As Commander of the Defence Forces, Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev reports, that the situation at the front remains difficult but fully controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“In Donetsk and especially in Luhansk regions, the enemy ramps up its forces and hardware day and night to reach certain areas with further efforts to encircle the Ukrainian troops… Our defenders, sacrificing their lives and health, restrain the enemy attacks and make every effort to hold the sections of the front where the enemy continues to amass additional forces and hardware,” the commander said.
He also noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were reinforcing the defence in the direction of Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia.
At the same time, The New York Times reports that the Biden administration approved sending GMLRS and HIMARS long-range multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine.
According to the NYT, the decision has already been made, and it can be officially announced next week.
It is unclear how many such systems will be provided by the United States. A source told the media outlet that the weapons could arrive in Ukraine within a few weeks.
