Russian troops are heavily mining every road in Luhansk Oblast, aiming to halt advancing Ukrainian troops, regional governor Serhiy Hayday said in a Telegram post on Oct. 11.
According to Hayday, almost every road, bridge, and administrative building is laden with explosives.
The governor added that locals will be told when it becomes safe to return to recently liberated towns across the region.
A successful counterattack by the Ukrainian military in the Kharkiv oblast has made de-occupation of Luhansk oblast possible. Hayday announced the beginning of the region's de-occupation on Oct. 5. At least seven villages in the oblast have been liberated as of Oct. 7.
