted that heavy fighting is currently underway in the direction of Severodonetsk-Voevodovka, as well as on the territory of the Gorskaya community, which includes such settlements as Toshkovka, Katerynivka, Zolote-4.
Recall that early in the morning on February 24, Russia broke into Ukraine.
The enemy first dropped bombs on military installations, and then attacked civilians in a number of settlements. Later, the invaders went on the offensive in parts of eastern Ukraine.
On May 6, it became known that the enemies were erasing Popasna from the map of the Luhansk region.
