Attempts to improve their positions for the attack on Bakhmut are supported by the invaders with aviation – Gaidai

Russian invaders do not stop trying to improve the tactical situation for the sake of attacking Bakhmut and nearby settlements on the border of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The invaders support their infantry with assault and army aviation, informed head of the Lugansk OVA Serhiy Gaidai.

“Thus, airstrikes were recorded near seven cities and villages during July 30. The enemy is concentrating his efforts on defeating military installations and infrastructure elements, leaving settlements without gas and electricity. The positions of the Ukrainian troops were shelled along the entire line of confrontation,” Gaidai said.

He added that the Russians fired four rockets at our positions, fired 15 times from artillery, three more from mortars. In addition, the enemy used MLRS five times and carried out three tank attacks.

“The Russians want to tie up defense operations so that we don’t have the opportunity to rotate or strengthen other areas. Also yesterday, our fighters discovered and neutralized one of the reconnaissance groups of Russians. At the same time, the enemy aviation group is conducting systematic combat operations to support the actions of ground groupings. However, the enemy’s offensive was repelled in several directions at once,” added the head of the Luhansk OVA.

At the same time, Gaidai said that in the occupied Severodonetsk, where the Russians had promised to fix the electricity supply for a month and a half, the first TV started working.

“True, it is located on board a car that moves around crowded places, broadcasts only one channel that the occupying authorities wish, and works irregularly,” the head of the UVA said.
