SPGs were sent to repair shop for 2 weeks. We have 2 injured men after shelling. AFU after our responds - 6 wounded and 1 dead.

They are now just preparing a second line of defense in case the offensive fails and they have to flee. The second line of defense is in Lisichansk and Severodonetsk. It will be terribly difficult to capture it. Lisichansk is on the hill + a river. They've built concrete pillboxes and bunkers. We are now preparing the defense and a counter-attack. We’ll hold out – there’s no choice! "
