2 Ukraine — Donbass

The Russian, the DPR, and the LPR forces simultaneously move towards each other from north, east, and south, while doing their own military missions on the go. Their main mission is to close the huge cauldron with the Ukrainian forces. Active and passive positional battles are taking place all over the frontlines. On the frontline of Severodonetsk-Lisichansk-Rubezhnoye, battles with the use of heavy weapons and aircraft are taking place. On the north — namely at the border of the Kharkov and Donetsk regions — battles began near the towns of Slavyansk and Barvenkovo after the complete capture of the city of Izyum, and the capture of the villages of Kamenki and Staraya Kamenki. The Ukrainian resistance in that area was serious, but eventually the frontline began to move. The Russian forces took positions on the southern bank of the Seversky Donets River, where they are gathering forces.
