Russians blow up bridges due to approach of Ukraine’s Armed Forces

30 OCTOBER 2022

Serhii Haidai, the head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration, has stated that the Russian occupiers blew up a bridge over the Krasna River near the village of Krasnorichenske in Luhansk Oblast, because they were afraid that Ukraine’s Armed Forces were closing in.

Quote from Haidai: “They are scared because we are very close. The Russians blew up the bridge over the Krasna River near Krasnorichenske.”

Details: Haidai has revealed photos of the wrecked bridge.

He also added that the occupiers had blown up another bridge near Kreminna (Luhansk Oblast) on 29 October.

Haidai stated that the Russian command tasked its troops with stopping the advance of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, but the weather was getting better, so “things would speed up for the defenders [Ukrainians]”. 

The head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration noted that the Russians systematically attack Bilohorivka, and after that they send troops ahead to scout, but these “traditionally do not return”. 

Heavy fighting is also taking place on the Svatove front. 

The route between Svatove and Kreminna is under the fire control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so the Russians cannot receive reinforcements and new ammunition in these areas of the contact zone quickly.

According to Haidai, almost everything around Kreminna and Svatove was mined, including riverbanks, roads and bridges.

The situation on the Bakhmut front is very tense, too.

In addition, Serhii Haidai with reference to intelligence has reported that as a result of the liberation of the village of Nevske, the Armed Forces of Ukraine killed 34 occupiers.

Three more Russian “contract military” were captured. Ukraine’s Armed Forces also seized a military KAMAZ truck with ammunition and two infantry fighting vehicles.

  1. Given the equipment that Ukraine has compared to russia’s junk, I’m sure that those crossings can easily be forded with the AFU’s portable bridge spans. The liberation of Luhansk and Donetsk will be slowed, but NOT stopped.
