He said this on the air of the “Espresso” TV channel.
“Trench warfare is taking place in Soledar, that is, the positions of both sides have been fixed and it is too early to talk about the loss of Soledar. I think that the General Staff of Ukraine will work out a strategy to strengthen Ukrainian positions. The fact that the Russian side has improved its military position in Soledar does not mean that it will have strategic importance from the point of view of the results of potential battles,” Barna believes.
The soldier of the Armed Forces also added that the situation in Donbas has been difficult for the past months.
“Artillery, tank, and mortar attacks are taking place every day. The enemy is using phosphorous bombs,” Barna noted.
- The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said that Russia has made the battle for Donbas a matter of principle for itself. The battle for Bakhmut, Soledar and the entire Luhansk region continues unceasingly
- Enemy troops are advancing in the Bakhmut and Avdiiv directions. However, Ukrainian defenders continue to destroy the enemy and repel Russian attacks in the areas of 16 settlements of Donetsk region and Luhansk region
