“We are waiting for good news from Ugledar. The encirclement and subsequent liberation of this city solves many problems,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.
So, according to Pushilin, if Russian troops take control of Ugledar, they will get access to the Red Army and Kurakhov directions. “And this can already radically change the balance of power at the front,” the acting head of the region said.
The day before, the first drone footage appeared on Telegram channels over the outskirts of Ugledar, where the Russian military entered on Wednesday. They show burning buildings and rising clouds of smoke in the dusk.
Earlier it became known that the Russian forces managed to cut one of the roads from the western direction, along which the Ukrainian troops were supplied in Vuhledar.
