Situation in the Vovchansk direction

More than a month ago, the Russian forces launched an offensive in the north of Kharkiv region and partially advanced in Vovchansk.

At the same time, the Russian troops are suffering heavy losses in this direction of the front. Recently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine stated that the Kremlin plans to engage units of the 155th Separate Marine Brigade from the Pacific Fleet to perform tasks in this direction.
