Russia will likely try to mount an offensive against Sloviansk, the head of the city’s military administration, Vadym Liakh said, adding that Ukrainian forces are currently holding Moscow’s armies on the Siverskyi Donets River.
“Probably they [atacarão Sloviansk]. That’s why incoming attacks have become more frequent,” Liakh said on Wednesday (6). “I think as soon as the enemy is able to carry out assault operations, the destruction of infrastructure and the city itself will begin.”
Liakh gave an update, saying the front line is now along the Siverskyi Donets River, a “natural obstacle” that Russia has not overcome so far. He added that many fortifications were built near Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, enabling Ukrainian troops to “contain the enemy for 4 months”.
So far, Russian forces have been stationed on the Siverskyi Donets River for a month, which he thinks “will remain that way. But, unfortunately, the civilian population will be bombed more and more often.”
Liakh also explained that the situation inside the city is “tense”, given the intensification of bombing in recent weeks, with several dead and wounded.
“Critical infrastructure is operating, but there has been no centralized water supply for over a month,” he said. “There are also problems with electricity, about a third of the population is periodically without electricity. We restore it, but the enemy destroys it again.”
