Russian forces are still focused on defending their current positions in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook post on June 30.
The invaders used tanks, mortars, artillery and multiple launch rocket systems to attack the city of Kharkiv, and the towns of Pytomnyk, Ukraiinka, Dementiivka, Prudyanka, Korobochkine, and Rubizhne.
Near Dementiivka, an attempted Russian assault was decisively repelled, forcing the enemy to withdraw.
Verkhnii Saltiv and Prudyanka were targeted by Russian air strikes.
Near Slovyansk, Russian troops are holding the line and regrouping; they also launched a variety of artillery attacks at Mazanivka, Dubrovne, and Krasnopillia.
