The representative of the Ministry of Defense noted that in the direction of the city of Izyum and its environs, the largest concentration of Russian units was recorded, since it is from here that they want to advance to the East.

Recall that Izyum is one of the hottest points in the confrontation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with Russian aggression in Ukraine and the hottest one in the Kharkiv region.
The General Staff claims that the Russian Federation has concentrated 22 BTGs in the Izyum region.
Yesterday it became known that in the Kharkiv region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to push the advanced units of the Russian army from the outskirts of the city, gradually freeing suburban villages in the direction of Pechenegy and Stary Saltov, as well as in the area between these two roads.
On Saturday, April 16, the advanced units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this area reached the villages of Bayrak, Kutuzovka, and also advanced in the Malaya Rogan region in an easterly direction.
