Only “representatives of the people’s militia” from among the local residents remained in the city.
Russian invaders in Svatovo, Lugansk region, in a panic, packed their things and fled because of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which is approaching the region.
This is stated in the summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the morning of September 12.
During the retreat, Russian troops hurriedly pack their belongings, evacuate families and flee from their positions deep into the temporarily occupied territories.
“In the Luhansk region, the Russian military with their families left the city of Svatovo, leaving only the soldiers of the so-called “people’s militia” from among the local residents,” the report says.
According to the General Staff, the Russians are taking out the property and vehicles stolen from local residents from the settlements of Veliky Burluk and Dvuhletnaya in the Kharkiv region.
As UNIAN reported earlier, yesterday the General Staff reported that as a result of a successful counter-offensive by Ukrainian troops in the Kharkiv direction, the Russian invaders were leaving their positions and fleeing with the loot deep into the temporarily occupied territories or into Russia. In particular, the invaders fled from Svatovo in Kamaz trucks and armored Tigers.
