The Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering heavy losses in the area of Lysichansk. This was reported to journalists in the Russian Ministry of Defense.
According to the officials, the allied forces of the Russian Federation and the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) continue their successful offensive. Over the past three days, they have taken control of the Lysichansk Oil Refinery, the Matrosskaya mine, the gelatin plant and the Tupolevka settlement. The units of Russia and the LPR went directly to Lysichansk.
As representatives of the Ministry of Defense explained, a critical situation is developing in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
"Only in the village of Verkhnekamenka, the enemy lost more than 120 people killed in a day, in Verkhnekamensky - 70," the department commented.
The United States does not recognize the entry of Ukrainian territories into Russia. Such a development will seriously complicate prospects for a diplomatic settlement
