Russia is amassing forces to attack Kharkiv and the Joint Forces Operation zones, Ukrainian Defence Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzianyk said on April 5.

“The enemy's main efforts were focused on preparing for the resumption of an offensive in order to surround the groups of the Joint Forces Operation and capture the city of Kharkiv,” Motuzianyk said.

He also said that the invaders are stockpiling ammunition, missiles and fuel, as well as preparing medical facilities to receive a large number of wounded.

The summary of the General Staff, published on Monday, April 4, says that the enemy continues to blockade Kharkiv and launch artillery strikes on the city.

At the end of March, Ukrainian soldiers launched counteroffensives in several areas of Kharkiv Oblast. The villages of Mala Rohan and Vilkhivka were cleared of Russians. The enemy was also pushed out of the village of Husarivka, near Balakliia.
