Russian invasion forces are assaulting nearly the entire line of contact on the Donetsk front, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on Facebook on April 27.
The main efforts of the enemy are focused on offensive operations in the Sievierodonetsk, Popasna, and Kurakhiv areas in order to take full control of the settlements of Popasna, Rubizhne, and develop the offensive on Lyman, Severodonetsk, and Slovyansk.
On the Lyman axis, the invaders have established control over the settlement of Zarichne and are conducting assault operations in the area of the village of Yampil.
On the Sievierodonetsk axis, the invaders have gained control over the settlement of Novotoshkivske, and are conducting an offensive in the direction of the settlements of Nyzhnie and Orikhove.
On the Mariupol axis, the enemy is continuing the blockade and shelling ofUkrainian units near the Azovstal steelworks. In the city itself, the invaders are continuing to subject the civilian population to “filtration” – what witnesses have called “loyalty” tests to Russia, and have subjected Ukrainian civilians to arbitrary torture.
