"The enemy is trying to attack head-on": AFU on the real situation around Chasiv Yar

The enemy is gathering additional troops in the direction of Chasiv Yar and Ivanivske

Chasiv Yar, Donetsk region, is currently free of Russian occupants, but the enemy is massing its forces in the direction of the town and the village of Ivanivske. These settlements remain the hottest spots on this frontline.

For the Russians, it would be important to capture Chasiv Yar before the Ukrainian forces receive foreign assistance. This was stated by Lieutenant Colonel Nazar Voloshyn, spokesman for the Khortytsia Operational and Strategic Group of Troops, in a commentary to Interfax-Ukraine.

According to him, the Ukrainian Defense Forces control the situation around Chasiv Yar. The Russian army is actively shelling the outskirts of the town, but the situation has not changed over the week. Active fighting continues day and night, Voloshyn said.

"Russian propaganda periodically claims that their army has entered the city. The enemy has not had any territorial successes in recent days, there is no enemy Russian army in the city," he emphasized.

''The enemy is trying to attack head-on'': AFU on the real situation around Chasiv Yar

In order to capture the town, the Russian army is trying to outflank it through the settlements to the right and left - Bohdanivka and Ivanivske - actively storming them to take Chasiv Yar into an operational encirclement. "The enemy is trying to go head-on, where there is a canal, an artificial obstacle, but they are not fully succeeding," the spokesman noted.

At the same time, the Russians continue to wipe out Chasiv Yar and the surrounding settlements with aircraft and artillery. The enemy is probably preparing the ground for the next wave of attacks.

In the Chasiv Yar area, they are completing the regrouping and deploying additional assault groups near Bilohorivka. The enemy is also moving assault groups to Klishchiivka and Andriivka.

"In this area, the enemy is trying to find the frontline areas where it believes it can develop success, and is bringing additional troops and reserves to advance. The enemy is already advancing near Bilohorivka and Rozdolivka, trying to break through and block Siversk to create conditions for continuing the offensive on Sloviansk," the spokesman said.

The enemy is also trying to regain control of Klishchiivka. In general, the enemy has no success in this area, and their advance has been stopped. However, Russian troops continue to exert pressure, so fighting continues in this area of the frontline.

As reported, after unsuccessful assaults on the town of Chasiv Yar in the Donetsk region, Russian troops tried to outflank the town but failed. Ukrainian Defense Forces units are holding their positions firmly.
