Russian troops heavily shelled the settlement of Bilohorivka in Luhansk Oblast using Grad rocket launchers on the night of July 20, regional governor Serhiy Hayday reported via Telegram messenger.
According to him, the invading forces fired the rocket systems several times.
The settlement of Verkhnyokamianske was also seriously damaged. Russians hit the houses of the remaining residents there with artillery, Grad systems, and aviation.
On the border of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts, Russians carried out seven rocket strikes, three mortar attacks, two cannon attacks, and two retaliation attacks with rocket artillery.
"The occupiers are looking to storm Bakhmut, that's why they are spreading terror in the settlements located on the approaches to this city," Hayday added.
At the same time, the Armed Forces managed to stop a Russian offensive near Bilohorivka. On this and other axes, the invading troops are suffering significant losses.
The Russian army has not managed to completely capture the entire territory of Luhansk Oblast. They constantly storm settlements on the border of the region and deploy sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
