Russians left Kreminna, Luhansk Oblast, but Ukrainian military haven’t yet entered the city – Luhansk Oblast Head Serhii Haidai
Russians have already left Kreminna, Luhansk Oblast, but the Armed Forces of Ukraine have not yet entered the city, according to the head of the Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, Serhii Haidai.

Around Lyman, Donetsk Oblast, fighting is still going on, as per Haidai.

He believes that a large-scale de-occupation of Luhansk Oblast will begin from Kreminna and Svatove. He says Ukraine’s main strikes will be in the area of these cities, where the Russians have already begun to concentrate their equipment.

The Luhansk Oblast Head says that today the Russian troops have left Kreminna and local partisans have raised the Ukrainian flag over the city. “The situation in Starobilsk is somewhat similar,” Haidai says.

He also noted that Russians first fled Svatovo, but returned after a while.

There is a shortage of fuel in the occupied territories due to the large-scale escape of the invaders and collaborators, Haidai noted. Euromaidan Press can confirm the shortage of fuel in the parts of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts occupied since 2014 as local residents from both Donetsk and Luhansk have been reporting the lack of fuel for several days now.


Local sources deny Serhii Haidai’s reports that Russian troops have abandoned Kreminna:

“Regarding Kreminna, none of the orcs (Russians, – Ed.) left the city, the b*tches are sitting in the city center, the equipment [column] sits [stretching] from the furniture factory up to mine number one. The flag that the partisans hoisted earlier was torn down the next day,” reads a report from locals cited by the Telegram Channel “Luhanshchyna Operatyvna”
