In the Kharkiv direction, he said, the Russians “filled this area with a jumble they pulled from Lugansk, Donetsk, and their troops of the third and fourth categories.” – The Ukrainians recognized it, they learned from the locals that the army was weak and demoralized. They organized an attack in two selected directions, broke through shallow defenses, up to five kilometers, and entered the operational space in two directions – on Kupiansk and Izium. The Ukrainians broke up a Russian army strike group that stormed Donbas from April 3, the general analyzed further.
