Quote: “Our units have reclaimed the village of Torske, located on the road to Kreminna; and they are shelling the enemy’s units that are trying to entrench and build defences in Kreminna.
For them [occupiers – ed.] it is very important to hold Kreminna now. After liberating Kreminna, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will enter Svatove and Rubizhne, and will be able to liberate Luhansk Oblast further… [The cities of] Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk will come next. They bragged a lot about these cities last summer; that they had taken them with unbelievable efforts.”
Details: While commenting on the liberation of Lyman, where thousands of occupiers were encircled, Cherevatyi said that “part of them has been killed, part has been captured, and part has succeeded to retreat in small convoys or groups. Now, some part of them is trying to defend Kreminna.”
The spokesman for Eastern grouping of Ukrainian forces has pointed out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were capturing the remaining occupiers in the woods near Lyman, and they were clearing mines as the place is heavily mined.
