General Staff: The Russian military has significantly intensified aviation in the Pokrovsk area

According to the report of the General Staff on the evening of June 11, the most tense situation remains in the Pokrovsky direction in the Donetsk Oblast.

According to the Ukrainian army, the country’s Defense Forces are putting up fierce resistance and stopping the Russian offensive. Six battles are currently being fought in this direction.

Russian occupation forces continue to put pressure on our defenses near Novooleksandrivka. In the afternoon, the Russian army significantly intensified the combat work of its aviation, carrying out five raids in the area of ​​the settlements of Vovche, Oleksandropol, Vozdzyzhenka, Yevhenivka and Zhelanne.

By then, the number of combat engagements along the entire front line had increased to 87. Towards Kharkov, Russian troops made another attempt to storm our positions – a battle was taking place near the village of Glyboke.

Since June 11, Ukrainian forces have repelled four attacks in the area of ​​Vovchansk and the same Glyboke. In the direction of Kupiańsko, Russian forces tried to storm the positions of the Defense Forces eight times.

“Five of them ended in failure, and three assaults are still ongoing near the settlements of Piszczane, Berestowe and Synkovka. The situation is under control,” says the General Staff, adding that Ukrainian forces are actively destroying Russians, and so far 134 Russians have been killed or injured in this direction. Four artillery guns and four Russian vehicles were damaged.

Russian forces in the direction of Vremivka “do not give up trying to limit our defense potential, as well as intimidate the civilian population”, carrying out four airstrikes on June 11, hitting the areas of Staromayorske, Kostyantynivka, Blagodatne and Urozhaine.

From the beginning of the day, Russian troops tried hard to dislodge the Ukrainian units from their positions towards Orychiv, attacking six times.

“He was sharply rejected in the vicinity of Mala Tokmachka, Shcherbaki, Novoprokopivka and Verbove.”
