Ukrainian forces set to retake crucial strategic city from Russia - 'Kreminna WILL fall'
Bakhmut and Kreminna as well as other areas in Donbas have seen the most conflict in the country
Ukrainian forces are set to retake a crucial strategic city from Russia according to reports, as fighting in the region intensifies.
Bakhmut and Kreminna as well as other areas in Donbas have seen the most conflict in the country.
On Monday Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the situation in the region was “difficult and painful”.
In a statement, the Ukrainian President said: “"First of all, matters at the front. Bakhmut, Kreminna and other areas in Donbas, which require a maximum of strength and concentration."
"The situation there is difficult and painful. The occupiers are deploying all resources available to them — and these are considerable resources - to make some sort of advance."
Now, it appears that the city of Kreminna in Luhansk could be recaptured by Ukraine.
The regional governor Serhiy Haidai said Russian fighters had been forced to retreat under intense pressure from Ukrainians.
Writing on Telegram he said: “The Russians understand that if they lose Kreminna, their entire line of defence will fall,”
“The Russian occupation troops managed to build a very powerful defence in a month, even a little more. They are bringing there a huge amount of reserves and equipment. They are constantly renewing their forces.”
Earlier this week Russia announced it would ban oil sales to countries that abide by a price cap imposed this month by the West, while its forces were involved in heavy fighting around the bombed-out ghost town of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine.
