Volodymyr Zelensky once again sounded the alarm on Saturday. “During the 346 days of this war, I often said that the situation on the front lines was difficult. And that the situation was getting complicated, ”he said in his daily message. “Now we are at such a moment again. A moment when the occupier increasingly mobilizes its forces to break through our defence. It is very difficult now in Bakhmout, Vougledar, Lyman (in the East) and in other regions”.
“The enemy is regrouping in certain areas. It is concentrating its main efforts on conducting offensive operations in the directions of Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmout, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka,” the Ukrainian Defense Ministry had warned shortly before.
