It was impossible to build defensive fortifications on the border with Russia in the Kharkiv region, as all Ukrainian equipment and people would have been destroyed by the enemy. Several defense lines were built in the region, where possible.

Andriy Kovalenko, head of the National Security and Defense Council's Center for Countering Disinformation, said this on Telegram . He spoke about the current situation on the border of Kharkiv region, in particular in the city of Vovchansk, and urged not to confuse it with the enemy's actions against Kharkiv itself. According to Kovalenko, "everything is happening as predicted."

"Let me just remind you. It is 4 km to the border with the enemy. Vovchansk is a typical border town. Now the enemy is actively acting in its direction. Accordingly, we can say that the battle for Vovchansk is ongoing. But. This is a border town. Distinguish between the enemy's actions towards Kharkiv and towards the border," Kovalenko emphasized.

The main goal of the enemy, he said, is to force the Ukrainian command to pull back forces from the east to the area: Chasovyi Yar, Kostiantynivka, Pokrovske direction.

The head of the Center also noted that there are currently a lot of manipulations on the Internet regarding the issue of defensive fortifications in Kharkiv region.

"It was impossible to build directly on the border with the enemy because all the equipment and engineers would be destroyed by the enemy – its drones and artillery. Accordingly, the defense lines have been built in Kharkiv region, they are there, and we will tell you more about them soon. These are several reliable defense lines," Kovalenko assured.
