On the Slovyansk axis, the Russian invaders are conducting assault operations in order to improve their tactical situation, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on Facebook on June 8.

In order to prevent a counteroffensive by Ukrainian troops, the enemy is currently engaged in developing firing positions near the occupied town of Izyum.

Meanwhile, towards Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city pre-war, the invaders are focused on holding onto their current positions, the military says. The General Staff adds that the Russians are continuing to mine occupied territory to ward off Ukrainian liberation advances.
