War in Ukraine: current data
Russian troops focused on the capture of Donbass. On August 1, the enemy conducted assault operations in the directions of Avdiivka and Peskov, but had no success.
According to the head of the Lugansk OVA, Sergei Gaidai, the occupiers still cannot capture two unconquered villages in the region. The humanitarian crisis in the occupied territories is getting worse.
Meanwhile, according to SBU Colonel Roman Kostenko, The Russian Federation is building up forces for an offensive in the south and the capture of the Odessa region and Nikolaev.
Analysts at the Institute for the Study of War noted that the enemy exposes the Slavic direction, concentrating on the southern defensive line. This will probably allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to launch a counteroffensive in the Izyum direction.
