Invasion Day 208 – Summary

The summary of the 208th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 19th September 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Ukrainian Army secured the remaining part of Kupyansk and liberated several settlements in Donetsk Oblast. They also re-entered Luhansk Oblast and liberated Bilohorivka.

Russian forces continue to focus solely on Bakhmut and its nearby vicinity, where they’re having a minor success, but at large cost.

Kharkiv Front

includes the area of Kharkiv and Chuhuiv

 Kharkiv & Chuhuiv direction

  • Ukrainian forces crossed the Oskil river in Kupyansk and liberated the eastern part of the city.
  • Ukrainian Army is in no rush to advance pass the Oskil river. It currently focuses primarily on the securing the newly liberated area and setting up fortification system in order to repel any potential Russian attack.

Bakhmut Front

includes the vicinity of Bakhmut

  • Russian forces attempted to advance closer to Vesela Dolyna, Zaitseve and also tried to reach the eastern outskirts of Bakhmut. Neither attempt was successful. They did, however, captured an electrical substation near Vesela Dolyna.
  • Ukrainian forces repelled Russian attack towards Kurdyumivka, Mykolaivka Druha and Odradivka.

Slovyansk Front

Slovyansk direction

  • Ukrainian forces liberated Yarova near Svyatohirsk.
  • Ukrainian Army built a pontoon bridge near Bohorodychne, indicating well secured left bank in the area.
  • According to the recent report by Ukrainian General Staff, Ukrainian forces repulsed Russian attack in the vicinity of Sosnove. The settlement was marked as contested.
  • Several Russian and Ukrainian sources reported about the liberation of Studenok. However, as there’s been no visual proof yet, we cannot confirm or deny it.

Note: During my vacation, Ukrainian forces liberated Pasika, Yeremivka, Svyatohirsk, Shchurove and Dibrova.

Seeing the news today about the partial mobilization. 300,000 people to be called up. But: what equipment will they be given? I’m sure the Russians can give them guns… but what about tanks? Artillery guns? Armored vehicles? (Is this where the equipment gained by Ukraine in Izium and other areas really starts to bite?)

USSR leve a lot of old tanks. Artillery guns. but I’m not sure how much is Russia still keeping now.

“In the Kramatorsk direction, the Russian forces shelled the areas of Oleksandrivka,…”

Hard to believe that Studenok and Sosnove are not liberated if the area of Oleksandrivka is shelled.

“Pravdyne is marked as contested for the time being.”
It is marked russian.
Nice to have you back!

Mala Seymedynukha (Kherson) was reported at least contested if not secured
Some Ru sources are adamant that the Ukr made crossing in the Bilohorivka (I think it’s just PTSD), they are at the same time denies crossing and securing E side of the river around/in Kupiansk (but @Rybar acknowledges)
Yatskivka was reported liberated Ru had left Studenok (Kharkiv/Izium area), Krymky (probably) ->>

Noelle

->>
and Oleksandrivka (atm, combat in progress) are contested. Sosnove was also reported liberated.

Good to have you back!
