“In the south, the offensive continues in several directions”, says Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister
Ukraine’s Deputy Defense Minister said on Tuesday that, “to the south, the offensive continues in several directions”. “Everything is going according to the plan established by the military”assured Hanna Maliar. “There are definite advances in all the areas where our soldiers are moving. But the enemy does not give up the positions he occupies, so fierce fighting and a very powerful battle continue”she continued on Telegram.
“We are moving forward gradually, in small steps, but with a lot of confidence. We can even use the allegory that we are “gnawing away every meter of the enemy’s ground”. In the south, there are battles in areas where Ukrainian soldiers are advancing and the enemy is on the defensive. At the same time, we have areas where, on the contrary, the enemy is advancing and we are on the defensive. For example, Kupyansk and Lyman »acknowledged the Deputy Minister.
“Clearly people want it to be like a movie – editing, very quick, at 1pm the movie started, after 1:20 it’s over and you know what happened. Of course, it won’t be like that in real life, and war is a completely different situation. We will advance gradually, with difficulty, in the face of fierce enemy resistance.”added Hanna Maliar.
