The Fight for Luhansk Oblast

September 6, 2014 – At the sight of the damaged airport in Luhansk, Lindsey Hilsum reports on what turned the tide for the rebels.

May 12, 2022 – Ukrainian Service correspondent Roman Pahulych reports from the city of Lysychansk in Ukraine’s eastern Luhansk region as fighting rages between Ukrainian and Russian forces. Conditions in the region are harsh with no water, electric lighting, or mobile phone networks.

November 3, 2022 – Ukrainian army crossed the border of Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, liberated more than ten settlements of Luhansk region and is moving towards Svatove. Infantry of the 92nd Brigade is already in Luhansk region, while artillery is still working on the border of the regions. hromadske visited the crews of the Gvozdika SPH, which consist of 90% of military men, whose home is Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Their commander, 25-year-old «Pastor», says that because of this, his men have no problems with motivation – they are moving towards home.

December 22, 2022 – No fewer than 50 Russian T-90 tanks are reportedly fielded in one small sector in Svatove in eastern Ukraine, reports Forbes. Russian arms firm Uralvagonzavod’s T-90 tanks are considered to be the best tanks in Russia’s arsenal. Local media highlighted the presence of T-90s in Svatove and their pre-deployment training with Russia’s Central Military District. The Central Military district has often been designated as Russia’s so-called “special operation zone.”

Analysts believe that Russia’s concentration of its most modern tanks in Svatove is an integral part of the Kremlin’s new war strategy in Donbas. Svatove is next to the P66 highway that threads through the forest and fields to Severodonetsk, one of the bigger cities in Donbas. The Ukrainians held Severodonetsk until a combined Russian-separatist force captured the city in July. Liberating Severodonetsk is a top priority for the Ukrainian armed forces while Putin is doing his best to hang on to the territory.

There’s been intense fighting around Kreminna – as well as Bakhmut – another key city in the Donetsk region – as President Zelenskyy said the situation on the frontlines remained “difficult and painful”.
