“The greater part” of Vovchansk in Kharkiv Oblast is under the control of the Defense Forces of Ukraine, Nazar Voloshyn, the spokesman of the “Khortytsia” OSU, said on the air of the telethon.

“The greater part of the city is fully controlled by the Defense Forces of Ukraine, and the part where the Russian servicemen are trying to stay is under our fire control,” Voloshyn said.

He noted that “The defense forces are inflicting maximum losses on the enemy and are trying to move forward to liberate all our territories.”

“Losses of the enemy in that direction (Kharkivskyi – ed.) more than 130 people were irretrievably injured, one tank, eight artillery systems, nine cars, and more than 40 UAVs were destroyed. And, of course, 36 personnel shelters together with personnel. Also, in that direction, marines of the 36th marine brigade recently captured several Russian military servicemen. It was several officers and several soldiers of the Russian army,” said the spokesman of the Khortytsya Security Service.

Earlier, the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Oleksandr Syrskyi announced the difficult situation near Kupyansk, where the enemy is trying to break through Ukrainian defenses from two directions. In general, according to him, the troops of the Russian Federation continue to carry out offensive operations, concentrating the main efforts on the Kurakhiv, Pokrovsky, Kupyansk, and Kharkiv directions.

From 50 to 80% of the housing stock of Vovchansk has been destroyed and cannot be restored, analysts of the DeepState project write. Meanwhile, the Defense Forces of Ukraine have regained positions in Vovchansk along Dukhovnaya Street in the center of the city, according to analysts of the Institute for the Study of War.

In the occupied part of Vovchansk, Russian forces have created a filtration camp, Oleg Synegubov, the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, said on the air of the telethon.
