On the border between Ukraine and Russia in the Kharkiv region, in the morning of May 10, the Russian terrorist army tried to break through our defense. Civilians continue to be evacuated from Vovchansk and the surrounding villages.

Tamaz Gambarashvili, the head of the Vovchansk City Military Administration, confirmed the evacuation in a commentary to the media. He said that the authorities, police, and volunteers are helping people.

"Most people are leaving by their own transport. But at the same time, together with the humanitarian center, we are organizing the evacuation of those locals who do not have their own cars. We work together with volunteers and the police. We are taking people out of Vovchansk and nearby settlements," Gambarashvili told Hromadske Radio.

Local residents say that the shelling on the night of May 10 was perhaps the most massive since the beginning of the war."It is dangerous to be in Vovchansk now. Since three in the morning, there have been UAVs, artillery, and MLRS attacks," added the head of the CMA.

How the occupiers shelled Kharkiv region on Friday night:

Fighting on the border

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirmed that the Russian army attempted to break through the defense line under the cover of armored vehicles at about 5 a.m. on May 10.

As of 13:00 on Friday, the Defense Forces repelled the attacks, and fighting of varying intensity continued.

The Ministry of Defense noted that the enemy used guided aerial bombs and other weapons in the Vovchansk sector, increasing fire pressure on the front line of Ukrainian defense as the night began.

"Reserve units have been deployed to strengthen the defense in this area. The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to hold back the enemy's offensive," the press service said.

According to the source, the situation so far looks like reconnaissance by combat. Groups of occupiers entered our territory with the support of one tank and two armored personnel carriers without further deep advance.

At 13:13, DeepState published photo evidence that the Russian Armed Forces had already suffered losses in a new active section of the front. Previously, three pieces of enemy equipment were burned north of the villages of Morokhovets and Oliinykove. The Russians were moving from the direction of the village of Pylna.

Reuters believes that the Russian army has launched a ground armored attack on the northeastern part of the Kharkiv region, "trying to create a buffer zone".

The agency cites a senior Ukrainian military source. The source told reporters that the invaders "are trying to push the Ukrainian Armed Forces back 10 kilometers from the Russian border."

As OBOZ.UA wrote, the head of the Kharkiv regional military administration, Oleh Syniehubov, for his part, said that shelling had intensified and that Russian subversive reconnaissance groups were attempting to cross the border (as of the morning of May 10).
