The Russian occupation forces are transferring their paratroopers from the Kherson direction to Luhansk Oblast, but those are incapable of changing the situation in the area, the Luhansk Regional Military Administration’s Head Serhii Haidai said, according to Interfax Ukraine.

“[Those can] delay our offensive for a while – yes, start a counteroffensive – no,” he wrote on Facebook.

As of today, 12 settlements have been liberated in the region.

“The liberated villages look terrible, they are destroyed to the ground. There are people there, so we supply them with humanitarian aid and still hope that the local residents will want to evacuate as shelling never stops,” he said.

Russia pulled out its troops from the western-bank Kherson Oblast in early November and the Ukrainian troops secured the area around 9-12 November. The regional capital city of Kherson was liberated on 11 November.
