Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Oleksandr Syrskyi, emphasizes the need to "change our defensive and offensive mindset". He stated this on Telegram on June 12 after working with the troops.

"For several days, I worked with military units defending the hottest spots on the Eastern front. The enemy continues to carry out active offensive actions of varying intensity along almost the entire front, focusing its main efforts on the Pokrovsk and Kurakhove directions. Here, the enemy has concentrated the largest number of its assault units from eight strike brigades. Fierce battles on these fronts have been ongoing for several months, and during this time, our soldiers have bravely held back the enemy's advance", - Syrskyi noted.

According to him, battles are ongoing in the areas of Chasiv Yar, Klishchiivka, and Kalynivka. The enemy is trying to capture these settlements to expand their advance towards Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.

"The enemy is unsuccessfully assaulting Bilohorivka, which has become a vivid example of the resilience of the Ukrainian army in the Luhansk oblast. The enemy is pushing towards Siversk from two directions, but every time they are pushed back, leaving the bodies of their soldiers behind. In the Kharkiv direction, the enemy is conducting unsuccessful operations, trying to advance deeper into our defensive lines and create a so-called 'security belt'. In Vovchansk, the enemy is stuck despite the forces and resources they are constantly replenishing from other directions. In the Zaporizhzhia direction, the aggressor is conducting offensive actions in the areas of Staromayorske and Robotyne, but with little success. In the Krynky area, fights continue to hold the bridgehead and control the islands, without significant changes in the situation or positions of the sides", - Syrskyi stated.

He emphasized, "In these conditions, it is crucial for us to hold our lines and positions, prevent breakthroughs in our defense, and maximize the destruction of enemy manpower and equipment".

"We need to achieve superiority over the enemy, reduce losses, and most importantly, change our defensive and offensive mindset, which will be a significant step towards our victory! To this end, we are focusing our efforts on improving the quality of training sessions with units undergoing combat coordination. These sessions address issues such as countering enemy drones and protection from them, maneuvering on the battlefield, using electronic warfare means, evacuating the wounded, and many other relevant issues in modern combat. Only technological superiority and well-trained troops will ensure our success on the battlefield! Glory to Ukraine!", - wrote the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
