Ukrainian journalist Yurii Butusov, the editor-in-chief of the media, reports that russian military of the 90th Tank Division (have the BMPT “Terminators” at disposal) and the 76th Air Assault Division are trying to break through defenses in Luhansk region.

There is no confirmed information whether the artillerymen managed to ∂єѕтяσу the vehicles. Yet the sole fact that BMPT “Terminator” almost got preyed on by the Ukrainian artillery instead of having some sort of overwhelming victory, says that the whole concept of Terminators’ combat use completely failed.

Still, despite the fact that the russian army doesn’t demonstrate any “original” approach to the use of its “miraculous ωєαρσи” on the battlefield, the situation on the frontline is still difficult, according to Yurii Butusov:
“The enemy is trying hard to break through our defenses and encircle [Ukrainian forces] once more. But the Ukrainian army is strongly resisting and making efforts to crush the σƒƒєиѕινє group of the russian armed forces. There are very difficult battles going on.”
