Details: According to Ukrainska Pravda, those are the settlements of Strileche, Krasne, Pylna, and Borysivka. The Russians are attempting to march towards Vovchansk.

Ukrainska Pravda sources, however, do not rule out the possibility that this is a Russian distraction.

Updated: Ukrainska Pravda found that small arms skirmishes are underway near the settlements of Strileche, Borysivka, Pylna and Krasne. The Russians are also trying to further advance in the areas of the settlements of Strileche-Krasne and Pletenivka-Hatyshche.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian soldiers are counteracting Russia’s intentions to advance as much as possible, firing artillery on Russian forces. Based on communications interceptions, the Russians lament their losses. Russian forces regroup and gather forces, creating separate assault groups.
