The divisions of the national guard of russia and militants of the "DNR" and "LNR" quasi-formations have retreated from Kharkiv to significantly remote positions. This was reported by russian saboteur and terrorist Igor Girkin (Strelkov).
He notes that these units are manned by poorly armed so-called "L-DNR" reservists.
"The withdrawal of the LDNR units and units of the national guard of russia, staffed entirely by the poorly armed reservists, to new positions, that are significantly remote from Kharkiv compared to the previous ones, has ended", - Girkin writes.
According to him, in some places, the withdrawal took place without the direct influence of the AFU, in other places - as a result of direct pressure from Ukrainian soldiers "on extremely insufficiently armed, very small and completely untrained/inexperienced units of the "allies".
Girkin also informed that trench war is currently continuing in the area of Kharkiv.
As OstroV reported, the AFU liberated four settlements in the Kharkiv oblast from russian invaders, thanks to which the occupiers retreated from Kharkiv even further.
