 Concentration of Russian military and equipment spotted near Triokhizbenka

Significant concentration of Russian military and heavy machinery was seen near the village of Zhovte near Triokhizbenka in the Luhansk region.

This is stated by Adviser to the Interior Minister Zorian Shkiriak on his page on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"A significant concentration of Russian military, as well as heavy equipment: tanks, trucks, tankers, and five large trucks with pontoons has been spotted in the vicinity of Zhovte village near Triokhizbenka and Slovianoserbsk. This may indicate a possible attempt of the Russian-terrorist forces to build a ferry across the Siverskyi Donets river for rapid deployment of the enemy's armored vehicles, artillery, and troops in the direction of the ATO forces," Shkiriak said.

"Heavy fighting with units of the regular Russian army continues. The enemy is constantly attacking and trying to break through the defense of the ATO forces. The Armed Forces, the National Guard, Interior Ministry units, and our volunteer battalions courageously hold the line and offer strong resistance to the aggressor. The Russian Armed Forces are suffering huge losses in manpower and equipment," Shkiriak said.
